Crust-less Apple Crisp Recipe {from scratch with love}

There are a few things in this world that I feel confident enough to brag about. This recipe is one of those things; with only 6 ingredients and a few short steps, anyone can make this family favorite!

My mama usually comes to visit us on Mondays, and if she had the choice, she would eat my meatloaf and apple crisp every. single. Monday!

I’m not a pie person. I’m also not a cooked apple person. Heck, I’m not even a dessert person, but THIS, I will leave plenty of room, because the combination of a crispy struessel topping and sweet melt-in-your-mouth apple filling is addicting to the taste buds and keeps you coming back for more.

You will thank me for this one!
