‘Tis the season … of baking! Holiday parties are everywhere – at home, at work, during the day, weeknights and weekends. Baked sweets & treats are ALL. OVER. THE. PLACE. And hard to avoid, right?
Well, we’re here to help. One way to avoid eating all of the not so healthy dessert is to bring a healthier style dessert of your own. How does a Gluten Free Apple Crisp sound? Mmmmm….yummy, right!
Our friend, Dr. Amanda Tracy, ND of Advanced Health & Wellness in Andover, MA shares this delish GF Apple Crisp recipe with us. Just look at all the natural goodness & simplicity of this Holiday Healthy recipe!
Gluten Free Apple Crisp
5 Granny Smith Apples
1 Tbsp Pure Maple Syrup or natural sweetener of choice
3 Tbsp Water
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
For the Crumble Topping:
1 cup Regular Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Almond Flour
1/2 cup Chopped Almonds or walnuts or pecans
3/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 cup melted coconut oil or butter
1/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup or natural sweetener of choice
Preheat oven to 350°F. Peel apples and dice into cubes of approximately equal size. In a large bowl, toss with maple syrup, water and cinnamon.
Pour apples into greased 9 x 9-inch baking dish.
In the same (now empty) bowl, add oats, almond meal, nuts, cinnamon, salt, coconut oil or butter, and maple syrup. Stir crumble topping together and pour into baking dish on top of apples.
Bake for 40-45 minutes until apples are soft, covering pan loosely with aluminum foil halfway through to prevent from over-browning.
Serve hot & enjoy!
