Cinnamon Apple Crisp
Filling ingredients:
  • 4 pounds (about 8) apples, peeled, cored, quartered and cut in ¼ inch slices
  • juice of ½ a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (corn or potato starch would be an ok substitution)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon allspice
  • tiny pinch cloves (about 1/16 teaspoon)
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
Topping Ingredients:
  • 1½ cups rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoonspure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl squeeze lemon juice over sliced apples. Add the arrow root and spices making sure all apples are coated.
  3. Move apple mixture to the baking dish and drizzle the maple syrup over it.
  4. Cover with tin foil and bake for 35 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile prepare the topping. Sift dry ingredients together, and in a seperate bowl, mix wet ingredients well. Fold wet into dry mixing with a fork as you go along, until well coated and crumbly. When apples are done baking, remove from oven and toss, then flatten them evenly with the back of a spatula or wooden spoon.
  6. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apple mixture and bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes, until top feels crispy.
  7. Serve warm with vanilla dairy-free ice cream (coconut or rice-based for soy-free).
