1/3 cup melted organic butter (or very very soft will do – we use Alliston Creamery’s from Alliston, Ontario)*
2/3 cup organic oats (from Oak Manor in London area, Ontario)
1 cup organic brown sugar (we used the organic brown cane sugar by Coco Camino– gives it a caramel apple flavour; can use cane sugar though)
1/3 cup organic spelt flour (one they grow at the farm – gives it a nice nutty flavour)
2 to 3 teaspoons vanilla
Good dash of cinnamon
Mix together with a fork. Pour over peeled sliced apples enough to generously cover in about 2 layers a 8×8 deep pan (from the apples grown at the farm)
Bake at 375°F 40 min It’s odd, but it usually needs the whole 40 min – but if your oven runs hot, check it at 35min – always a good idea at any rate.
Double the recipe – use a 9×13 deep dish pan – cooks in the same amount of time.
At home I often add 1 teaspoon clubhouse rum – it warms up the flavour (good in oatmeal cookies too!! & Carrot cake & banana muffins … mmm)
Can use Earth Balance Sticks in place of the butter This makes great pie topping, instead of making a top crust. Especially wonderful for pear pie… (makes a pear strudel pie!!)
