Inside Out Apple Crisp

Happy Chanuka everyone!  This post is part of a Chanukah Blog Party!  See below for links to the party and info on how to enter the GIVEAWAY!  {Giveaway has now been closed}

While thinking of traditional freezer-friendly Chanuka foods, I also thought how interesting it would be to think outside the box and change things up a bit!  I absolutely love latkes, but I don’t like them with applesauce.  I do however love baked apples, so figured that if I’d throw a party, I’d include these in lieu of the applesauce:


Inside Out Apple Crisp

Adapted from Once a Month Mom and Sweet Remedy


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 medium apples cored
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350
  2. Mix the rolled oats, cinnamon, butter and brown sugar together in a small bowl.
  3. Place the apples in a deep baking pan then fill the apples with the rolled oat and cinnamon mixture (don't fill too much or else apples will burst).
  4. Drizzle maple syrup over the tops of the apples
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until apples are soft

Recipe Notes

Cool the apples until they are room temperature. Individually wrap each apple in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Arrange the wrapped apples in airtight container or freezer storage bag. Label your food! Place in freezer for up to 60 days.

    Love how you call this an inside out apple crisp — what a great presentation.

    I freeze my leftovers, but I am rarely organized enough to make something and freeze it before a party!

  • This looks gorgeous! Love the concept.

    My favorite freezable party food is definitely cookies! They are my specialty and they freeze so well!

  • e.s.

  • trifles!

  • I actually don’t have a favourite frozen food (I really need to get better at freezing food in advance)!

  • Latkes freeze perfectly.

  • rivka

    the best freezable party foods are trifles and cakes!

  • These apples look delicious! I love apple crisp and this is a nice different approach.
    My favourite freezable party food(s) would have to be latkes and cookies.

  • Leah

    I love apple crisp. Sounds like a great idea.

  • I freeze a lot of stuff, but my cookies are favorites, I think. But I do freeze latkes, falafel, and cookies for our yearly party!

    I’ve never tried to freeze an apple. Sounds like a good way to get dessert ready early.

  • Soup! I have a container of mushroom barley soup waiting in my freezer for this Shabbat . I made it with stock from my T-giving turkey. One dish out of the way as I gear up to host 14 for Chanukah this Friday night!

  • That looks great!

  • I love your recipe, the combination of rolled oats and apple is brilliant. I’m always looking for desserts which aren’t too fattening and think I found a winner here, thank you!

  • This recipe looks great and healthy too:)
