Ingredients for Making Apple Crisp in the Ninja Foodi
- Butter: I recommend always using unsalted butter in baking. Because salt levels can vary widely in salted butter, this is the easiest way to control the salt.
- Apples: Granny Smith Apples are my favorite for apple crisps, but you can use any type of apples you like. I prefer to peel and slice my apples, but you can certainly buy pre-sliced apples to make things easier.
- Lemon Juice: A little lemon juice helps keep the apples from browning as they cook.
- Sugar: Use granulated sugar in this recipe.
- Oats: Rolled oats are the traditional choice for apple crisp toppings. I don’t recommend using quick oats for the streusel topping because the texture of the topping for your Ninja Foodi apple crumble will be too soft.
- Flour: All-purpose flour is what I always use in my crisp toppings, but you could also use whole wheat flour or a gluten-free flour blend.
- Brown Sugar: Light brown sugar is my preference in this recipe, but you can use dark brown sugar if that is what you have on hand.
- Cinnamon: Be sure to use a good quality ground cinnamon.
- Salt: I like to use sea salt in this recipe, but you can use any type of salt you like.
- Butter: Again, I recommend using unsalted butter in this recipe. The topping will be easier to mix if the butter is cold, so be sure to chill it before beginning.
Tips & Tricks
- Peel and slice the apples ahead of time: One of the most time-consuming parts of this Ninja Foodi apple crumble recipe is peeling and slicing the apples. If you are short on time, you can do this part ahead of time and store the apples in a bowl of cold water with a little lemon juice until you are ready to use them.
- Don’t overmix the topping: Be careful not to overmix the topping ingredients. You want there to be some chunks of butter remaining for a nice, crisp texture.
- Serve with ice cream and caramel sauce: Serve this Ninja Foodi Apple Crisp warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce. Yum!
