Have you gone apple picking yet? Well, tis the season! You know what else? It’s also still grilling season! What’s my point? Apparently I’m a very seasonal girl because I’m combining both for this second recipe of my Grilling series! That’s right…apple picking and grilling…don’t worry, it will make sense very shortly. But first, did you check out (last week’s recipe)? If not, check it out for an incredible Grilled Kabobs recipe along with some helpful tips for grilling safely. Ok, now that you’re a grilling expert, let’s cut to the chase.

Grilling is so easy, fun, and the clean up is a cinch! In addition, there is so much room for creativity and it is a super healthy way to prepare your food. Even with that said, I’m sure you’re thinking that it seems a bit odd to be grilling apples, right? However, trust me when I tell you that this might become your new favorite dessert! The way that these apples combine with the rest of my chosen ingredients create such a delicious treat that it seems almost impossible to be good for you! But rest assured, being that it’s coming from me, you know that it is!

It’s all here for you and ready to go. Each Alli’s Slim Pickins recipe provides detailed ingredients, nutritional information, and step-by-step instructions on how to prepare each mouth-watering meal! Come on my grilling gurus, let’s make it happen…


1 medium apple, peeled and sliced into bite size pieces
½ tsp lemon juice
2 tsp sliced almonds
¼ cup whole oats
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp brown sugar
¼ scoop Vanilla protein powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp coconut oil
1 large piece heavy-duty aluminum foil (approx 16 x 24 inches)

How to Prepare
1. Preheat the grill to medium-high.
2. Combine apple, lemon juice and almonds in bowl and mix to coat evenly.
3. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients and mix until well blended and crumbly.
4. Lay the aluminum foil on a flat surface and fold in half. Open the foil and scoop the apple mixture into the center of the bottom portion.
5. Spoon the crumb mixture over the top of the apples.
6. Fold the top section of foil over the apple crisp mixture and roll the edges of the package together tightly to seal.
7. Place the foil package on the grill, cover, and cook until for approximately 30 minutes until the apples are tender, and the foil package is puffed.
8. Turn off the grill. Using long tongs, carefully remove the package from the grill and let cool for approximately 5 minutes.
9. Cut open the package carefully and slide onto a plate or bowl. Get it while it’s hot! Yum!! Enjoy!
