Best-Ever Healthy Apple Crisp
Desserts are a great finish to a great meal. Healthy sugar-free desserts are even better. This Apple Crisp is gluten-free and so delicious it could quickly become your go-to dessert for any occasion.
For the Apples
6 medium or large granny smith apples (pink lady, honey crisp, and other crisp apples also work well)
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
3 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons cinnamon
For the Crumble Topping
1 cup old-fashioned or quick oats
1/2 cup almond flour or almond meal
1/2 cup chopped almonds, walnuts, or pecans
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup melted coconut oil or butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel apples and dice into cubes of approximately equal size.
In a large bowl, toss the apples with maple syrup, water, and cinnamon. Pour apples into greased 9×9 or 8×8 inch baking dish.
In the same (now empty) bowl, add oats, almond flour, nuts, cinnamon, salt, coconut oil or butter, and maple syrup. Stir crumble topping together and pour into the baking dish on top of apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes until apples are soft, covering pan loosely with aluminum foil halfway through to prevent over-browning. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
