Yogurt Apple Crisp

(In my monster voice) 
I want my apple pie O_O



But I'm not supposed to eat any dairy or starches (except yogurt and oat)

So here is my desperate (but IMHO really good) take on Apple Pie

Ingredients:
1 Bag Granny Smith Apples
3/4 Cup Oat flour
I cup instant oatmeal
1 Cup and 4 Tbsp Greek Yogurt
2 Cups Brown sugar (loosely packed in cup)
1 tsp cinnamon

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Peel the apples and slice into wedges.  Place them on your pie pan or casserole.
Pour a cup of the yogurt on the apples and make sure everything is covered.
Since Greek yogurt is thick, the best way to do this is with your hands.
Mix the oat flour, 1 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and cinnamon.
Cover the apples with the flour mixture.  This will absorb the juice after the apple is cooked and make the dish creamier without the fat :-D Yey!

Place dish into oven, covered for 30 minutes

While waiting, make your crumble by mixing the instant oatmeal with remaining sugar then the yogurt.  This is typically done with butter, but flavored Greek yogurt works great. 

Remove dish from the oven, and put the crumble on top. 

Place back into the oven for another 15-20 minutes or until your house smells happy and the crumble becomes crispy.

Notes:
Get regular Greek Yogurt, not the low fat ones.  In this case I had strawberry flavored yogurt in the ref so I used that.  If you only have regular yogurt, use a cheese cloth or katsa to let the yogurt drip and get thicker.  I  don't think thinner yogurt will work as well (but you can try if you like).

Desperation never tasted so good.
