Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.
  2. Use the 1 tsp. butter to grease the sides and bottom of an oven-proof baking dish.*
  3. In a large, deep bowl, combine the apples, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts.
  4. Toss to insure all apples are well coated with the mixture.
  5. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  6. In another deep bowl, mix the other sugars, flour, oatmeal, salt and cinnamon until it is well blended.
  7. Add the 1/2 lb. of cold butter, a little at a time, and use a pastry cutter or large fork to mash into a rough topping.
  8. The butter should be very cold so it does not melt during this mashing process; it should remain in small beads or chunks, about the size of peas.
  9. When all this butter has been incorporated, add the water and mix again, to further create a crumb-like topping (much like that found on a crumb-topped pie or coffee cake).
  10. Layer this crumbly mixture on top of the apple-walnut filling. Make sure the entire dish is covered in an even layer of sugary goodness.
  11. Use the remaining 3 tbsp. of cold, cubed butter to dot the top of the dish. This will melt and add moisture to the very top during baking.
  12. Bake for 45 minute to 1 hour, until the filling is hot and bubbly and the topping is mostly golden brown.
  13. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  14. Serve warm or at room temperature, topped with ice cream or fresh whipped cream.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Important note for those with gluten intolerance: oats are naturally gluten free, but cross contamination with wheat?in the factory or in the field?is a real possibility. To be on the safe side, look for oats and oat flours that say they are gluten free on the box!

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Like many ground spices, ground nutmeg loses its flavor over time. For the best nutmeg taste, purchase whole nutmeg and grate it right as you use it. If you're a real nutmeg lover, you can even buy a nutmeg grinder.

  • The average fresh lemon contains between 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lemon juice).

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • If a recipe doesn't specify whether you should use light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, just use whatever you have on hand or prefer. The difference is that dark brown sugar has more molasses and thus a stronger flavor.

Green Tips

  • Apples are at the top of the so-called "dirty dozen" so be sure to buy organic apples (and applesauce, apple juice, etc.) if you are concerned about pesticide residues in your food.
