  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 5 apples, peeled and cored any type
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup water

Crisp topping

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups oats


  • Add butter to the bottom of Instant Pot and spread around so it covers the pot. Add in apples, pouring sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and water overtop.
  • In a large bowl, melt butter, then toss with flour and sugar. Stir in oats, then add to layer of apples in the Instant Pot.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal. Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then pressure cook for 1 minute.
  • The Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure, then notify you it's done by beeping. Press the Cancel button then do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Serve apple crisp with whipped cream or ice cream and enjoy! If you want to make the topping crispy, you can broil each serving for 1-2 minutes before enjoying.
