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

  • As most of you know, we’ve been ditching and switching most of the toxic products in our home over the past year and replacing them with better plant based products. The process felt overwhelming to start with but each month we tossed one thing and it made it feel so much more attainable. .
When people ask me where to start, I almost always say ditch the toxic laundry detergent and dryer sheets. This affects the entire family. Switching that means no more wearing clothes and rolling in sheets that are filled with chemicals 24/7. These chemicals are transferred onto your skin and your children’s skin and absorbed into your body throughout the entire day 😖
.
Scan your products with the @thinkdirty app and see how they rate. Most of them will have chemicals that have been linked to irritation of the skin and eyes, organ toxicity, developmental/reproductive toxicity, endocrine disruption, cancer and so much more. That’s scary enough for me to just avoid all together. #knowbetterdobetter #gimmealltheplants

Celebrating it with a throwback to the days when phone pictures were terrible quality, we were much younger, thinner, tanner, less wrinkles and spent our money traveling the world. I love you so much and this beautiful life we’ve built together 🖤
