Maple Apple Crisp

Use your favourite baking apples for this simple and satisfying apple crisp sweetened with maple syrup. 

Ingredients
10 apples (we used Cortland, McIntosh and Honeycrisp)
2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
4 tbsp coconut oil 
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup of nuts (optional; walnuts and pecans work great)
dash salt

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Slice apples (we like ours with the peel) and toss in a large bowl with 1/4 cup maple syrup, 1 tsp. cinnamon, nutmeg, nuts (if using) and a dash of salt. Spoon mixture into a large casserole dish.
In a smaller bowl, combine the oats, 1/2 cup maple syrup, coconut oil and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Sprinkle over the apples. 
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. The apples should be soft but still holding their shape and the oats golden.

Serves 6 to 8

Enjoy warm as a dessert or try for breakfast with some Greek Yogurt or Kefir.
