Healthy Apple Crisp

I was hungry for an apple crisp. So, I had two Fuji apples that I put together a recipe to help out that sweet tooth without being sorry that I ate something sweet and this did the trick! The aroma of the cinnamon and honey in the apple crisp baking in the oven made the whole house smell like the holidays and the taste of the topping and apples together was delicious.
2 large Fuji apples, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup oats (quick or old-fashioned)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 tablespoons honey
For the filling:
In a medium bowl, mix together apples, lemon juice, cinnamon and honey. In a small bowl, mix water and cornstarch and mix into apple mixture.
Pour the apple mixture into two small 4 1/2 inch pie dishes.
For the topping:
In a medium bowl, combine oats, salt, cinnamon.
In a small bowl, combine vanilla, oil, and honey. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry. The mixture will be crumbly. 
Sprinkle the topping over the apple mixture.
Bake lightly covered with foil at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, until apples are soft and topping golden brown. Enjoy!
