Reinventing 'Apple Crumbled'
I have been cooking this recipe ever since my wonderfully kitchen-talented friend Mary Kay introduced me to it 'Apple Crumbled'. My version is a little bit different though. I am substituting butter with olive oil, white sugar with 100% organic maple syrup and adding some nuts for crunch. I had tried the butter substitution before, maple syrup is new for me too. So what's in the oven right now has something like this:
1 large green apple
5-6 small sweet red apples
both kinds peeled, cut in bite size pieces
juice of 1 lemon, poured over the apples
4 table-spoons of maple syrup, poured directly over apples after lemon and mixed
on a separate bowl mix the following, when all flour and ingredients are wet from oil and syrup, pour over the apples (the mixture should taste a slightly sweet not too much, you should also taste the pinch of salt which makes everything come alive!)
1.5 cups of whole wheat flour
2 table spoons of olive oil
4 table spoons of maple syrup (it's really not that much, trust me!)
1 cup of slivered almonds
2 cups of oats
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of salt
place the mixture in 350 degree oven (Fahrenheit :).
Cook until apples are soft and crumble on top is fragrant and slightly golden.
Enjoy warm or cold (works great with vanilla ice cream!)
Picture is to be posted soon (in about 30 minutes! :)
Yeiy! Just got it out. Looks good and smells good, yum! :)
