A New York lawyer's adventures with animal-free eating
Vegan apple crisp
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/8 cup blue agave syrup
6 tbsp. flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. butter (I use Earth Balance sticks)
1/2 cup old fashion rolled oats
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Core the apples and then chop them into smallish pieces. Toss the apples with the lemon juice to keep them from browning. Spray a 9×9 inch baking dish. Place the apple pieces into the baking dish. Drizzle the blue agave syrup on top.
Combine the flour, sugars, spices and salt in a food processor, and pulse several times until combined. Cut the chilled butter into small pieces, then add the butter to the food processor mixture and pulse until it is crumbly and sandy looking (about 5 or 6 pulses). Add the rolled oats and pulse once or twice more.
Use a rubber spatula to spread the topping over the apples. Bake the crisp uncovered for 40 minutes. Let cool before serving.
