When I came across the Molly Katzen's recipe for apple crisp, I pretty much jumped at the chance to make the dessert. It sounded easy enough to make since the ingredients are usually what I have on hand in the kitchen. It is fun to change up, depending what fruit is in season. It lists a recipe for a berry version. I've combined the two and it's tasty!
I tend to make this bad boy when I can share it with friends and family. Or, when the call for sweetened oatmeal and apples cannot be ignored any longer. It is like a good hug, I swear. Warmed by the oven, topped with vanilla ice cream, it is simple and unoffensive.
6-8 Macintosh or Cortland apples
1 1/4 cup of steel-cut oats
2-3 tbsp of ground flax seeds
1 cup of all-purpose unbleached flour
1/2 cup of oil or butter
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of salt
Combine the oil, sugar, flax seeds, flour, oatmeal, salt and cinnamon.
Cool and serve a la mode (Soy Dream vanilla ice cream rocks).
