NUTTY APPLE CRISP

This has to be one of my favorite desserts during apple season! The wonderful aroma of apples and cinnamon cooking is so comforting and delicious. This recipe is healthier than apple pie because there’s only one crust and even that is healthier with the oats and nuts. I’ve also made this without the brown sugar to reduce the sugar further, but either way, enjoy guilt-free!

Filling:                                                                       Topping:

6 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced              1 cup quick-cooking oats

3 Tablespoons orange juice                                   1 cup all-purpose flour

3 Tablespoons water                                              1 cup packed brown sugar

3 Tablespoons brown sugar                                   ¼ teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons all-purpose flour                                ¼ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon cinnamon                                            1 teaspoon cinnamon

                                                                                1 cup walnuts, chopped

                                                                                ½ cup butter, melted

 Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350*F.

Place apples in a 9 X 13-inch pan.
