Apple crisp is an easy, satisfying dessert. But if you don’t watch out, it can be full of fat and calories.
For this version, which I call a crunch, I used about half the butter called for in similar recipes and left out nuts, which are fattening. Although light, it’s still delicious and homey, perfect for serving at this time of year.
Nothing is added to the apples but sugar and cinnamon, so their flavor comes through wonderfully. I like to use tart Granny Smith apples, though Jonathans and Golden Delicious also work well.
Serve this right from the pan or topped with a dollop of nonfat yogurt or frozen yogurt.
