    6 Servings

Ingredients

For the Topping:
  • 1 1/4 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup Almonds, ground
  • 3/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • pinch of Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/3 cup Pure Maple Syrup
For the Filling:
  • 5 medium Apples, cored and diced
  • 1 cup Fresh Cranberries, halved
  • 2 tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 tablespoon Water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • pinch of Ground Nutmeg

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8 x 8 inch square baking dish with coconut oil.
Make the Topping:
  1. Stir the oats, ground almonds, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together in a medium bowl. 
  2. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup and stir until crumbs form. If your texture is off (this can be due to numerous reasons - age of the nuts, what kind of oats you have etc), sprinkle a bit more oats if it seems too sticky or a bit more coconut oil if it feels dry. 
  3. Cover and refrigerate.
Make the Filling:
  1. Mix all ingredients for the filling together very well. You can use a bowl, but I usually just do this right in the baking dish to avoid more bowls to wash. Clever, right? Either way, spread the filling in your prepared dish.
Assemble:
  1. Sprinkle the chilled topping evenly over the filling. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the filling is bubbly and the apples are cooked. If the topping browns too quickly, cover loosely with aluminium foil about halfway through.
Serve:
  1. Once you take the crisp out of the oven, dig a little hole as an air vent on either side. This will help the filling to thicken while you let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Serve warm. We like it topped with coconut or sheep’s milk yogurt, but I bet ice cream works, too ;)
