  • Yield: 10 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • For the filling:
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 5 sweet red apples, such as Fuji, Gala, or Honeycrisp
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • For the topping:
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (use gluten-free oat flour if you are on a gluten-free diet)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spray an 8-inch by 8-inch baking dish lightly with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Core and thinly slice the apples, placing the sliced apples into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the lemon juice, raisins, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 2 teaspoons of the ground cinnamon to the apples and gently toss to combine.
  4. Pour the apple mixture into the baking dish.
  5. Then, make the topping by combining the almond flour, oat flour, chopped nuts, coconut oil, almond milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon in the mixing bowl.
  6. Stir to combine and then pour the topping mixture over the apples.
  7. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 35 minutes.
  8. Remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the topping has started to turn a golden brown and the apples are soft.
  9. Serve warm.

Notes

  1. It’s traditional to peel the apples for an apple crisp. But, I like the leave the skins on for more fiber and nutrition. But, feel free to peel the apples, if you wish.
  2. If you don’t want to use almond flour or oat flour, you can use any other type of flour you like, except for coconut flour. You can also use a mixture of half rolled oats and half flour, if you prefer.
  3. You can serve the apple crisp plain or with your choice of whipped cream or ice cream (look for sugar-free versions to keep this recipe free from added sugars). For dairy-free and vegan friends, look for dairy-free versions of either.
