Happy Friday! I’m sitting here at a hotel in New York City, so I can’t stay long. I’ve got a whole city to explore! A few friends and I are spending a long weekend here, shopping, eating, exploring, and picture taking. It’s definitely my type of weekend
Anyways, I do have a new recipe for you! After our apple picking adventures, I have an abundance of apples sitting on my fridge. I absolutely love apples so it’s not really an issue, but I figured I should at least try some fun new recipes. Wednesday night I was in a baking mood, but since I was leaving for NYC on Thursday, I didn’t want to bake massive quantities of anything.
Seemed like a good time to play with some single serving recipes!
Single Serving Apple Crisp
- 1 large apple
- 2 tsp flour
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp Earth Balance butter (or regular butter)
- 1 tbsp whole grain oats (I used steel cut)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Peel and chop your apple into small pieces (I did thin slices, halved). Put those into a small oven safe dish. I used a large ramekin. Combine the flour and brown sugar, and then use a fork to cut in the butter until it’s crumbly. Add oats and cinnamon and then pour it over the apples. I only had steel cut oats on hand, but I think regular rolled oats would be even better. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. When I made this, I split it into 2 ramekins, and made 2 mini servings (one for me, one for Lindsay!)
