**DISCLAIMER : im soo sorry about the terrible picture quality, i still do not own a digital camera so my phone is the only way i have of documenting...
so, when my honey got sick a couple of weeks ago, I had to find easy recipes that he would eat and being that apples are his favorite, a hot apple crisp was just what the doctor ordered! here is a new, revised version of a recipe (i think!) i've posted before...
VEGAN APPLE CRISP
ingredients: oats, cinnamon, sea salt, vanilla extract, corn starch, apples, agave and/or honey, earth balance
(forgot to photgraph earth balace originally...)
first, set oven to 350
next, peel, core and slice apples
next, put apple slices, a dash of sea salt, cinnamon, a splash of vanilla, enough agave and/or honey to sweeten and a tbsp of cornstarch in a saucepan, stir until coated and let simmer over low heat covered. optional: add about a tbsp of lemon juice
while the apples sweeten on the stove, get a food processor (a blender *might* work too...) and put a generous amount of oats, cinnamon and a dash of sea salt. process until a fine flour is formed.
next, add small bits of earth balance and process again until oat flour becomes the consistency of wet sand. next, add more oats and pulse just to combine them to the mix.
now, back to your apples, by this time, the "juice" will have thickened and expanded
now you are ready to assemble your masterpiece! pour apples into pyrex dish
pour part of your oat mixture to coat top, then add more bits of earth balance, a swirl of agave, and more oat mixture
cover with foil and bake @ 350 for 10-15 minutes, checking periodically. after 10 minutes are up, take foil off and let bake uncovered for remainder of time, checking often. you just want it to turn a golden brown color on top, but not burn! =)
...and there you have it! again, sorry for the bad picture quality...one ofthese days, i might just get a digital camera...
