Easy Peanut Butter Apple Crisp Recipe l

Apple crisp has always been a favorite of mine. I’m not sure what I like more: the sweet, crumbly oat topping or the cinnamon infused apple filling.

Either way the two combine to make a warm, comforting dessert that is both easy to make and super adaptable.

Throughout the years that I’ve made apple crisp, I’ve made variations that were all oats, or were only white sugar or brown sugar. I’ve made some that only were seasoned with cinnamon and a bit or salt and others that were filled with all of the apple pie spices.

While they were all good, I’ve found myself continually coming back to this easy peanut butter apple crisp recipe. That probably doesn’t surprise you since peanut butter is involved!

The peanut butter in the oat topping gives it an added richness and half brown sugar gives a caramel flavor that goes so well with apples.

Of course, it’s even better when you top it with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream!

There is no way on God's green earth that this could not be amazing! Unless you hate apples. Or peanut butter. Or God's green earth. In which case, you are probably a bad person anyway. The peanut butter really pumps it up a level!
