Apple Crisp Recipe That Shows Dieting Doesn’t Have To Suck
The biggest reason for people failing to keep off weight is they miss the foods they love to eat. No diet plan, pill or guru is going to make you stick to a plan that you think sucks. Sure, you’ll do it for a while, lose weight, but then more than likely you’ll go back to your old eating habits and gain the weight back. This is why it’s important to eat things you like. While I’m pretty sure you’ve never tried this
apple crisp recipe I am sure you will love it! I’m not going to say it’s as good as Julian Pie Company Apple Crisp but it’s much healthier and should fill your sweet tooth craving. This recipe is out of Robb Wolf’s Paleo Comfort Foods – Homestyle Cooking In A Gluten Free Kitchen. I highly recommend buying a copy, full of recipes for all your healthy eating.
“Sullivan’s Apple Pie” was a family tradition at Christmas, Thanksgiving, and pretty much any other holiday. People always asked me the secret to the recipe, as it was not an overly sweet pie; rather, it was tart and tangy from the use of the Granny Smith apples (Granny Smiths were the secret). I’ve been making this pie since high school, and it always reminds me of home (and wondering which family member ate all the crisp topping, leaving the apples behind). I was never really big on pie crust. Just wasn’t my thing. For me, it was always about the warm, gooey apples, and the crumb topping. This apple crisp recipe pays homage to that. Baking this dessert will fill your house with some of the most amazing aromas.
1 cup (150 g) almond flour
1 cup (150 g) Steve’s Paleo Krunch, ground into rough meal
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup (80 mL) coconut oil or butter, softened
2 tablespoons honey (optional)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
5–7 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and Sliced
juice of 1 lemon
1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C)
2. Combine flour, Paleo Krunch, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl.
3. In a separate bowl, use a fork to combine coconut oil (or butter), honey (if desired) and vanilla. Mix into the flour/Krunch mixture.
4. Scatter apple slices in a 9-inch x 9 inch (23cm x 23cm) baking dish or similar-sized dish, and combine with lemon juice. Stir in remaining cinnamon, and combine well.
5. Sprinkle the almond/Krunch mixture over the apples, cover with foil, and bake for 45 minutes or until apples are soft and bubbly.
6. Remove foil, and bake 10–15 more minutes or until topping is browned. Variation—If you are allowing dairy into your life, this crisp is absolutely sinful still warm from the oven with some fresh whipped cream on top. Pears combined with apples makes for a tasty crisp too.
A great substitution for this recipe, if you don’t have Steve’s Paleo Krunch handy, is 1 cup (120 g) of finely chopped pecans.
