I don’t know about you, but apple crisp is one of our all time favorite desserts. And let’s be honest, we eat it for breakfast too, (it has oats in it so that makes it count as a breakfast item right?)
This is a perfect recipe for potlucks, family dinners, or just as a way to use up apples before they go bad! That is actually how we came up with this recipe. We absolutely hate throwing food away, so we always try to come up with recipes to use up ingredients before they go bad. After getting maybe one too many bushels of apples from the local apple orchard, we realized we had some apples that were on the verge of going bad, so why not make a warm and delicious apple crisp.
This is a recipe that can be made with a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry! Top it with plant based whip cream or plant based vanilla ice cream, and you are all set.
5-6 apples peeled and sliced into ½ inch cubes
Juice from half a lemon
1 Tsp vanilla extract
2 Tsp cinnamon (Split)
¼ Cup maple syrup
¼ Cup vegan butter
⅓ Cup oats
⅓ Cup almond flour
⅓ Cup brown sugar
Pinch of salt
Peel and cut 5-6 apples into ½ cubes.
Mix the apples in a bowl with the lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and 1 tsp of the cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, combine 1 tsp cinnamon with the oats, almond flour, brown sugar, and salt, and mix to combine.
Cut the butter into ½ inch cubes and add to the flour and oat mixture.
Mash with a fork until it forms a pea size crumble.
Spray a baking 9 inch backing dish with cooking spray, and add the apple mixture to the dish.
Next add the crumble mixture to the top.
Back at 375oF for 25-30 minutes or until the top is slightly golden brown.
Serve warm, and top with plant based whip cream or vanilla ice cream for a perfect bite.
