Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.
