¼cupunsalted butter 3.5 oz /100 grams – or coconut oil
Vanilla ice-cream or
Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
Arrange sliced apples in a large baking dish (like a 10"x15" or a 9"x13”). Sprinkle with cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon and drizzle with lemon juice and water. Mix thoroughly, until the apples are well coated (as always, using your hands is easier – and fun!). Spread into an even layer.
In a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, pecans, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg if using. Melt butter and pour over oat mixture. Mix well and sprinkle over apples.
Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until topping is golden brown and the apples are super tender (test with a knife, especially in the center). If the topping starts becoming too brown before the apples are ready, cover with foil until they are done.
Remove from the oven, set aside for about 10-15 minutes to allow the crisp to set a bit and serve warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or greek yogurt.
Peel the apples. The skin doesn’t break down during baking and can make for a tougher texture.
Be sure to slice your apples evenly so that they bake evenly!
Give the crisp ample time to bake. I bake it for almost an hour - it will depend on the pan! Make sure to give the apple slices time to soften and really release their juices. Those juices will thicken as they cook and the apple crisp should be bubbling when you take it out of the oven. Look for bubbles around the edges, but also in the center.
