Simple & Delicious: Grain Free Apple Crisp

So, two nights ago I was poking around my Pinterest boards and some blogs for some recipes for the menu plan next week.  I came across this paleo apple crisp and decided it would be a fun and fairly healthy weekend treat for our stay in movie night after the kids go to bed.  Since I was low on almond flour, I made my own adaptation, of course.  I was also out of maple syrup and on top of that feeling cheap.    So, instead of honey (as called for), I just used regular ol' white and brown sugar (in limited amounts) telling myself "sugar is sugar" after all.  Therefore, I don't think I can call it paleo apple crisp...

Here is the recipe I concocted and took photos of after dark last night :)

Fruit bottom:
4-5 granny smith apples, peeled and sliced
(I dipped them in lemon juice and drained the excess off.)

1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup finely shredded dried, unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup arrowroot powder
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened

Place apples in 8x8 dish.  Mix topping and crumble over the apples.  Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.  Don't let it burn.

Serves 4.


I should definitely not make this when I am alone or I will eat the whole pan :)
