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.

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 apples, cored and peeled
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract, divided (half in apples, half for crumble)
  • 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.
  4. Sprinkle the crumble over the apples, then sprinkle the remaining 1 tsp vanilla extract over everything.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes covered, then another 10-20 uncovered. You apples should be bubbling and fairly soft when you put a fork through them.
  6. ENJOY YOUR GUILT FREE DESSERT

  • I put a blog post up today. One I didn’t know if I was going to share. It is the hardest thing I’ve ever written. It emotionally felt like the time to let go of some hurt and the only way I know how to do that is to write about it. This isn’t attention seeking. I expect no response. This is purely for me. While it’s a sad situation, it’s something I want to look back on and know I got through with my family.

  • This has been such a highly requested post and I finally put it together. Up on the blog today I am talking all about using essential oils safely in the nursery with your kiddos. I hope you all find it helpful and as a result, essential oils a little less intimidating. You can find the link to that post in my bio! 💕🌿

Things I wished I’d known going into it. I kept it to 10 things, otherwise you’d definitely unfollow me! What things do you wish you were told? 💕 . Link is in my bio! .

  • I’ve always been pretty open about having super sensitive skin and some hormonal acne. It sucks. I’m always afraid to try new products because I typically wake up to a new pimple. The excitement was real to try @clarinsusa #nextgenserum because I had heard amazing things. It didn’t disappoint. I genuinely feel like it has transformed the texture of my skin in less than 3 weeks. I added it to my morning and nighttime routine and I’m so happy with the results. Get your hands on this, I swear it’s worth every penny. .

I received this product complimentary from Clarins. The opinions are 100% my own. #gotforfree #freewithoctoly #sponsored
