Ingredients

Fruit Layer

Pecan-Oat Topping

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat a 10 1/2 x 7 1/2-inch (or similarly sized) baking dish with 1 teaspoon olive oil.
  2. To make the fruit layer, put the apples, dates, cranberries, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon into a medium-sized bowl and stir with a large spoon to combine. Transfer the apple mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread it in an even layer.
  3. To make the pecan-oat topping, put the oats, pecans, coconut, 6 tablespoons maple syrup, 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon into a medium-sized bowl and stir with a large spoon to thoroughly combine. Spread the oat/pecan mixture over the apples in an even layer.
  4. Cover and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Drizzle 2 tablespoons maple syrup over the top of the crisp and bake for another 5 to 8 minutes, or until the topping is slightly golden. 
  5. Transfer the casserole to a wire rack and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Spoon into shallow bowls and serve with dairy-free milk on the side, if desired. Tightly covered and stored in the refrigerator, the crisp will keep for two days.

Chef’s Note: If preferred, you can use vegan buttery spread in place of the olive oil.
