When the month of October hit, so did my cravings for apples! I tried making an apple pie, apple oatmeal muffins, and this apple crisp. The crisp quickly won itself a spot in my "holiday baking favorites" list. (It's not an official list, just kept in my mind! haha... I should write it down!)
I found the recipe online and of course tweaked it just a hair to meet our dietary / allergy needs. You can find the original recipe at GlutenFreeMommy.
- 7 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced (I prefer to do half granny smith and half with a sweeter apple, like gala.)
- A little bit of lemon juice for apples
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cups gluten-free oats
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
In a 9x13 baking dish, layer the sliced apples and toss with lemon juice. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and oats. Cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Add in almonds and mix well. Spread this mixture on top of the apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 40-45 minutes.
*** I've also just recently tried this recipe replacing peaches for the apples. It was great and a hit with our guests! Omit the lemon juice and place four 14.5 oz. cans of drained peaches in bottom of pan and spread streusel topping over them. I also omitted about half of the cinnamon in the mixture as well. Enjoy!
