Healthy Apple Crisp

Ingredients for filling: 1 Fresh Orange Juiced 4 Medium Apples peeled and chopped (4 servings) 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract Ingredients for topping: 1/2 teaspoon of fresh orange zest 1/2 cup buckwheat flour 1/2 cup quick oats 3 tablespoons wheat germ 3 tablespoons ground flax 3 tablespoons agave nectar to help form crumb 3 teaspoons or more as needed of cold coconut oil to form crumbs Directions: Heat oven to 325 degrees. In a bowl whisk together orange juice, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Place chopped apples in a medium size baking dish (too big of a baking dish will dry out apples! Make sure the apples pile at least 2 inches high) and pour liquid mixture over it. Stir the apples until they are well coated. In another bowl, place all the dry ingredients for the topping into a bowl. Pour in agave nectar. Spoon cold coconut oil over and stir until you get a crumbly mixture. Evenly, place crumb mixture onto the apples with a spoon. Place baking dish into the oven for 1 1/2 hours. Test to see if the apples underneath are soft. If so, take it out and let cool for 15 minutes. Enjoy with a scoop of your favorite vanilla icecream or alone! :)
