Ingredients

  • Apples (Cortland or Gala work well)
  • Cinnamon 
  • Tapioca flour 
  • Coconut flour
  • Sea salt
  • Honey
  • Coconut oil 
  • Water

How to Make this Delicious Apple Crisp

  1. Peel apples and cut them in half. Remove the core with a knife. Cut the halves into 1/4 inch slices and then cut those into thirds.
  2. Grease casserole and add apples to a casserole or cast-iron skillet. Sprinkle cinnamon on apples.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl combine tapioca flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, salt and stir well. (If you want to add nuts place the pecans in a food processor, blend until ground and add to the flour mix.) Add honey and coconut oil and mix until crumbles form. Add a little more coconut oil if the crumbles are too dry, add more tapioca flour if the crumbles are too wet.
  5. Finish up by distributing the crumbles evenly on top of the apples. Most of the apples should be covered. Pour water evenly on top.
  6. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the apples are soft and juicy and the crumbles are golden brown.
  7. Serve warm with coconut ice cream or coconut whipped cream.

Do you crave sweets a lot? Desserts on occasion are great, but frequent cravings are a sign of blood sugar dysregulation. This can easily be fixed without deprivation and restriction. If you need help with this schedule a free discovery call to work together.

Tips to Make the Best the Apple Crisp

How to get the perfect crumbles: The dough will seem a bit dry at first, but that means you have to keep squeezing it through your hands to make sure it is well combined with the coconut oil and honey. It should have the perfect crumble consistency, see picture above. Also, make sure that you measured correctly. In case you cannot achieve the perfect crumble texture (it should not look like a bunch of flour) add a little bit more coconut oil and honey in the right ratio.

How to get the perfectly juicy final result:

Make sure you cover the whole casserole with one layer of apples. If the apples are not as juicy after the baking time, add a little bit of water evenly onto the apple crisp and bake until the apples are soft.

What type of apples to use: Be aware that depending on the kind of apples you choose for this recipe, it will change the flavor (more or less sweet) and texture. Therefore, Cortland apples are best suited for this recipe. Gala apples work as well.

HOT TIP: Make sure to mix the dough thoroughly with your hands to achieve the perfect crumble texture (see picture above). You can add a bit more oil and honey if necessary.
