Serves 4- 6 people. * adapted from Whole Foods Market FILLING: • 10 apples , such as Fuji or Gala, chopped in small even sized chunks • 1/2 cup dried organic raisins (or cranberries) • 1 T. brown sugar • Zest from 1 lemon • 2 T. lemon water TOPPING: • 2 cups rolled oats • 2/3 cup ground almond meal • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped • 2 T. flaxseed meal • 1 T. ground cinnamon • 3 T. olive oil/3 T. butter • 4 T. honey
Preheat oven to 375°F.
I peeled my apples and chopped them in even sized chunks. I put them in a bowl of cold water with approximately 2 T. lemon juice to prevent them from browning. After they were all cut, I spread the apples and cranberries or raisins in a lightly oiled 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar, lemon zest and 2 T. of the lemon water.
Combine remaining ingredients and press over apple mixture.
Cover tightly with a lightly oiled sheet of foil and bake until apples are just tender, about 45 minutes. Uncover and cook until golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes longer. Scoop into bowls and serve. This is intended for breakfast, so the topping really does resemble a granola like crumble and the apples are soft and not too sweet!
