    Great recipe and easy to make. Thanks Eleanor. I marked it down one star because I can't imagine an apple recipe without cinnamon, which I added (a couple of teaspoons). I also added fresh ground cloves and doubled the oats as some have suggested. Works well with half Splenda and half brown sugar, too. I've also added a few cranberries for color and taste sometimes. Always to rave reviews.  -  14 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a really good crisp. Granny Smith's worked well for me. I doubled the amount of rolled oats since my boys like that part the best and it was just great!!  -  18 Feb 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good. I doubled the oatmeal and used half whole wheat flour.  -  05 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
