Grain Free, No Sugar Added Apple Crisp

This week I decided to post about a dessert because my sweet tooth was going wild all week and I needed it satisfied in order to stay on the right track. I searched Pinterest high and low to find an apple crisp recipe that was completely complaint with my diet. I finally found one here and decided to give it a try.

I will say for being grain free, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free, it was pretty dang good. I will warn you the crumble on the top is not going to taste like your grandma’s recipe but it will satisfy that sweet craving. As for the apples, I could eat them alone all day, everyday.

I used Gala apples but you can use any type you prefer to bake with. If you want it even lower in sugar than go with granny smith.

This is prebaking! About to go into the oven!

I somehow always decide to cook at night so my pictures are a little dark but #momlife.

  • 4 apples, cored and peeled

  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon, divided (Ihalf in apples, half for crumble)
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Core, peel, and slice the apples (thinner is better). Toss the apples with the lemon juice and 2 tsp vanilla extract. Add 2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp nutmeg and toss again. Place in an 8×8″ baking dish. It does not need to be greased.
  3. Melt the coconut oil, then mix in the almond flour, pecans, and 1 tsp cinnamon.
