Apple Crisp Bites are a delightful, bite-sized treat perfect for a quick dessert or snack. They capture all the delicious flavors of a traditional apple crisp but in a convenient, individual portion. Here’s a recipe to make them:


For the Apple Filling:
– 4 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced
– 1/4 cup granulated sugar
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
– 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

For the Crisp Topping:
– 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
– 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

For Assembly:
– Mini muffin tin
– Cooking spray


1. Preheat the Oven:
– Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Apply cooking spray to a mini muffin pan to grease it.

2. Prepare the Apple Filling:
– In a large bowl, combine the diced apples, granulated sugar, lemon juice, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and flour. Until the apples are coated evenly, thoroughly mix. Set aside.

3. Prepare the Crisp Topping:
– In another bowl, mix the oats, flour, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and salt. After adding the melted butter, toss the mixture until it crumbles.

4. Assemble the Apple Crisp Bites:
– Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the apple mixture into each mini muffin cup. Press down slightly to pack the apples in.
– Sprinkle the crisp topping evenly over the apples in each cup, pressing down gently to adhere the topping to the apples.

5. Bake:
– Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender.

6. Cool and Serve:
– Allow the apple crisp bites to cool in the muffin tin for about 10 minutes. Then, gently remove them using a small knife or spoon.
– Serve warm, optionally with a dollop of whipped cream or a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.


Apple Variety: You can use any variety of apple you prefer. Granny Smith apples add a nice tartness, while Fuji or Honeycrisp apples are sweeter.
Topping Variations: For a nutty twist, add some chopped pecans or walnuts to the crisp topping mixture.
Make Ahead: These bites can be made ahead of time and reheated in the oven before serving.
