  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place the flour, rolled oats, coconut, 1/4 cup of white sugar, 1/4 cup of light brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and butter into the work bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times to make a mixture that looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in the walnuts.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the apples, 1/4 cup of white sugar, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, tapioca, vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg until well combined. Pour the filling into the prepared pie dish; spread the topping evenly over the filling.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the apple crisp is bubbling and golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes.

I thought this was very good and so did my daughter. We dug into it as soon as it came out of the oven. The tapioca does a nice job thickening it and the walnuts are delightful. I omitted the coconut only because I realized I didn't have any at the time. Thank you for the great recipe.

I made a few tiny changes only to use what I had on hand. I did not have walnuts on hand so I increased the oats to 2/3 cup. Before tossing the apples with the filling ingredients, I tossed them in a little lemon juice and I used two tablespoons cornstarch instead of tapioca. I also added 2 tablespoons melted butter to the filling only to make more of a "filling" when it was combined with the juices of the apples during the baking process. Really, REALLY good. Jazz apples were on sale this week and a GREAT apple in this particular recipe. Crisp and slightly tart with a light sweetness. The smell of this while it was baking was ah-mazing! The one issue I had with this filling is it came out a little dry. When I try this again (and I will try this again), I'd make more of a juicier bottom by making a kind of apple pie filling out of either apple juice and water and the remaining ingredients. It could have been because my ingredients would not fit in a pie pan but I've really not had this happen before. The flavor was good and the sweetness was perfect--it just needs more "stuff" in the actual apple-y part. NOTE: My ingredients were too......much for a 9 inch pie pan. This fit into a 9x13 baking dish just right. 30 minutes at 350 degrees was just right for me.


Love all the flavors in this crisp! Looking for something different from the norm - then this is the crisp for you!
