Healthy Warm Apple Crisp Recipe

I got this out of The Get With the Program! Guide to Good Eating by Bob Greene (Oprah’s trainer).  I tried it out today, even though technically it’s a good dessert to make in the fall and winter months.  It’s OUTSTANDING!!  Granted, you still need to watch your portion size, because this does have a little butter, sugar, and flour in it.  It is a treat to eat in extreme moderation.  It serves 4, so you may want to double or triple it if you plan to serve it for a dinner party or something.

 Nonfat cooking spray

2 cups peeled, cored and thinly sliced apples, such as Granny Smiths

2 tbsp sugar, or to taste

1/4 cup apple juice

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tsp cornstarch

1 tsp ground cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

oat topping ingredients:

1/2 cup walnuts or almonds, finely chopped

1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp all-purpose flour

2 tbsp softened unsalted butter

Preheat the oven to 350.  Coat an 8-inch square shallow baking dish with cooking spray.  In a large bowl, toss together the apples, sugar, apple juice, lemon juice, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined.  Set aside.

Make the oatmeal topping:  In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle, gently combine the walnuts or almonds, oats, brown sugar, flour, and butter at low speed. 

Place the apple mixture in the dish.  Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the apples are cooked through, the juices are bubbling, and the topping is browned.  Serve, hot, warm, or at room temperature.
