Apple season is here….What better way to use up our fresh, crisp, tart apples then in an apple crisp! This was my favourite dessert growing up, my mother made the best (aside from this one) mind you it was loaded with sugar and flour and oatmeal and……countless other ingredients that would literally make this dessert sinful.
This paleo apple crisp really satisfies the palate, especially if you have a strong sweet tooth like mine.
This is a paleo treat, as tempting as it maybe, resist eating the whole dish! Serving size should be 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup. Take your time and enjoy every single warm bite.
2 cups blanched almond flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ cup coconut oil or butter
¼ cup honey
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
5 medium apples, peeled, sliced, then chopped in half width-wise
In a large bowl, combine almond flour, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a smaller bowl, combine oil, honey and vanilla. Stir wet ingredients into dry. Place apples in a 8×8 pyrex baking dish. Crumble topping over the apples. Cover and bake at 350° for 50 minutes on low rack. When apples are soft and their juices bubble, remove cover and bake 10 more minutes to brown crispy. Serve warm
