Tart apples work best for this recipe-- their slightly sour taste pairs well with the sweet maple syrup and nutty almond flavor. You can also substitute firm peaches for the apples, if desired.

It didn't quite have the stick-to-your-bones dessert flavor that I was hoping for, but that taste generally comes with massive amounts of butter and calories, so at the end of the day its a very tasty healthy dessert. I subbed walnuts for almonds as that was all I had on hand.

I didn't have any tart apples, and it would have been better with a tart apple. I needed to make a bit more of the topping than the recipe called for. The second topping I made with pecans instead of almonds which tasted great. I liked it because I was craving a baked apple taste on a cold Sunday, and my husband liked it because it wasn't very sweet. I served mine with some fat-free dessert topping and that gave it some creaminess that I desired. I will make again.
