Apple Crisp

Serves 6-ish

4 C chopped apples (feel free use less or more depending on how thick you like your apple layer. Remember they'll settle a bit in baking)
2/3 C brown sugar (You can totally get away with half if you want a healthier option; I usually don't)
1/2 C whole wheat flour
1/2 C oats
1/3 C butter, softened or melted (do just 1/4 C if you're trying to healthify them)
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 C chopped pecans (optional, but I love them)
1/4 C shredded coconut (optional, but I love this too)

Lay apples in bottom of greased 8x8 inch pan (or about 6 4-ounce ramekins or 12 muffin cups). Combine other ingredients (and, yes, I do this in a very cavelier manner--I just toss it all together and mix it up) and plop the flour/oat mixture on top of the apples.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until apples are tender.

If you're in the mood for just a small treat, save the remainder of the crisp part in an air tight container and store in the fridge or freezer.
