A comforting and wholesome Apple Breakfast Crisp sweetened with pure maple syrup, spiced with cinnamon, and topped with a whole-grain oat and walnut topping. Serve with yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup for a delicious way to start your day.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine all filling ingredients. Toss until well combined. Transfer to prepared baking dish.
Wipe out the bowl and add melted butter, maple syrup and milk, stirring or whisking to combine.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, walnuts and coconut. Add to the butter mixture and stir until well combined. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples, pressing some pieces together to form larger clumps. Bake for 55-65 minutes, until the apples are tender and the topping is light golden brown (see note). Serve warm with yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.
You will most likely need to cover the crisp for a portion of the cook time to keep the topping from getting too dark. Begin checking it after 30-40 minutes. If the topping is getting dark, gently tent with foil. Remove the foil with 5-10 minutes remaining of cook time to allow the topping to recrisp.
