Max's Apple Crisp

My 12 year old son has taken an interest in cooking. He had a cooking class in school and it seems to have sparked an interest.  I am really happy about that.  He especially likes to cook things he can do "all by himself".  Apparently they made apple crisp in school. Yesterday he asked if he could make it at home. You don't have to ask me twice! He even said he would make a vegan version so Mom could have some too (love that kid). 

Thanks Max for your kindness and your apple crisp.  I am one proud Mom!

Max's Apple Crisp

2 large Honeycrisp apples cored, peeled and cubed
2/3 cup flour
2/3 cup oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
6 tbsp organic raw turbinado sugar
6 tbsp Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Spread melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the apples in a pie dish in an even layer. In a bowl mix the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon and melted Earth Balance. Stir to incorporate. Spread the mixture on top of the apples. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes until the apples are soft and the top crisp. You may want to broil for the last minute or so to depending on how browned you would like the top to be.
