This instant pot apple crisp is so good! It’s a quick and easy recipe that tastes amazing! You need this recipe in your life.
I decided it was time I convert my favorite recipe to an instant pot recipe. Instant Pot Apple Crisp is great because it doesn’t claim your oven for anything.
It’s easy to make and makes a slightly smaller batch than the oven baked version. Which means it is perfect for my family of 5 – without leftovers.
The best part? It cooks in just 8 minutes! That makes it easy to whip up a batch of instant pot apple crisp for an ordinary Saturday night without much planning head.
Those leftovers always get me in trouble. I am a total leave the fork in the dessert and come back for bites all night kind of a person.
This instant pot dessert just screams fall. As much as I love baking with pumpkin, apple desserts will always be my favorite. I always have apples on hand in fall and now that we’ve moved, we have a giant Granny Smith apple tree in our backyard.
Sadly, it’s not the healthiest tree this year. I’m hoping next year we will have it in better health and won’t have to buy apples for the season.

Using the same bowl, mix together the brown sugar, flour, rolled oats, and salt.

Create a foil sling by folding a 2-foot piece of aluminum foil into thirds lengthwise.
Cover the push pan with a paper towel and a piece of foil. (this is to absorb any access moisture.
