Ok, I experimented this last week to come up with an no added butter, fat, oil one. Only what is in the bread.
{{{{ Diet People }}}}

Anti's Apple Crisp

3 ore-ida apples
1 granny smith apple
6 tablespoons loosely<BR> packed brown sugar.
1 teaspoon cinnamon, split
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 slices of any whole grain bread, have tried rye and oatmeal.
1/8 cup of regular or
quick oats
1 tablespoon of water
And a sprinkle of salt.

First wash apples cause you will use some apple peeling in topping.
Peel and leave some of the apple on the peeling, slice apples, put into an 8 inch no-stick baking pan and add the 1 tablespoon of water.
and place in oven for 15 minutes at 375? F.

While apples are softening in oven: place 2 pieces of whole grain bread in food processor with loosely packed 1 cup of apple peel
skin and 4 of the 6 tablespoon of brown sugar. Add the oats.
Also 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and sprinkle of salt. Hit the high speed button 6 to 12 times. Depends on type of food processor. The end result you want for your topping is large crumbly and optionally you can add a some walnuts. We don't.

Pull apples out of oven and stir into them the rest of brown sugar and to taste the rest of the cinnamon. Put topping on and spread to edges and pop back into the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Until brown and crisp.. tada!
Serves 4.
