This is a seasonal favourite that’s comforting and decidedly delicious … it’s also available as a vegan or non-vegan recipe.
Ingredients (serve 4-6):
7 – 8 Granny Smith apples
¼ cup granulated sugar*
1 tsp ground cinnamon
¾ cup rolled oats
¾ cup all-purpose flour
¾ chopped pecans
½ cup light brown sugar*
⅓ + 1 tbsp butter, melted**
*bone char free or sugar beet derived if you’re following a strict vegan diet
**vegan butter such as Earth Balance, if you need this recipe to be dairy-free
1 small bowl
1 medium bowl
1 large bowl
8 x 8 square glass baking dish
Preheat oven to 375F.
For the Filling:
In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Stir to mix together then set aside.
Peel, core and cut the apples into ¼ inch thick slices. In a large bowl, stir/mix the apples and cinnamon sugar together making sure everything gets covered well.
Pour the apple filling into the glass baking dish and distribute evenly then set aside.
For the Topping:
In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, flour, pecans and light brown sugar. Add in the melted butter and stir until well combined and moistened.
Spoon the topping over the filling and pat down to evenly distribute.
Bake in the oven for 35 minutes until the apples are tender and bubbling. Remove from oven and cover loosely with foil to keep it warm as you let it stand for at least 15 minutes.
Serve with your favourite dairy-free vanilla ice-cream or vegan Cool Whip.
