BUTTERLESS APPLE CRISP

Apple crisp in the United States or Apple crumble as it is known in the United Kingdom is a dessert consisting of baked apples topped with a crispy crust. Ingredients usually include cooked apples, butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and often oats and brown sugar, ginger, and/or nutmeg. Many different kinds of fruit can substituted for apples, such as peaches, berries, pears, etc. It is an easy to make and tasty alternative to apple pie and apple cobbler.(source-wiki)


INGREDIENTS

apple-2 medium size,peeled,cored and diced
brown sugar- 2 tbsp
cinnamon-1 tsp+1 tsp
flour-1/4 cup + 1 tbsp
lemon juice - 1 tbsp
instant flavored oats- 1 envelope ,any flavor- i used peach flavor

almond cereal- 3 tbsp ,crushed
sweet apple sauce-2-3 tbsp
salt a pinch


METHOD

Preheat oven to 375 deg F.In a bowl combine apple,cinnamon,brown sugar,a tbsp of flour and lemon juice.Mix it all together and transfer to a baking dish.
In another bowl combine flour,oats,apple sauce,cinnamon and salt.I added some crushed almond cereal also to this for some extra crunch.You can choose to skip this if you dont like or dont have it .Mix it all together by hand until it all comes together.Break it up into smal small pieces and put it on top of the apples.Put it in the oven and bake it for about 30-40 mins or until the top gets brown.Serve it warm with a scoop of ur favorite ice-cream.I didnt have any stock of ice-cream at the time.
