White spelt flour usually can be found in natural foods stores, but you can substitute 1/3 cup unbleached flour if necessary. Pineapple juice adds a nice flavor, but apple juice works, too.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place apples, agave or syrup, pineapple juice, butter, and vanilla seeds and pods (or extract) in a 4-quart stockpot. Cook over medium heat until apples are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, lemon zest, and lemon juice.
  2. While apples are cooking, make topping. In a large bowl, combine spelt flour, brown sugar, oats, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives.
  3. Remove vanilla pods, if using. Spoon apple mixture into an 8x8-inch square baking dish or a 9-inch pie dish. Sprinkle with oat mixture. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.Remove vanilla pods, if using. Spoon apple mixture into an 8x8-inch square baking dish or a 9-inch pie dish. Sprinkle with oat mixture.
