|Recipe Name||Stovetop Apple Crisp|
|Recipe Ingredients||For the Topping: 2 Tablespoons butter or vegan butter like Earth Balance 2 packed Tablespoons brown sugar or coconut sugar 1-1/2 Tablespoons maple syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon pinch of salt scant 3/4 cup certified gluten-free old fashioned oats 1/4 cup sliced almonds For the Apples: 2 Tablespoons butter or vegan butter like Earth Balance 1 packed Tablespoon brown sugar or coconut sugar 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 2 medium-sized tart apples, peeled then cut into bite-sized pieces (about 2 cups) Ice cream or whipped cream for topping (optional)|
For the Topping: Add the butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt to a medium-sized saute pan over medium heat then stir until melted and bubbly. Add oats and almonds then cook, stirring often, especially near the end, until mixture is very fragrant and slightly toasted, 4-5 minutes. Scrape onto a silpat or parchment paper (could probably just use a plate too,) then set aside to cool.
For the Apples: Add butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon to the same skillet then stir until melted and bubbly. Add apples then turn heat down slightly and saute for 2 minutes. Cover skillet with a lid then saute, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender but still have a little bit of a bite, 3-5 more minutes.
Scoop apples into bowls then top with crisp topping and serve with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
