Apples are literally falling from the sky here in Colorado right now. I have never seen so many apples and apple trees everywhere! So what’s a person to do? Of course, you make apple crisp! I love this stuff–it’s better than apple pie and so much easier! And it’s gluten free, although not Paleo this way, but you can make it Paleo.
6 fresh crisp tart apples, sliced. You can choose to remove skin or leave it on–I like the extra taste and fiber of the skin!
2 or so tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar or maple syrup
1/4 cup butter
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Core and slice apples in thin slices. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon. Load into a greased baking dish with sides (I used an 8×8 brownie pan).
In food processor, or with a large fork, mix oats, sugar or syrup, butter, salt and cinnamon. Process till just crumbly, don’t overprocess!
Add crumb topping to apples, covering as completely as possible. Place in hot oven and bake 30-35 minutes till apples are soft and cooked through and crumb topping is golden brown. Enjoy! Serves four.
