From Cooking Light. It's actually somewhat "light" in calories until you top with ice cream or whipped cream...

This is such a wonderful apple crisp!! The apricot jam, macadamia nuts, and smaller amount of added fat make it deliciously modern! And it is very tasty with, or without, whipped cream or ice cream. The only substitutions I made were: whole wheat pastry flour and butter--both of which worked great. I really love (!!!) that this recipe is lighter in calories; we can enjoy what is usually just a special occasion dessert more often! Thanks so much for sharing it, appleydapply!!
