Last but not least, Christmas Eve ended with dessert! I love apples. I’ve always wanted to try an apple crisp but usually when I just bake an apple for myself it is always easiest just to chop one apple, bake it, and sprinkle it with cinnamon. A perfect snack/dessert on a cold winter’s night. However, it is not an apple crisp. With all the dishes that were made for Christmas Eve, I wanted a lighter dessert that would be more on the healthy side. Since I was making dessert for the family, I knew this would be a perfect time to try out a real apple crisp.
This recipe was adapted from here:
- 3 large apples, sliced (I used Fuji)
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 heaping tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 3 tbsp agave or maple syrup (divided)
- 1/3 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup GF rolled oats
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease an 8×8 glass baking pan.
- In a large bowl, toss sliced apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1 tbsp of agave.
- Pour apple mixture into glass baking pan and bake for 10 minutes.
- While apples are baking mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. (Melt coconut oil before adding to easier mixing.)
- When the apples are ready, remove them from the oven and sprinkle the topping mixture over the apples.
- Place back in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
