3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup butter, melted

DIRECTIONS
For apple filling, in large bowl combine apples and maple syrup. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; stir to coat. Place apple mixture in 2-quart square baking dish.

For topping, in medium bowl combine oats, flour, brown sugar, almonds, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon and ginger. Add melted butter; stir until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over apples.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until apples are tender and topping is browned. Serve warm or cooled.
