Clean Apple Crisp

Oh, ain't it fall, though? Here's the perfect evening dessert for the season, shamelessly stolen from someone else's blog.

Easy Oatmeal Apple Crisp
Apple Filling:
6 cups cubed or sliced tart cooking apples
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Crisp Topping:
3/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar or sucanat
1/4 cup chopped almonds or pecans
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup butter, melted

For apple filling, in large bowl combine apples and maple syrup. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; stir to coat. Place apple mixture in 2-quart square baking dish.

For topping, in medium bowl combine oats, flour, brown sugar, almonds, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon and ginger. Add melted butter; stir until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over apples.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until apples are tender and topping is browned. Serve warm or cooled.

Makes 6 servings

You can make it vegan, too. But somehow I don't think that vegan vegetable oil spread is going to be as delicious as butter.
