Almond crisp topping: For an almond flour only topping, omit the pecans.You can also make this in a 10-inch skillet by cooking the apples first and then adding the crisp top and baking it in the oven for 10 minutes. Don't store leftovers in skillet though because it will take on the metallic taste of the iron.

In a large bowl, combine the topping ingredients and blend with a fork just until you have a light crumble. Or, you can also pulse a few times in a food processor.
Gently spread the topping across the apple filling.
