Apple Crisp

This recipe if modified from one that I found at http://www.godairyfree.org/.

Filling ingredients:
4 Granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 tbsp corn starch (or potato starch)
2 tsps cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
tiny pinch cloves (about 1/16 teaspoon)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

Topping Ingredients:
4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tsps cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
8 tbsps canola oil
8 tbsps pure maple syrup
1 tsps vanilla
cinnamon/sugar mixture


Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl squeeze lemon juice over sliced apples. Coat apples with cornstarch and spices. Place in baking dish and then drizzle maple syrup over apples. Cover with tin foil and bake for 35 minutes.

Prepare topping. Mix together dry ingredients and then mix in wet ingredients. Mix together well until crumbly.

When apples are done baking, remove from oven and toss, then flatten them evenly with the back of a spatula or wooden spoon. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apple mixture. Then sprinkle cinnamon/sugar over that. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes, until top feels crispy.
