  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.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

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!
