Apple Crisp

I had the challenge before me. Make apple crisp..with no refined sugar. At all.
So. I started with 6 apples, some agave, cinnamon, and maple syrup.
Here's what I came up with! I was a little scared to actually eat it...BUT..it worked!
Craig will be so happy.

Sugarless Apple Crisp
6 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
3 tbsp raw agave
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 cup oats
1/3 cup flour
maple syrup + melted coconut oil

Toss apples with agave, cinnamon, and nutmeg. If you want it sweeter, add more agave. Let sit until juices form.  (I made a huge bowl of this the night before, let it sit on my porch overnight, and by morning, it was faily dripping in juices! I did sprinkle with lemon juice, too.)
Place in 8 by 8 square pan lightly sprayed with olive oil.
Combine oats + flour in a small bowl. Use equal parts maple syrup and coconut oil until a crumble forms. I used about 3 tablespoons each. (This is usually where people add some brown sugar..if you're not anti-sugar, add 1/3 cup) Sprinkle on top of apples. Bake on 350 for 20 minutes or until browned and apples are soft.

Yes, I know, my recipes aren't very technical but that's mostly because I just toss, add, sprinkle, etc until it "looks right". =)
p.s. even my anti-healthy sister loves this stuff!!
