– Apples – Lemon juice – Pure maple syrup – Pure vanilla extract – Ground cinnamon – Freshly grated nutmeg – Ground ginger – Ground cloves – Ground cardamom – All-purpose flour – Sea salt – Vegan butter – Chopped pecans – All-purpose flour – Old-fashioned rolled oats – Organic cane sugar – Ground cinnamon
Peel the apples and slice them into wedges or slices, ¼ to ½” thick (.6 to 1.25 cm). Add them to a large bowl with the lemon juice, then toss to coat.
To complete the apple filling, stir the maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, flour, and pinch of sea salt into the bowl with the apples.
Make the topping: stir the flour, oats, salt, cane sugar, maple syrup, flaxseed meal, and cinnamon into the browned butter-pecan mixture. Stir it with a fork until it’s somewhat sticky and sandy.
Transfer the apple filling to the greased skillet or baking dish. Scatter the crumb topping evenly on top of the apple filling. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake the crisp until the juices are bubbling around the sides, the apples are fork tender, and the crisp topping is golden brown.
