Healthy Apple Crisp

Apple crisp might be one of the most delicious apple desserts of all time. Especially after a crisp day picking apples at a local orchard. However, we know it’s terrible for you. Full of sugar, flour, and butter.

This fall is different. This fall, I figured out how to make a healthy apple crisp that actually tastes good!

Believe it.

What you need:

(Bottom part)

  • 5 Cortland apples 🍏 🍎 🍏 (*Note: I’ve only made this with the cortland apples I’ve picked so far, if you can’t grab cortland, I suggest any type of apple you typically use in an apple crisp/pie normally)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 ginger
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemonΒ πŸ‹

(Topping)

  • IMG_18823/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 6 tsp melted coconut oil (Buy the refined coconut oil at Trader Joes if you are super sensitive to the coconut flavor)
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • a dash of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
  • some crushed walnuts and extra oats to sprinkle on top

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Mix the spices in a separate small bowl
  3. IMG_1888In a large bowl, toss the apples around with the lemon juice and spice mix until apples are all lightly coated in spices
  4. Place in a baking dish (I used a 8-10 inch dish)
  5. Put all the topping ingredients (except walnuts and extra oats to top) in a food processor and process until it becomes a paste. It should be a chunky paste- not completely blended and processed.
  6. IMG_1893Put mixture on top of the apples and use a rubber spatula to evenly coat all the apples. It should cover all the apples.
  7. Sprinkle walnuts and oats on top. I even put a dash of pumpkin pie spice on top too.
  8. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 50 minutes.
  9. Uncover and cool for 30 minutes.

Enjoy!

*You can store the remainder, if any, in the fridge for a few days and warm it up before eating : )
