Apple-Strawberry Crisp for Two

We have spent a few nights in the Hueco Tanks State Park campground, meaning we get water AND electrical hook-up, which provides a few more cooking options in the RV. We feel pretty special 🙂 I wanted to make a dessert after bouldering the other day and had a craving for a crisp / crumble treat.

We had apples, we had strawberries and we had electricity for our toaster oven – this is looking promising! I was going to use the toaster oven to bake a dessert for the first time ever – this could be challenging!

So, chop two small apples and a few strawberries into small pieces and toss them with a bit of flour, cinnamon and lemon juice. Divide the mixture into two ramekins; don’t worry if the ramekins look really full, the fruit will shrink as it cooks. | Apple crisp in an RV

The topping I used for this crisp was pretty minimal – some oats, cinnamon, chopped walnuts, maple syrup and a bit of butter. The amount just covered the fruit. Next time, I might make a bit more. Pack the crisp topping onto the fruit. | Apple crisp in an RV

If you have access to a full oven – lucky you!!
If you have access to a toaster oven – it’ll do!!

I tried baking the crisps at 350 F for about 15 minutes, realized the topping was browning VERY quickly, so I turned down the oven to 300 F and baked for another 5 minutes. The fruit still had a bit of a bite to it (read: kinda crunchy), so next time I will probably try cooking the apples down in a sauce pan before adding them to the ramekins. If you have an actual oven, I suspect that baking at 325 F for 25 minutes or so, would work just fine.

We served ours warm with a dollop of greek yogurt. This dessert may need a bit of tweaking to meet our RV standards, but that’s all part of the process, and tweaking is always tasty anyway!

For the filling:
  • 2 small apples (like Granny Smith), cored and chopped
  • 2 medium strawberries, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp flour
  • Dash of cinnamon
For the topping:
  • ¼ cup large flake oats
  • ¼ cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp cold, unsalted butter
  1. Directions:
  2. Toss the apples and strawberries with the lemon juice, flour and cinnamon until well coated. Divide into two ramekins.
  3. To make the crisp topping, mix together the oats, walnuts, cinnamon and sea salt. Stir in the maple syrup, then add in the butter and mix until clumpy (note: if you are making this in an RV in +32 C, the butter will probably not be cold, and the mixture will probably not be clumpy. Don't worry, the end result still tastes good!).
  4. Top the fruit mixture with the oat topping and bake at 325 F for about 25 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with a dollop of yogurt or whipped cream.
