- 4 large Granny Smith or Honeycrisp apples
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons Japanese Non-Gluten Rice Flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch

- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C.
Peel apples and thinly slice so each piece is approximately 1/4 – 1/8 inch thick. You should have 4 heaping cups of sliced apples.
In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix together apple filling ingredients, then pour mixture into the bottom of a greased 8×8 baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine oats, Japanese Non-Gluten Rice Flour, almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Pour melted butter on top of dry ingredients and mix thoroughly
Evenly distribute the oat topping over the apple filling.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the oat topping is golden brown and the apples are tender when pierced with a fork.
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Apples should be room temperature to ensure they bake evenly in the oven.
