Low Fat Apple Crisp

You will need:
  • 7 c apple slices
  • 1/3 c sugar (or sugar substitute)
  • 2 T flour
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • 1 c quick rolled oats
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 c oleo (margarine)
9x13 inch pan bowls spoons, scraper, etc sharp knife This apple crisp is delicious, having all the goodness of apple pie without the calories of the pie crust. It's very basic, and you probably have all the ingredients on hand if you bake regularly. I made the mistake of using oats that were not "quick" the first time I made it. They do not soften, despite the long baking time, and the topping was very crunchy. I didn't mind, but hubby did not like that. You could add some nutmeg too, if you like.

Peel, core and slice apples till you have 7 cups. Toss them with the white sugar (or substitute), flour, and 2 t of the cinnamon. Spread this mixture in the bottom of a baking pan. Cut together the oats, brown sugar, 1 t cinnamon, and the oleo, until crumbly. Sprinkle this on top of the apples. Bake at 350 F for 50-60 minutes. This is great with ice cream, whipped topping, yogurt, or just plain.

This sounds lovely. I am not sure what oleo is though. In Greek it means oil.

oleo is also called margarine, a butter substitute
