To my delight, Gina posted a wonderful recipe for a healthier apple crisp dessert. I wanted to try it badly and fortunately we had friends coming over so I had the perfect opportunity to make it! It was a hit!
Cinnamon Apple Crisp
5 medium apples, peeled and diced
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 lemon, juiced
3 tsp cornstarch
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (not instant!)
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup (half stick) butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine the apples, cinnamon, lemon juice and agave nectar until well coated. Toss this mixture with corn starch and put into a lightly greased glass pie plate. For the topping, combine the rolled oats, WW flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. Spread the topping evenly over the pie plate, making sure that all the apples are covered. Bake, uncovered, until the topping is a golden brown colour and the fruit inside is tender. Depending on your oven, this could be 30-40 minutes.
Serve right away or leave to cool on the kitchen counter. When you are ready to enjoy it, warm it up in the oven for 10 minutes at 150 degrees. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
