What a fantastic first week of fall it has been. Last weekend we went apple picking, so baking with apples is fresh on the mind. We started off with an easy favorite … apple crisp! I used this recipe from Joy the Baker with a few changes. First I doubled the recipe to fit a 9×12 pan and used an almond flour/oatmeal blend for the topping. I also used brown sugar and honey for sweeteners and coconut oil to replace some of the butter.
APPLE CRISP / with spiced almond flour topping
6-8 apples peeled, cored and sliced
3 T brown sugar
3 T. honey
2 t. chinese five spice powder (or a blend of your favorite fall spices)
1 -1/2 c. almond flour
1-1/2 c. oats
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 t. chinese five spice powder
1/2 t. salt
6 T. butter, chopped
1/2 c. coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350.
Add apples and other filling ingredients to a 9×12 glass pan. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the almond flour, oats, sugar, spice, and salt. Use your fingers to combine chopped butter with the flour /oat mixture (or melt the butter and stir in).Mix in the coconut oil with flour/oat mixture. Spread the topping over the apples and bake for approx. 40 min.
