  1.  Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13 dish with cooking spray.

  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the following ingredients to make your crumb topping: flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

  4.  In a bowl, whisk together the melted butter and flour then add water, lemon juice and vanilla. Finally add cinnamon and brown sugar. Be sure to mix well so there are no chunks of brown sugar.

  7. Bake in preheated oven about 35-40 minutes or until top is brown and apples are tender.
