Rosemary Apricot Crisp Ingredients
All you need to make this rosemary apricot crisp are the following simple, healthy ingredients, many of which you likely have in your pantry:
- Fresh apricots
- Fresh rosemary
- Rolled oats
- Almond flour
- Ground cinnamon
- Coconut oil
- Maple syrup

How To Make Apricot Crisp
Start by preheating your oven to 350F. Next, wash and dry about 10 apricots (to get 4 cups of slices).
Slice apricots into 6 pieces each, removing the pit. Add slices to a large bowl.
Toss the apricot slices with cornstarch, maple syrup, and finely chopped rosemary.
To make the toppings, pulse pecans and walnuts into small pieces in a food processor. Alternatively, you can chop them by hand, too.
Mix the chopped nuts with rolled oats, almond flour, ground cinnamon, salt, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
Next, place the apricots into a baking dish (I used this 10-inch round one) and spread into an even layer.
Spread the topping mixture evenly on top of the apricots and gently press down.
Finally, place the baking dish into the oven for 40-45 minutes, until the top becomes slightly browned and the fruit juices start to bubble.
Remove from oven and allow the crisp to cool for about 10 minutes.
