This Apple Crisp in a Jar is one of my very favorite recipes to make, and perfect for gift giving! Or, you could make them all for yourself–don’t feel bad if you do that. Apples are healthy, right? ;)
I made a few of the jars gluten free, but I truly think they taste the exact same! You could make all of them gluten free and not compromise the taste.
Apple Crisp In A Jar Recipe
Ingredients for Apple Crisp in a Jar
- apples (I used red delicious, but I also love baking with Granny Smith)
- rolled oats (or *gluten free oats)
- brown sugar
- flour (or *Pamela’s baking mix)
- canning jars (makes enough for about 4)
*As a rule, oats are gluten free, but the areas in which they are grown may have been previously occupied by wheat. It’s safest to use gluten free oats if you have a wheat allergy.
And quickly, have I told you about the amazing Pamela’s Baking Mix? Since I stopped eating gluten, Pamela’s makes it possible for me to enjoy baked goods like pancakes, apple crisp, and breads with my family or company when they come. My kids can’t taste the difference when I use Pamela’s in pancakes, and I haven’t had one complaint about my pumpkin bread that I have made with it!
Moving on… :)
Directions for Apple Crisp in a Jar
1.Wash the apples and remove the skin. Then chop them into bite-sized pieces.
2. Add the sugar and stir well. Set the apples aside.
3.Combine oats, baking mix or flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and slowly add in soft butter. Trust me on this one – don’t melt the butter or try to add in cold butter. It just doesn’t work well.
4. Layer oats mixture, another layer of apples, and more oats on top. Fill the jar as much as you can because you’ll be surprised at how much it sinks during baking, making you think that the recipients will rename your gift “Half of an Apple Crisp in a Jar.”
5. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes. I just watched for browning, then pulled them out.
6. Viola! Apple Crisp in a Jar. I refrigerated these for a night, and then put them and some mini containers of vanilla ice cream (to fill the other half of the jar that had settled) into a big cooler bag and brought them to the school for the boys’ teachers.

Yum! Love this idea – apple crisp to go. Would be fun to walk around eating these on Halloween night. Off to look for jars…

Yum, I’ll be making these as we hand out candy to our little visitors, carve more pumkins, and enjoy being outside for the evening. : ) Another idea I ran across awhile ago involved growing herbs that would go on a pizza (oregano, basil… I have to find the idea in my binder) then you get a pizza box from you local pizza joint, cut out holes to place your planted herbs in and send a jar of ready to mix pizza dough. A korny idea that comes to mind with this would be sayings like: you’re a “cut” above the rest. But I’ll find the idea I’m thinking of and send you more details. : )
Oh my goodness, those sound amazing!
First, LOVE the jars. Where’d you get them?
Second, Golden Delicious are my fav kind of apples.
Third, can I come to your house and just sit by your counter and drool?
Last, I need a vacation… can ya tell?
I love food in jars!! This looks so good and so cute! I recently made apple caramel trifles… in the teeny little half pint jars for a ladies event.
A few years ago I’d have to pay someone for this infortaimon.
