Easy Apple Crisp (margarine free!)

What you need: 

5 cups apples, thinly sliced
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon nondairy milk

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Boil apples in water for 2 minutes to soften them up. Strain and place at the bottom of a square cooking dish.
2. Mix remaining ingredients until you get a flaky texture (if too moist, add a little bit more flour and mix well). Sprinkle over the apples and even out with a spoon.
3. Place dish in oven and bake 30 minutes. Allow to cool before eating.
Source of recipe: I try to use vegan margarine as little as possible when I cook, so finally decided to create a vegan margarine free apple crisp recipe, since I love this dessert so much. I hope you enjoy this!

I had high hopes for this, but it came out way too dry for me.  I had a couple bites last night, but im going to be throwing the rest away.  :'(  The only thing I did differently was used splenda instead of sugar.  Do you think that would make a big difference?

I made it subing applesauce for oil. I also put cinnamon on the apples first. I almost didn't realize it called for 5 cups of apples instead of 5 apples...which would have been way too much apples. It turned out great! Easier, and healthier than most applecrisp recipes.

This recipe was a disappointment for me. I consider myself a pretty good baker but the crumble came out more like dough. Be careful when adding liquid to flour ratio if your dough seems a little wet. A crumble should be fairly dry and I added too much soy milk. Otherwise, the apples tasted bland even after adding allspice, nutmeg and extra cinnamon. Granny Smith Apples work best as well--don't forget to peel them first! Cheers! :-[

maybe a silly question but....when you sub oil with applesauce do you put the same amount? Meaning, if it calls for 1/3 cup of oil do you put 1/3 cup applesauce?

I really want to make this because I don't like recipes with margarine in them, sorta takes my homemade dish and makes it a bit processed. And if I can get rid of the oil too, well even better!

This recipe is a good base. For me, the apples need to be mixed up and spiced also (I think they need some liquid so they soften without browning), and I used 2 oranges worth of juice for that. I also added allspice, ground cloves, and lots of nutmeg and cinnamon. I did mostly applesauce, with a bit of oil, and a pinch of salt. I agree that the boiling of the apples is unnecessary, and would make the apples too soft. I added blackstrap molasses to the crisp topping, and drizzled some on top. I turned it down to 325 for the last few minutes to continue to soften and bubble. The apples were perfectly cooked, but I've made a better topping. Still tasty.

Instead of oil I used apple sauce and instead of sugar I used apple juice concentrate (apple OVERLOAD!  ...but I recently ate a crisp that was so margarine-y and so sugar-y that I really wanted to see if a much healthier version could be made).  Even without the margarine or oil it crisped up nicely.

i put some cinnamon in with the apples while they cooked to add more flavor
this recipe is really delicious and easy!!
i also added shredded coconut and a little coconut milk into the topping it was sooo good!

Yummy-- you should definitely use brown sugar.  Next time I'll try the suggestion to use applesauce in stead of oil, and it would be nice to figure out a way to make a more gooey apple layer under the topping.
But very easy and good just the way it is too!
