This winter has given way to some raw mornings. A tasty treat with cinnamon in the oven warms the house and our tummies. For breakfast, apple crisp paired with coffee or to top waffles always brings a smile to the table. Perhaps you’ll whip up some coconut cream or ice cream to top off your apple crisp.
1 tsp Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp Salt
3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1/2 cup Almond Flour (can substitute chopped almonds)
1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats
1/4 cup Sugar (can substitute Maple Syrup, Coconut Sugar, or chopped pitted Dates)
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Allspice
Preheat oven to 350 °
Remove apple cores and seeds. Slice apples into an 8″x8″ baking dish. Leave the skins on the apples- you won’t want to loose out on all that fiber and vitamins! The coconut oil in the topping helps to soften the apple skins.
Sprinkle with lemon juice and salt. Put your dish in the oven to start warming while you make your topping.
In a mixing bowl, melt coconut oil. Add all other ingredients and stir to mix. Topping will be loose and crumbly. Take your baking dish out of the oven and sprinkle topping over apples. Loosely cover your dish with foil. Place in the oven for 15 minutes. This will help to soften the apple skins. Remove foil and continue to bake for 30 minutes more.
When finished, your apple crisp will be toasted on top and the apples will be fork soft. Your house will smell amazing!
Remove from oven and let rest 20-30 minutes, if you can wait that long. Serve warm.
