Apple Crisp

There’s nothing like warm, apple crisp right out of the oven. The smells of cinnamon, and baked apples just make my mouth water. Yum-Yum!

We were given a fruit basket for Christmas and had an over abundance of apples. I don’t like wasting fresh fruit and debated on what I could make. Apple cake, pie, or crisp. Crisp won out, it’s easy and quick to whip up. I wanted to make it a little healthier than regular crisp that’s full of flour and sugar and here is what I came up with. I used almond flour instead of all-purpose flour and molasses instead of sugar – almond flour is gluten free and molasses is sweet and offers some nutritional value.

P1010314 All of the apples are peeled and then diced.

P1010315 This is the crumb mixture. I chopped the pecans to small into pieces (if you like your crisp a little crunchy feel free to leave them in bigger pieces).

P1010316 The apple mixture goes on the bottom of a lightly sprayed baking dish. The crumb mixture goes on top of the apples, and lastly I added some small, diced pieces of butter before putting it in the oven.

Here’s the recipe:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a pie dish with cooking spray (or for a richer flavor you could butter it – but that adds more calories).

Apple Mixture

6 medium apples (I used 4 golden delicious and 2 red delicious)

1/2 heaping cup of Almond Flour

1 heaping Tablespoon dark Molasses

Mix this together, pour into your baking dish and set it aside.

Crisp Mixture

2 Tablespoons ground flax-seed

1/4 cup oatmeal (I used quick cook plain oatmeal)

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 Tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

Mix the crisp mixture and pour it on top of the apple mixture. Dice up 2 Tbsp of cold butter and sprinkle on the top.

Bake for about 35 minutes or until the apples are fork tender and it’s hot and bubbly.

Enjoy some fresh baked crisp!!~Bam
