Apple Crisp For The Trail – FBC Style

One of FreezerBagCooking Facebook page readers, Tim, asked about an easy apple crisp of sorts – here you all go! This one is easy to pack and easy to make.

Apple Crisp In A Bag

At home mix up:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup toasted wheat germ
  • 2 Tbsp butter or margarine (Use Earth Balance for non-hydrogenated)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed

Spread on a cookie sheet and bake at 350* until crisp, watch and check every couple minutes to be sure you don’t burn it. Cool and pack in a snack bag.

In a quart freezer bag:

  • ¼ lb. dried chopped apples (or use 2 cups dried chopped cherries for cherry crisp)
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg

FBC method:

Add 1½ cups near boiling water to the apples. Seal well and put in a cozy for 15 minutes. Divide into personal mugs and sprinkle some of the crisp topping over each bowl.

Serves 2 to 4, depending on how much sweets are liked


You can use commercial granola instead for the topping; take 1 cup with you in a snack bag.

Thank you to RebeccaD for the recipe.

  1. Looks Awesome! Does the topping keep well (for up to 5 weeks non-refrigerated?), or would it go funny because of the butter? Thanks!

  2. For long-term, use Ghee (which is shelf stable butter) or also, coconut oil, would work great 🙂
