Easy Healthy Mini Apple Crisps

Easy Healthy Mini Apple Crisps

This recipe makes approximately 6 mini pies (depending on the size of your apple).


  • 1 apple, cut into small pieces (I used a granny smith and I like to keep the skin on, but that is up to you.)
  • 1.5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust (1 crust makes about 10 mini pies)



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a sauce pan combine the apple pieces, lemon juice, water, and cinnamon. Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes (the time will vary depending on the size of your apple pieces, you want them to be soft, but not soggy).

  3. While the apples are cooking roll out your crust and cut it into 10 round pieces. (I used the top of a glass.) You will need to combine all the extra scraps, then roll out (using a rolling pin) the dough in order to make the last couple crusts.

  5. Skip to step 6 if using store bought granola. If using homemade granola top with 1/2-1 tablespoon of paleo granola crunch (uncooked).
  6. If using store bought granola cook your apple pies in the oven before adding cooked granola. Take out of oven a few minutes before they are done cooking, add the granola and finish cooking for 3-5 minutes.

  8. Enjoy! I am not going to lie I like to top mine with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. You do you.

I love a good apple pie, but I hate the high calorie count of most pies. I was determined to create a healthier, but equally delicious recipe and I think I nailed it. Actually, I prefer mine to any unhealthy recipe. Try it and let me know what you think.
