Filling:

4 medium apples
1 cup frozen blueberries
2 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp + 1 tsp sweetpotato powder (or cornstarch)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Topping:

1 cup almonds, processed until chunky
3/4 cup regular rolled oats
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut oil (can use olive oil)
Pinch sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400F and grease a 9×9 pan. Peel and chop the apples. Place in a large bowl and mix with the rest of the filling ingredients. Stir well and set aside.

2. In a food processor, place 1 cup almonds into the bowl and process until chunky. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse for a few seconds until just mixed. You don’t want to over-process this mixture so that it stays chunky. Pour 1/2 cup of this topping into the apple/blueberry mixture and stir.

3. Pour the apple filling mixture into the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle on all the remaining topping over top.

4. Cover (with casserole lid or foil poked with holes) and bake for about 40 minutes at 400F. If you do not cover it, the topping will burn. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes before serving. Be careful because it will be super hot!
