I've always made my grandmother's recipe for apple crisp which used only flour, butter and sugar (no oats) but I wanted to "healthy" it up a bit. I loved the recipe with the suggestions of using half the amount of butter and cutting back on the brown sugar a bit. I made it again last night, cutting out another 2 tablespoons of butter and only using half the maple syrup, and adding a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. As a result, the apples weren't as soft and the topping wasn't as good. Next time I'll try making it with half the amount of maple syrup and an equal amount of apple cider, and will use 2 tablespoons of apple sauce to replace 2 tablespoons of the butter. As I said, I did love the recipe as is (with the suggested changes) but would like to cut back on the calories/fat a bit more so I can make - and eat - it more often.
