by Kara Kimbrough


4 medium Granny Smith apples, sliced into thin pieces

1 small lemon

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup old-fashioned oats

1/3 cup butter or butter substitute, softened

1 tablespoon of low-fat milk

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 8-inch square glass baking dish with non-stick spray. Grate 1/2 teaspoon of the lemon peel and squeeze two tablespoons of lemon juice. Stir and combine peel and juice with sliced apples in the baking dish.


In a separate bowl, stir remaining ingredients until well mixed; sprinkle over apples. If mixture is too dry, add a little more milk.


Bake 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender.


Recipe doubles easily.
