Apple Crisp

Ingredients

Filling:

7 to 8 cups chopped apples (peeling is optional)

3 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp vanilla

1 to 1 1/2 tsp powdered stevia leaf or 1/2 tsp powdered stevia extract

2 tbsp whole wheat flour

3 tbsp natural peanut butter (optional)

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

2/3 cup organic apple juice or blend

Topping:

1 cup rolled oats

2/3 cup chopped nuts and seeds

1/4 tsp powdered stevia extract

3/4 tsp stevia concentrate

2 tablespoons oil

Preparation

Preheat the over to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 13″ baking dish.

Place the apples in a large mixing bow. Stir in the lemon juice. Mix the vanilla, stevia leaf or stevia extract, flour, peanut butter (if using), cinnamon, and salt into the apples.

Pour the fruit juice into the bottom of the dish. Spoon in the apple mixture.

Mix the oats, chopped nuts and seeds, stevia extract, and stevia concentrate together in a bowl. Sprinkle and stir in the oil. Spread the topping over the apples so it is evenly distributed.

Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. If the topping gets done before the apples, cover pan with foil the last 15 minutes of baking.

Option: Topping substitute: 1 1/2 cups of granola. Mix 1/2 cup of the granola into the apples, and spread the rest on top. No need to add stevia sweetener or oil from topping recipe above – granola already has sweetener and oil.
