Single-Serve Apple Crisp | fall recipe

YO.  You guys. It is I!!! The blogger who has been gone for the past few weeks.  OH MY.  THIS IS REAL.  I am here.  BACK.  Yes.  It feels so good to back behind the keyboard typing away.

So... what exactly have I been doing in the time where I did not post here? Wonderful question.  Do I have a answer? No, not really.  Basically I've been swimming in school and homework (trying to get those 100%'s is...well, trying), and also I've kind of-ish been plotting/planning for NaNo.  I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING, GUYS. This is the first time I'm ever trying to do it, and even though I'm not really doing it the "official" way (I'm going to try to do 1k a day!!), it still looks daunting and scary and awful and terrible and I'm not sure how November's going to be.  ASDKF.

Also, question, how on earth is it November already?
There's been so much happening in the real life right now that it's pretty crazy, but I'm just trying to keep the focus straight.  IT'S HARD.
BUT IN OTHER NEWS.
I have a post for you guys today on -- FOOD.  Right. I feel like I just did a blog post on a recipe (like..um, Mint Chip Nice Cream, anyone?) but that was WAYYY back in the summer.  (Two months ago but who's counting??) Today we will be making lovely APPLE CRISP.  For fall of course.  But let me just tell you, I've been wanting to do this post since LAST YEAR.  November 2015 I had a brilliant idea to post a recipe on this apple crisp that I make so, so often.  Buuuut obviously last year I did not, therefore, it is here this year.
About this recipe? Basically, in a nutshell, it's a single-serve (kind of....I usually don't finish it in one sitting, BUT MAYBE YOU WILL! Although I definitely wouldn't call it a double-serving.) apple crisp made in a cute little ramekin (such a fun word) and filled with warm, yummy apples and a sweet, delicious topping.  Add ice cream and BAM you have the ultimate fall dessert.  Or you can add milk to it like I usually do (I tried almond milk once and it gave it this nutty flavor.  SO GOOD.) and eat it for breakfast! 
SINGLE SERVE APPLE CRISP

INGREDIENTS:
1-2 apples (roughly 1 cup chopped)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
dash salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar (Coconut palm or whole cane will work too.  I've tried both before.)
1 tablespoon white sugar (I used xylitol and it worked fine.)
1/4 c. oatmeal
2 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons oil (or butter)

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Chop the apples into small pieces and fill a small ramekin about 3/4 of the way full with the apples.  In a separate bowl, mix the flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, salt, and sugar until well combined.  Then pour the oil over the mixture and combine till it is thoroughly moistened and forms a crumble.  Pile the crumble on top of the apples and use your fingers to spread it on top.  There's no need to pack it down too much! Bake for 35 minutes and afterwards at five minute intervals or until the apples are bubbling underneath and the top is nice and golden.  Let it rest for 10 minutes and then serve! (Make sure you eat it with ice cream because that is bliss.)
Alright, that's a wrap for today! I have some more blog posts in mind, and I think I've got past my blogger's block.  THANKFULLY.  Also, I said this last time and I'm going to say it again I HATE THE LAYOUT OF RECIPE POSTS.  ughhhhh.  I had to remake the apple crisp twice because the pictures didn't turn out right the first time (that's why some of the pictures look different than the others), and then the LAYOUT.  Oh. my. goodness.  Does anyone know how to avoid a space between the pictures? In my dashboard it shows that there are no spaces between the pictures but in the actual post there's like this huge gaping space.  If you're like an amazing technical whiz DO YOU HAVE ADVICE FOR ME? :) It is honestly the most frustrating thing EVER.  AGH. 

Anyway, I  still really wanted to do this post because...well...apple crisp and fall.
Hahaha, so tell me about you! What's been going on in your life? Are you going to make this apple crisp? (UM like YOU SHOULD.  It's so good and easy and perfection in a ramekin.  Have you figured out I love that word yet? ;) How's school been going? OH are you doing NaNo? Any advice for a newbie? Are you excited?

You guys stay safe and have an amazing day xx

    1. YAY I HOPE YOU TRY IT. haha, yeah, i'm not saying that this is the BEST apple crisp ever but it's single serve. SO. THANK YOU!

  3. That look delicious! I like the single serve (in a ramekin) idea too. Normally when I make apple crumble I precook the apple, which is annoying. But you don't even have to precook the apple for this, so that makes it even better..

    And good on you for doing NaNo! I've never done it, so I have no advice.. just admiration. :)

    1. HAHAH YES! I just love that word. HMMM I've never precooked apples before so I'm not sure what the difference would be but these are soft at the end so...

      aww you are so kind, Jessica :) I hope and pray it won't just be a disaster ^_^

  12. Okay, so I tried a little and MMMMMMM that is good stuff. I think it was probably a lot more liquidy (not crisp) than yours, but still tasted so good!
