Rice, Crispy Oats, Action!

Trust us when we say you haven’t had an apple crisp quite like this before! This recipe is a tasty, unique alternative to a traditional apple crisp. With mouthfuls of fluffy white rice in a cinnamon and brown sugar sauce, it’s a delicious cross between rice pudding and a classic apple crisp.

This recipe incorporates traditional apple crisp ingredients, including sweet apples, brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Additional tasty components include sweet raisins, crunchy walnuts and uncooked rolled oats.

This recipe gets baked in the oven in a 2-quart baking dish. The rice layer, which can be made with our Minute® Instant White Rice or Minute® Instant Brown Rice, is a tasty base for this dessert, combined with apple pie filling.

Once in the oven, this apple crisp cooks up perfectly in a delightful cinnamon-infused sauce. While the top, a mixture of oats, butter and additional brown sugar, crisps up perfectly. When finished, you’ll have a delicious, bubbling apple crisp, perfect for enjoying with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream.
