Apple Crisp

Tara Wright Breakfast & Brunch, Desserts, Holiday Treats, Recipe 0 Comments

My dad brought me a few bushels of apples from the apple tree that my husband and I were married under at my family farm. After hemming and hawing about what to make I decided on our favorite fall comfort dish—Apple Crisp. The recipe from my childhood which was handed down to us by my mom is delicious but it’s mostly butter and sugar. From my granola making experience I knew I could change things up and make apple crisp quite nutritious and very delicious! At the time of the apple drop­off my husband was at Ft. Gordon doing some training for the National Guard. We drove out to visit him for Thanksgiving and I took the apples with me. A little taste from home if you will. The cabin we stayed at was beautiful and rustic and had these dishes that reminded me of my great­grandma. My ingredients were limited at the cabin. I would have preferred old fashioned oatmeal and included walnuts if I’d had them on hand.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. 2. Slice apples into small slices, ­­removing skin if you prefer.
  3. In a large bowl, sprinkle the apple slices liberally with cinammon, stir and repeat until you have used the 2 TBS of cinnamon. Mix in 1/2 cup raisins with the apple/cinnamon mixture.
  4. Place contents of the bowl into two greased round dishes or one greased 9x13 pan.(I use coconut oil to grease the pans)
  5. In a small mixing bowl I combined 1 cup oatmeal, 1/8 cup hemp seeds and 1/8 cup coconut flakes.
  6. In a glass measuring cup, melt 2 tbs of butter and mix in 1⁄4 cup of honey, 1TBS Molasses and 1⁄2 tsp vanilla­ stirring until the ingredients combine. Note: The molasses adds a flavor akin to using brown sugar. If you dislike the flavor of Molasses simply substitute a TBS of brown sugar instead.
  7. Pour the butter/honey/molasses mixture into the oatmeal and stir until all the ingredients are moist.
  8. Crumble the combined oatmeal mixture over the crisp in your baking dish and cover.
  9. Bake crisp at 350 degrees, covered, for 15 minutes.
  10. Uncover the crisp and continue baking until you can pierce through the apples with a fork. Approximately 30 minutes.
