Apple Crisp


For the filling:

4 lbs apples (I use Roma)

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (cornstarch will work too)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1/8 teaspoon cloves

1/2 cup raisin (optional)

1 cup quick cooking oats (not instant)

1 cup flour

1 cup light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Peel, core and thinly slice apples.
  • Dissolve the arrowroot in the apple juice or water. Set aside.
  • Place apples and raisins in the baking dish, add sugars and spices and combine everything well (you may need to use your hands to do this).
  •  Pour arrowroot mixture over everything.
  • To prepare the topping, in a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Add oil, soymilk, and vanilla, mix well.
