Treat yourself with this delicious low calorie apple crisp. Enjoy it for dessert or breakfast you will love it.
Ingredients for apple mixture:
6 medium-sized apples (about 5 cups sliced apples, I used a mixture of Granny Smith and Jonathan apples)
1/4 cup Stevia or Splenda but Stevia is said to be healthier
Ingredients for crumb topping:
1/2 cup rolled oats
6 T almond flour or almond meal
6 T Splenda or Stevia In the Raw Granulated
2 T olive oil
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional, next time I'm not sure I would add the nuts)
If desired, use a food processor to process the rolled oats about 2-3 minutes, until they're a finer grind. (This is optional.) Use food processor to mix almond flour and Splenda or Stevia into the oats mixture, or put oats in bowl and mix with a spoon. (If you're adding nuts, measure 1/3 cup walnuts or pecans, then chop coarsely with chef's knife and add to the mixture.) Make a well in the center, then pour olive oil and vanilla into the well. Wash hands if needed, then use your fingers to blend the oil and vanilla into the oat mixture.
Peel apples, cut out cores, and thinly slice. (I used an apple corer, then peeled the slices and cut each one in half.) Put apple slices in a bowl, sprinkle Splenda or Stevia and cinnamon over apples, then stir until all the apples are well coated with the Splenda and cinnamon.
Put apples in baking dish and top with the crumb topping, spreading it out so the surface of apples is completely covered with the crumb mixture. Bake 45-50 minutes, until the topping is slightly browned and apples are cooked through and slightly bubbling. Serve hot or cold. This will keep in the fridge for a few days, but it probably won't last that long.
