Maple Apple Crisp

What’s a girl to do the week between the end of final exams and graduation?

I’ll give you a hint…it has nothing to do with packing ;)

Last night my sweet tooth was screaming for some attention. So after dinner, I went on a mission to calm it down. This week I’ve been trying to eat my way through my pantry so I do not have to pack up so much food  when I move out this weekend.

So when I found my last 5 apples just hanging out in the fruit basket, I knew they were just begging to be baked. It’s pretty simple to turn apples into a healthy, late night dessert!

Maple Apple Crisp

  • 4-5 apples (mine were a mix of pink ladies and fuji)
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. apple pie spice
  • 2-3 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and/or apple pie spice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Butter or Margarine (I used EarthBalance butter spread)

Preheat oven 325* F. Core and thinly slice apples. Combine apples slices with cinnamon, apple pie spice, maple syrup and lemon juice. Pour apple mixture into an 11 x 7 pan. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients and mix until crumbly. Top the apples with the oat crumbles. Bake 30-35 minutes. Enjoy!

*Makes 9 servings: only 137 calories per serving!

baked

Grab a nice big bowl while it’s still warm from the oven and top with a drizzle of more maple or add some vanilla greek yogurt for a creamy topping. It’s difficult not to have seconds…or thirds… :)

One of the downsides to graduations: at some point, I have to be productive and pack.

An upside: I am going to go make a bowl of oatmeal this morning, and top it with more apple crisp :) YUM!

 

Have a wonderful Tuesday!!
