At Little Sprouts we’ve been exploring apples for the last few weeks. Each family brought a couple of apples a while back and we used them for sorting, counting, color recognition, and all kinds of math activities. We also did a taste comparison with the different kind of apples and charted our results. As our apple discovery is winding down, we used the rest of our apples to make a Scrumptious Apple Crisp.
Even though someone recently called me psychotic for letting the kids cut apples, I again gave them butter knives to cut the apples into pieces. No toddlers were harmed in the making of this recipe!
After all the apples were cut up, the kids placed them in our bowl.
Next we mixed sugar and flour with the apples for the filling of the crisp. We use raw sugar in our recipes, that’s why the sugar is brown.
After the apples were coated and poured into the baking dish, we mixed the crumble topping in the same bowl. On a side note, you could add some cinnamon or pie spices to this mix. I do not because I am allergic to cinnamon, even the smell.
For the crumble topping we mixed old fashioned rolled oats, whole wheat flour, and butter together and poured it on top of the fruit mixture.
After we baked our Scrumptious Apple Crisp, we enjoyed it for lunch. It was amazing! Kids LOVE cooking and they LOVE eating things they cooked themselves.
