Moosewood Apple Krisp

A Mollie Katzen Recipe. What makes this stand apart is that it’s not too sweet, and it’s loaded with oats and nuts. The original recipe calls for walnuts and sunflower seeds, but I always use all walnuts because I like the flavor and texture better.


  • 8-10 medium cooking apples
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 c raw oats
  • 1/2 c walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 3/4 c flour
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t allspice
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/3 c honey
  • 1/2 c orange juice


  1. Peel, pare & slice the apples. Drizzle with fresh lemon juice. Spread half of them into a large, oblong pan.
  2. Melt the butter & honey together. Combine with oats, flour, nuts, seeds, salt & spices.
  3. Spread this mixture onto apples in pan. Cover with the remaining apples and the rest of the topping. Pour O.J. over the top.
  4. Bake 40-45 minutes, uncovered at 375. Cover if it crisps too quickly.
