The combination of apples and raspberries with a light streusel topping is the perfect fall sweet treat.

Filling

5 medium apples, peeled, cored, and chopped in 1 inch pieces 1 bag (12 ounces) frozen raspberries without sugar 1/2 cup Splenda or sugar* 2 tablespoons regular white sugar* 1 tablespoon flour 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon salt

Topping

3/4 cup flour 1/3 cup rolled oats 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt 3 tablespoons butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 7 x 11 baking pan. In a large bowl, combine all filling ingredients. Stir to mix. Spoon into baking pan. In a small food processor, combine flour and rolled oats. Process until finely ground. Add remaining filling ingredients and pulsate until mixture begins to form crumbs and has a streusel-like consistency. Sprinkle on top of filling. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes or until apples are tender and mixture is bubbling.

Note: When I use Splenda, I often also use a small amount of regular sugar for a more natural flavor. In this recipe, consider the tartness of the apples you are using and alter the amount of Splenda or sugar to suit your tastes.
