Does that look scrumb-tious or what?
Remember a few weeks ago when I went to Vermont? And we all went apple picking?
Paleo Apple CrumbleCrisp
6 Medium-sized apples (I used macoun, mac and empire)
CrispCrumble or CrumbleCrisp (whichever floats your boat)
1 1/2 cups almond meal
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 Tbsp raw honey
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped
1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped
Continue to cut the apples in the thin slices and layer in a pie dish greased with coconut oil. Sprinkle cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and arrowroot between each layer. I went heavy on the cinnamon and lighter on everything else. The arrowroot acts like cornstarch and give it that real apple pie filling texture.
Cover your apples with the crispycrumbly and cover the whole mess with foil. Bake covered in the oven for 60 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes–this will make sure that the apples are soft and the crumblycrispy is browned.
I splurged (and cheated my cleanse…HEY, I’m human) and had some So Delicious vanilla bean Coconut Ice Cream…It’s dairy and soy-free and sweetened with agave. I would have bought the no-sugar added kind, but they didn’t have any…and I can’t eat CrumblyCrisple without some form of vanilla ice cream…
This was totally yum. I highly recommend you make it…today.
Things I would do differently next time: less nutmeg (but that’s just me), less chia seeds (maybe add a tablespoon) and I would add pecans to the crumble…
What’s your favorite apple dessert of late?
