For the apple pie filling
5Granny Smith apples
¼cupwhite granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350°F.
To make the crust, mix the oats, flour, sugars, cinnamon and salt together.
2 ¾ cups rolled oats, 1 ¾ cups flour, ¾ cup brown sugar, ½ cup white granulated sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp salt
Add the butter and cut together using a pastry cutter, your hands, or two knives. Cut until the mixture resembles wet sand with some pea-sized pieces. Reserve 2 cups of the prepared crust and place in refrigerator.
1 cup butter
Press the remaining crust into a 10×14 inch pan (also called jelly roll size pan). Firmly and evenly press the crust, making sure to press the crust mixture up the sides of the pan.
Bake the crust for 15 minutes and set aside to cool.
Prepare filling by peeling, coring and thinly slicing the apples. Place the apples in rows on the cooled crust, overlapping the slices slightly.
5 Granny Smith apples
Sprinkle with flour, sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Crumble the reserved crust over the apples and finish by drizzling with maple syrup.
¼ cup flour, ¼ cup white granulated sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp allspice, ¼ cup maple syrup
Bake in preheated oven an additional 35-45 minutes until the apples are tender when a knife is inserted.
Remove from oven and cool one hour before enjoying them!
