how to make an oat crisp
This time I split up the recipe between two mini cast iron skillets for two fun-sized treats! You can totally do that or bake it in one regular sized skillet.
Apple Chai Oat Crisp
- 3/4 cup whole wheat or gluten free flour
- 3/4 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
- 3 tbsp. coconut sugar
- 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp cardamom
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp butter melted
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 cups apples sliced
- 1 tbsp. arrowroot powder or cornstarch
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, coconut sugar, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, allspice, cloves and salt.
- Toss the sliced apples with the arrowroot powder. Melt the butter and use a fork to mix it into the oat topping.
- Add apples to a skillet toss the topping on top filling in the gaps between the apples. I like some apples showing on the top! Top with pumpkin seeds if desired and bake for approximately 30 minutes until apples appear baked and the crisp is lightly golden on top!
