This prep ahead healthy baked breakfast apple crisp is perfect for busy mornings. As a bonus, it is packed with nourishing foods like apple, chia, and Activia Chia Probiotic Yogurt.




  • 5 large apples (approx 2.5lbs), cut into bite size chunks
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (or 1/2 of a lemon)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinammon


  • 2 cups quick or rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (not melted, leave firm!)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Activia Chia Probiotic Yogurt


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper and apple pieces, lemon juice, chia seeds, and cinnamon right into the pan. Toss to coat evenly.
  3.  In a medium size mixing bowl, combine oats, almond flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, and salt. Use the back of a fork or your hands to mash the coconut oil into the mixture until it is evenly distributed and forms small clumps. Add mixture to apples and spread out evenly.
  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until apples are soft and bubbling and crisp is nice and golden!
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes before digging in, or let it cool completely and store in the fridge to be enjoyed for easy breakfasts!
  6. To serve, top with yogurt and enjoy!


  • Sweetness: The apple crisp itself if very lightly sweetened. The yogurt adds a nice touch of sweetness but if you like it a bit sweeter, add 1-2 Tbsp maple syrup to the topping ingredients before mixing, or add an additional 1-2 Tbsp to the filling. 
  • Oats: use quick oats or rolled oats, not steel cut oats
  • Almond flour: can be subbed for regular flour
  • Coconut oil: can be replaced with butter or vegan butter
  • Maple syrup: can replace sugar 
  • If you want to be extra, add some shredded coconut or chopped nuts to the crumble topping before baking!
