Apple picking – a common fall activity enjoyed by thousands of people ever year. Yet somehow, for the past 5 years we’ve tried and failed to apple pick. Apple picking is the type of party you don’t want to be fashionably late to, yet we always were – and there were never any apples left. But this year we did it! A successful 26-lb haul of fresh picked apples. We tried to remember all the varieties we picked but couldn’t, there were just too many! Enjoy my first apple crisp ever – naturally a peanut butter one!
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt
3T light butter or margarine
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
6-10 apples, cored and sliced
1. Place the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl and stir together. Add the butter and peanut butter and cut it in with a knife, then mix with your hands until all the butter and peanut butter is evenly incorporated.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the apples in a deep 9×13 baking dish until the dish is completely full. Top with the crisp mixture to cover the apples. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until apples are very tender and the topping begins to turn a medium-dark brown.
