Recipe: Vegan Apple Crisp

If you read my blog regularly, you know that my knowledge of kitchen utensils is sub par, and up until I made this recipe, I had no idea that there's a difference between an apple brown betty (contains breadcrumbs) and an apple crisp (uses oats and/or flour).  (I do like the term "betty" better than crisp, though, because it reminds me of Ram Jam's "Black Betty.")

I made a vegan apple crisp recipe I found on The Post Punk Kitchen's site (new and improved!  check it out!).  I don't like raisins all that much and was fresh out of arrowroot powder so I used cornstarch, but otherwise, I followed the instructions and ingredients to the letter. 

And it looked a little something like this: 
Admittedly, I'm my own worst critic, so I thought this recipe was just ok.  Growing up, my mom never ever EVER used sugar in recipes.  She used honey instead, and I think I'm more accustomed to what apples taste like when they're mixed with honey - not gobs of white sugar.  BUT...I made this for some dinner guests and they gobbled it up, so I have to believe that if you're a fan of cooking apples with sugar, you'd like this recipe.  I think I'd make this vegan apple crisp again, but maybe I'd try to use agave instead.
