This recipe is so easy. It makes a wonderful dessert, snack or breakfast dish.
6 tart medium apples or pears (peel if not organic, finely sliced)
¼ cup agave nectar or other sweetener
¼ cup margarine (Earth Balance, Smart Balance – no hydrogenated oils!)
½ cup oats
½ cup raw almonds
Place sliced apples or pears neatly in an 8 or 9” pie plate. Grind the oats and almonds into a coarse meal. Pour into a small bowl. Add the agave and cut in the margarine to a crumble consistency. If the mixture is too wet, add more flour. Using your fingertips, pinch and toss the mixture over the top of the fruit. Leave a ½ border of fruit exposed. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes at 400oF. Remove foil and bake at 350oF for 15-20 more minutes. Serves 6-8.
