8 medium tart green apples
¾ cup raisins (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
Juice of 1 lemon
Water or apple juice
1 ½ cups regular rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
½ cup whole wheat flour (whole wheat pastry flour also works)
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup butter (or butter substitute)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
• Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 9” x 13” baking dish.
• Slice the apples, mix with lemon juice, cinnamon, flour, and raisins. Put them in the baking dish and add enough water or juice to cover the bottom of the pan.
• Mix the topping in a bowl; press on top of the apples. Bake for 25 minutes or until the apples are soft. Serve plain, or with ice cream or whipped cream.
