Healthy Apple Crisp
This Best-Ever Healthy Apple Crisp is loaded with heart-healthy apples. Be sure to use green apples (a healthy healing eats favorite) because they stay firm during cooking, and they contain fewer carbs than other apples.
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 with maple syrup, water, and cinnamon. Pour apples into a 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 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 from over-browning.
