Apple Crumb Squares with Apple Cider Sauce

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/apple_crumb_squares_with_apple_cider_sauce.html

From EatingWell:  Fall 2003

These squares are dressed up with a sweet and tangy apple cider sauce and a dollop of low-fat ice cream; they also make a satisfying simple dessert or snack on their own. (Adapted from The Complete Vegetarian Handbook by Kathy Farrell-Kingsley; Chronicle Books, 2003.)

8 servings | Active Time: 1 hour | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch square or 7-by-11-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk oats, whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl. Work in the oil and apple-juice concentrate with a fork or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Press 2 cups of the oat mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Arrange apple slices over the crust in three overlapping rows. Mix the walnuts into the remaining oat mixture. Sprinkle over the apples and pat into an even layer.
  4. Bake until the top is golden and the apples are tender when pierced, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. Meanwhile, make Apple Cider Sauce.
  6. To serve, cut into 8 pieces and place on dessert plates. Top with ice cream (or frozen yogurt) and drizzle with cider sauce.
