Maple Apple Crisp
There is nothing like the taste of maple syrup, apples, and cinnamon heated together and baked—an American classic the whole family will enjoy. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or by itself. Delicious!
Serves: 8Hands-on: 15 minutesTotal: 45 minutesDifficulty: Easy
- 5 large red apples
- 1⁄2 cup apple juice
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts
- 1⁄4 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1⁄3 cup canola oil
- 2⁄3 cup maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Peel, core, and slice the apples. Place in a 9-by-12-inch baking pan.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the apple juice, lemon juice, 1⁄4 cup maple syrup, and cinnamon; pour over the apples.
- To make the topping, process the oats in a food processor until almost flour consistency. Add the walnuts and salt to the oats; pulse to lightly chop. Pour the mixture into a large bowl.
- In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the vanilla extract, oil, and 2⁄3 cup maple syrup. Pour the liquid mixture over the oats; use a wooden spoon to combine. You may need to use your hands to mix well enough to coat the oats and walnuts.
- When done, spoon the mixture over the top of the apples. Bake 30 minutes, or until apples are tender and topping is a golden brown. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
