Delicious Apple Crisp (ENJOY cookbook)

This delicious apple crisp recipe is a sneak peek of my cookbook  “Enjoy- healthy festive foods for you and your loved ones”.  All recipes are gluten, dairy and soy-free, paleo and mostly autoimmune protocol friendly. You can grab a copy here. This recipe is a variation of my all-time favorite Rhubarb-Raspberry-Crisp.

It is the perfect dessert for those cold fall/winter months. With Thanksgiving and all the holidays coming up, you will find a lot of joy with this apple crisp, especially if you have a lot of food restrictions. It is egg-free, nut-free, grain-free and dairy-free. Volunteer to make this apple crisp recipe for the next holiday gathering and you will be guaranteed to be able to enjoy some dessert as well.

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 of the apple crisp. Cortland apples are best suited for this recipe.

Some tips to make the best the apple crisp:

  • Choose sweet apples that are good for baking. Courtland or Gala work well.
  • 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.
  • If your apples are very large use less than 4. Make sure you cover the whole casserole with one layer of apples.

I recommend eating the apple crisp warm. Regular vanilla ice cream or coconut milk vanilla ice cream is a great addition.

Happy cooking

Instructions
  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.
