We visited an apple orchard this week and I went a little overboard . . . .
So far I've made applesauce, the Gingerbread Apple Pie from Vegan with a Vengance (really, really good), and my Apple Crisp recipe:
This quick and easy dessert is very low in sugar and contains lots of fiber.
6 cups peeled, cored, and sliced apples (6 to 8 apples)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon water or apple juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup, brown rice syrup, agave nectar, or honey
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter or oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup, brown rice syrup, agave nectar, or honey
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly oil an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish. Toss apples with lemon juice, apple juice or water, sweetener, and cinnamon. Spread in bottom of pan.
Mix oats, wheat germ, nuts, spices, and salt in food processor with metal blade or by hand. Heat butter or oil and mix with sweetener until smooth. Add to oat mixture and stir until completely combined. Cover apples with topping. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Serve with your choice of topping (page xxx).
Makes 9 servings
I feel like doing some more experimenting . . . Anyone have some good apple recipes to share?
