We are invited to dinner at a friends house and was asked to bring dessert. I chose this apple crisp and vanilla coconut ice cream.  This gluten free crisp is a perfect light, sweet end to a meal!!

All DONE!!!!

What You’ll Need:

For the filling:
6 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored & diced
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsps coconut sugar (you can also use honey)
1 tsp lemon juice

For the topping:
1/2 cup almond flour (I blended raw almonds in my Vitamix for 10 seconds)
1/2 cup gluten-free whole oats
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup honey (I used local)
3 tbsps unrefined coconut oil

What to do:
1.  Preheat oven to 375
2.  In a medium bowl, combine the apples, cinnamon, sugar & lemon juice.  Stir together until apples are coated evenly
3.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, honey & coconut oil
4.  Use your fingers (it’s messy) to mix everything together until it has a crumbly consistency
5.  Arrange the apples into a 9″pie dish.  Cover with the crumble topping
6.  Bake for 30-35 min, or until the top is golden brown.  Remove from the oven and cover for 5-10 minutes
7.  Apple crisp is best served warm but can also be served at room temperature.  Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to four days

Amy’s Apple Crisp

5-7 apples, peeled (I left a few strips of peel)
Lots of Cinnamon
2 tbsps organic raw sugar
3/4 cup almond flour OR make your own (I used 3/4 cup raw almonds & blended them for 30 sec to make my flour)
1 egg

Peel apples & put them in the bottom of your pie dish.  Sprinkle with lots of cinnamon & 1 tbsp sugar.  Mix with your hands.  Blend your flour & put into a bowl w/ egg, cinnamon & 1 tbsp sugar.  Whip with a fork.  Mash the almond mixture onto the top of your apples.  Bake for 30 min at 350 degrees.

Serve warm – YUM!!!

If you are lucky enough to live on the Central Coast like we do go up to Gopher Glen (up See Canyon Rd) to buy your apples.  They have a TON of different apples you can try and really good prices.  Super fun way to get apples!  Kids will love it too 🙂
