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

  • We head to the Outer Banks tomorrow morning and we are ready for some sunshine and beach time! I’m excited we have safe, clean products to bring along that not only protect our skin but also keep our sleep routine normal in a new place. On a serious note, I really do think as a whole we all try to minimize the level of what our bodies are exposed to and want to ignore that fact. That is until we are forced to pay more attention, for example, when we are pregnant or have a little one at home or get sick or someone in our family dies. Until then, we continue to burn toxic candles, clean with horrible products, eat terribly, not take quality supplements. Basically not adequately supporting our body to function at the highest level. I’ll be the first to say I ignored all of these things but I’m a firm believer that if you know better, you do better! I want everyone to have access to amazing products. I want everyone to have an oil to grab when they feel like they need some support. Starting your oils journey can be scary, overwhelming and confusing but you are worth that. Your body is worth it. Your family is worth it! And I promise, once you start it’s so.dang.easy #joinmyoilstribe
  • Yesterday was a day to say the least. Being 25 weeks pregnant and being a full time mom to a hyper, strong willed toddler is not for the faint of heart. Not to mention carrying around her 30lbs all over the place is rough on my body. Needless to say it was perfect timing to go back to @massagehope for another prenatal massage. This time I asked Karlee to focus on my mid/upper back. I didn’t realize how much tension I was carrying in that area until she started working on it. Today I feel like a new person and a recharged mama and I’m so thankful! Whether you are pregnant or just looking to treat yourself to some self care, I highly recommend @massagehope as they offer many types of massages. If you are local, please go give them a try and use discount code “Jennifer” for 10% off any massage 💆
