Abbe's Apple Crunch Delight

The following recipe is a creation from my fellow-dancer friend Abbe. 

It is no secret that the combination of nuts and apples is such a classic and time-tested duet of flavors. (Just think of peanut butter and apples). By adding a smidgen of cinnamon sugar and honey, there is a pleasant sweetness drawn out of the apples that makes the perfect healthy dessert. A bit of oats makes this reminiscent of an apple pie, without the guilt inducing butter. 

Abbe's Apple Crunch Delight 

2 cups of mixed nuts (pecans, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds)

1 cup oats

1/4 cup almond milk

4 squares of graham crackers

Extra oats

3 tablespoons honey

2 chopped Fuji apples

3 tablespoons cinnamon

3 tablespoons sugar

Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Pulse topping ingredients in a blender or food processor to a mush-like texture. 
Take apple chunks and coat in the cinnamon and sugar.
Grease a 9 inch cake pan with cooking spray. Pour apple mixture into the pan. 
Pour the "mush" over the apples. Top with "Drizzle" ingredients. 
Place the cake pan in the oven and bake for around 40 minutes, or until the apples are tender and browned. 

Serve warm and a la mode.
