It’s peak apple season, making it the perfect time to bake healthy apple desserts. Here’s a delicious and easy apple crisp recipe made with the goodness of rolled oats, whole wheat flour, almonds and fresh apples. The apples can be cubed or sliced, depending on your tastes. For more texture and nutrition, use cubed apples with the peel intact. (Choose a cooking apple with a thin skin.) For a more tender apple crisp, peel and slice the apples.
For directions how to make vegan apple crisp see the tip at the bottom of the recipe.
Easy Oatmeal Apple Crisp
6 cups cubed or sliced tart cooking apples
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
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.

Tip: To make vegan apple crisp, use 1/4 cup vegan vegetable oil spread in place of the butter. Another vegan option is to use 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil and 1 tablespoon soymilk in place of the butter.
