Old Fashioned Apple Nut Crisp


My favorite thing about fall is apples. I love cooking with them, eating them, and apple cider. While I know its almost spring, I wanted to make this dessert again.

    • 5 tart apples (McIntosh, Granny Smith, Cortland) peeled and thinly sliced
    • 3 tbs. granulated sugar
    • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
    • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon, divided
    • 2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
    • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
    • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 2 tbs. butter, softened and cut into small pieces
    • 2 tbsp. canola oil
    • 2 tbsp. apple juice concentrate
    • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

1. Preheat the oven to 375. Coat an 8x8 square baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Combine apples with granulated sugar, lemon juice, and 1 tbs. of cinnamon in a large bowl. Toss to combine. Transfer to the baking dish, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
3. While the apples are baking, combine whole-wheat flour, oats, brown sugar and the other tbs. of cinnamon in a medium bowl. Mix to blend. Cut in the chunks of butter until evenly distributed and there are no chunks. Stir in the oil, apple juice and the toss. Combine well. Mixture will be moist and clumpy.
4. Remove the foil from the baking dish and scatter the topping evenly over the apples. Bake uncovered until the topping has browned and the fruit is soft and bubbly, about 30 minutes more. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.

This is absolutely amazing when served warm over vanilla ice cream!
