Apple Crisp

I love apple pie, but if you want a quick apple fix, and don't want to take the time to make crust and all that, here is a great alternative. It is so yummy!

I used Gala apples this time, because it was all I had on hand, but Granny Smith I'm sure would be delicious for a tart/sweet combo.

Apple Crisp

Adapted from
Serves 6-8

4 cups apples, sliced or cubed
1/3 cup sugar (or honey sucanat)
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Crumb topping:
3/4 cup brown sugar (or honey sucanat)
3/4 cup flour (or 3 oz Soft White wheat flour)
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup nuts, chopped (optional)

Slice or cube apples and toss with lemon juice. Set aside.

In a bowl mix together the sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Pour over apples and stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour into greased 8x8 baking dish.

Mix together topping ingredients. Sprinkle over apples.

Bake at 350ºF for 1 hour, or until golden brown and bubbling. Enjoy!
