For a GF (gluten free) version substitute rice flour for all purpose and pastry flour and eliminate oats. These crisps can be made with pears, berries, or peaches. In spring, we use rhubarb. Use 1 cup of sugar for every 4 cups of rhubarb.

3 Tbsp whole wheat pastry flour
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp finely ground sea salt
5 Tbsp unsalted European butter
¾ cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds) – I use pecans
½ cup rolled oats

Filling

3 medium Granny Smith apples (see note below)
3 McIntosh apples
1½ Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
¼ cup sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon

Add nuts and oats and process just to incorporate
Place in freezer for 1 hour

Filling:

Peel apples and cut into pieces and toss with other ingredients
Place in greased ramekins and put generous amount of topping on
Bake at 400 degrees for about 20-30 minutes until apples are soft and bubbling
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
