The weather is getting cooler. Time to turn on your oven. Why not put an apple crisp in it. I will attempt to describe this in kid terms and then in a recipe if you are interested in how we do it. I am always trying to marry health (vitamins minerals, etc) with good taste (sugar, butter).
I can help you with that mommy. You want the apples where?
For the sake of this story we will call the boy W and the girl P.
W- " Mmm, this topping is good"
P- " So this is how you press it in, see"
W- "mm- topping, i love topping. Any more in there?"
P- "I am pressing it like so. This will then go in the oven and you can have some after dinner."
W- "I think i can get more out. and into my mouth"
P- "oh my yes that is good."
6 apples sliced and tossed with
2 T lemon juice
2 T honey
and cinnamon (however much you like)
Blend together in a food processor
1 cup Oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup nuts (usually we use walnuts)
1/3 cup honey
6 T butter
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp Cinnamon
Press this down on top( as seen above) as evenly as possible. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes.
vegan- use earth balance non dairy margarine
baby under 1- omit the nuts and substitute sugar or agave nectar for the honey.
Happy apple picking.
