Fall is upon us and with that comes some of my favorite flavors. I love pumpkin as much as the next guy or gal, but it doesn’t define fall for me; apple does. Apple pie, cinnamon rolls with chopped apples, breads, and cupcakes are good and all but I prefer apple crisp. The soft and warm apples are amazing with the crispy, caramelized oats and brown sugar. *drool*
Over the years, Leah has made it based on an old family recipe. Swapping out the butter for Earth Balance made this as vegan as it’s gonna get. It’s not healthy, there is no mistake that this is a dessert but it is oh so good. Here’s what you need.
6 medium/ large apples (Peeled and sliced)
3/4 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup oats
2 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup vegan butter
Preheat oven to 350°
Mix all ingredients except the apples.
Once everything has mixed evenly spread the apples in a 9×9 baking dish and top with the blended mixture.
Cook for 45-60 minutes depending on how done you want it to be. The full hour will be nice and crunchy, just check at 45 minutes to make sure it doesn’t get burnt.
This goes great with a little soy vanilla ice cream, just saying….
