This Pomegranate and Apple Crisp is the perfect dessert to make when you have apples to use up. Don’t forget the scoop of ice cream on top!
I’m giving in. I’m breathing fall in. Because what better time than now? When temperatures are dropping to near freezing, and I can’t put on enough sweaters.
Also, all of my clothes are falling apart!! This is the count so far:
First, 3 ripped pants. And not the cool kind of rip. I’m talking about the one right down the derriere area. Sexy, right?
Second, 2 ripped sweaters. Somehow only the armpits got the full effect of the ripping, but I have one sweater which is ripping from the sleeves and the left chest area (somehow..). I haven’t thrown this one out… yet. Buying new shoes has just been the icing to my frosty cold cake. Why do I need new boots? This is why.
Maybe my bad luck is stemming from the fact that I have yet to embrace fall. No pumpkin recipes, no apple recipes…nothing. To me, embracing fall is making something with apples. Something comforting. Something like a warm apple crisp.
I am almost embarrassed to admit that I have never tried apple crisp until a couple of years ago…and even then, I have never made it myself.
Well this is changing right here, right now. I can practically smell the future apple crisps I will be making after this one.

- 3 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 1 medium pomegranate, peeled and seeds separated
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup salted butter, melted
- scoop of vanilla ice cream (optional, but highly recommended)
Preheat the oven to 375˚F. Lightly spray a 7×11 inch baking dish.
In a large bowl, mix together the apples, pomegranate seeds, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
In the same bowl, mix together the oats, flour, and white sugar. Mix in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the fruit.
Bake for 45 minutes, or until the apples are soft. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. To make it extra fancy, serve with a scoop of ice cream.
