Recipe Ingredients

Apples- Red apples are the basis of this delicious recipe. Choose at least 4 red and fresh medium-sized apples such as Gala, Honeycrisp, or Fuji and peel off the outer layers of each one of them.

Melted Butter- is an equally welcome ingredient in the instant pot apple crisp. Many recopies need stacks of creaming sugar into soft butter however here in this recipe we have found that melted butter works better.

Oat - is an incredibly nutritious food packed with important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Crashed nuts contribute an extra amount of sweetness to it and make it even more dessert. Besides its flavor value, slashed nuts also contribute a high caloric ratio of fats and proteins. You can replace Oats with grains but they are not as recommended since oats contain more nutrients and are high in fiber and proteins as compared to grains.

Vanilla Extract - gives supplemental sweetness to the Instant Pot apple crisp recipe. The well-flavored vanilla extract results in baked products that become soft and moister.

Cinnamon - has been revered through the centuries for its sweet-hot flavor, and its strong scent. 2 teaspoons of the Cinnamon powder will not only add fragrance to this recipe but will also fortify its delicious taste without masking the original flavor. If this is one of your favorite ingredients, I would encourage you to check my Instant Pot Cinnamon Rolls recipe for sure.

  1. Would it be a mistake to cover the pan with foil prior to starting the pressure? Otherwise, the oats will not be crisp. Am I right?

    1. Whether you cover the pan or not, the oats will not be super crisp, due to the moist cooking environment that the Instant Pot creates. If you like the crisp the top more after cooking, you can transfer to the oven, or get a compatible Crisp Lid.

  2. Do I have to peel the apples, the picture shows that the apples were not peeled. I buy only organic to avoid having to peel fruit & veggies, just wash them before eating them. The skin of an apple holds lots of nutrients as most skins do. BTW thanks for all the education on the instant pot & wonderful recipes.

    1. Nope, you don't have to peel the apples especially if they're organic. It's a personal preference-- I like the taste and texture of peeled apples but you're right, the skin does add nutrients and a nice color to it too. And thanks, I'm glad you like the recipes 🙂

  3. I love apple crisp and as soon as the Cortlands are available, I'll try this.
    I don't quite see where to ask this question but with the air fryer lid, how do I rewarm garlic bread?? A microwave always hardens breads into a rock.

  4. I'm not sure if I made an error in the recipe (as it seems to have quite a few mistakes)... But this did not turn out well at all. It did not look good, I was hoping the taste would save it... It did not.

  5. I’m assuming the 1 cup of Nutmeg is supposed to be oats?? I definitely was half asleep and added half a cup of nutmeg ‍♀️‍♀️ My whole soul... I was able to absorb quite a bit of it with a went paper towel don’t bake at 3 am. Not a wise choice.
