Maple Apple Crisp
11/8/2011 | Sheryl McGlochlin
This is one of my favorite breakfast or healthy dessert treats! It is SO easy, cheap, healthy and delicious! I generally make a large batch. You can freeze it also!
This is the perfect recipe if you have an abundance of apples.
2 c. oats OR 6 grain rolled mix
1 c. sugar
1 c. freshly ground whole wheat flour or All purpose white flour
1/2 c. butter
2 tbsp molasses
1 pinch of salt
8 - 10 apples, washed, quartered, thinly sliced and seeds removed. Leave the skin on.
1/4 c. Maple Syrup (see recipe below)
Time saver: I use my food processor to slice the apples in seconds or just do this by hand.
In a large bowl, drizzle the maple syrup on sliced apples, then gently stir.
In a separate bowl, mix the topping ingredients together.
Dump the topping over all the apples and gently toss.
Cook 35 min. at 375 degrees
I love this dish hot in a bowl with milk! It's the best!
SO much easier and healthier than making a pie.
Homemade Maple Syrup
1 c sugar or honey
½ c. water
1 tsp Maple Extract Flavoring
Cook water and sugar mixture until it comes to a boil and becomes clear. Do not let it boil.
Take it off the stove and add Maple Extract Flavoring.
Money Saving Tip: Make this syrup in any quantities. I make a large quantity since I use it as a topping for pancakes, crepes, waffles, apple crisp, granola, etc.
Make it in larger quantities by adding 2 parts sugar/honey to 1 part water.
