Homemade Apple Chips are a great snack for hiking, trekking and light weight camping. They are a perfect low effort way to preserve apples to eat later.
One of the many apple dessert variations, apple crisp has a flour base but the the addition of other elements such as oats, nuts and spice.
Originating in America, it is generally recognized as a variation on the English Apple Crumble, which is very similar but only made of flour, butter and sugar.
A lazy camp version of this I simply make a crumble recipe, then stir through a granola or muesli. Very easy and very tasty!
1 cup (130g) all purpose (plain) flour
1/4 cup (55g) salted butter
2 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup oats
2 tablespoons slithered almonds
2 tablespoons desiccated coconut (or shredded coconut)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 apples, Granny Smith work best
2 tablespoons sugar
In a bowl rub the flour and butter together until it has a texture similar to breadcrumbs.
Stir in the brown sugar, oats, almonds, coconut and cinnamon.
Peel and core the apples then thinly slice.
In the dish you plan to cook the crumble in (can vary depending on method of cooking) such as a Dutch oven. Lay out the apples slices evenly.
Sprinkle the topping mixture over evenly. Note when it cooks it will first expand slightly so be aware of overflow, then on cooling the apples soften and shrink, allowing the topping to drop down. If all goes well however the top will remain singular and intact.
