1 tablespoon sugar ( Use 1/4 teaspoon Stevia powder or 7 drops Liquid )
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Slice apples thinly and spread in a 9″×9″ baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon.

Bake 45 minutes or until topping looks crunchy and apples are tender.
These results are based on the Tablespoon of Sugar in the recipe. The sugar will be lower if you use Stevia like I do.
