Easy Instant Pot Apple Crisp is made in minutes! Caramelized apples with a sweet, crisp topping is the perfect fall dessert recipe!


For the apples:

  • 6 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cubed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup water

For the crisp topping:

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon


  1. Peel and cube apples into large chunks or slices. Combine with cinnamon, nutmeg, almond extract and brown sugar in the Instant Pot. Add water. Stir until combined.
  2. Make the topping in a bowl by combining melted butter with oats, flour, brown sugar, kosher salt, and cinnamon. Sprinkle on TOP of the apples, but do not stir.
  3. Lock the lid in place and select HIGH PRESSURE for a cook time of 3 minutes. When done cooking, do a quick release.
  4. Serve warm with ice cream and caramel sauce!


  • In the instant pot, apples cook very quickly. To prevent making applesauce, chop your apples into large chunks or slices. If you want your apples firmer, cook for only 1 minute, for much softer apples cook up to 5 minutes.
  • Want the crispy oat topping that doesn't happen in an Instant pot? Spoon Apple Crisp into oven safe bowls and broil for 1-2 minutes.
  • Leftovers are delicious. Warm in microwave for one minutes and enjoy!
  • I prepared today's recipe in a 6qt Instant Pot. Prep time does not include the time it takes the Instant Pot to come to pressure.
