Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Vegan Apple Crisp


5 cups apples, thinly sliced, peeled if desired

3/4 cup brown sugar (we use a vegan one, not processed through bone char)

3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour

3/4 cup old fashioned oats

1 teaspoon cinnamon (generous)

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

3-4 tablespoons safflower oil

2 tablespoons soymilk (or 2 tablespoons other non-dairy milk)


- First of all, feel free to use any type or combination of apples. If you are using a very firm variety- granny smith for instance- it is a good idea to cook them for a couple of minutes, with as little water as possible, just to warm and slightly soften them. Otherwise they will stay rather firm instead of half-melting as they bake.

- Preheat oven to 350.

- Mix the other ingredients, with a spoon, then with fingers, until the texture is crumbly. If too dry, add more oil or soymilk; if too wet, add more flour.

- Transfer the apples to a medium casserole or pie dish. Sprinkle the dry mixture over them and even it out a bit with a spoon.

- Bake for 1/2 hour, checking occasionally, till the "crisp" is golden and crispy! Allow to cool a little before devouring with a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream -- enjoy!.
