Apple Crisp


Here’s an apple crisp recipe just in time for the holidays...
This recipe is soooo good even non-scd’ers are unsuspectingly liking it!!!

Filling :
6 medium cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced thickly (I use the wagon wheel cutter)
1/4 cup butter, cut into small squares
1/4 honey (use a little more if you like it sweet)

1.Generously butter a 8X10 baking dish
2. Arrange apples in baking dish.
3. Dot apples with butter and drizzle honey over apples.

Topping:
2 cups almond flour
1 cup unsweetened dried coconut
1 TBSP cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup pecan halves, broken into large pieces
1/4 cup honey

1.Preheat oven to 425F.
2. Mix almond flour, coconut, and cinnamon together. Add butter and work until you have small meal. Add pecans, mix. Add honey... It will be rather gooey at this point.
3. Drop in globs on top of apples then carefully spread to somewhat cover the apples (I like to leave a few apples peaking through).
4. Bake for 15 minutes then decrease temperature to 350F.
5.Bake for about 40 more minutes on 350F (It is done when you see the apple juices bubbling up). Watch carefully so not to burn crust.
6. Let set about 15-20 minutes before serving. (Still warm but not tongue burning hot :o)
7. Serve warm with sweetened SCD yogurt or frozen SCD yogurt for an extra yummy treat!!!

Variation... Add 1/2 cup cranberries, coarsely chopped and increase honey to 1/2 cup honey (or more if you like it sweeter) to filling... Mmmmg good...

Eat in good health..
This recipe is from my dear friend and fabulous SCD cook, Lise Baur - thank you Lise!

I substituted 2 cups of hazelnut flour for the almond flour, doubled the honey, and added 3 tbs water to the crumbs. I found the texture was too crumbly without the water. I also used cranberries in the filling. I served this to 10 adults who all raved.

The apple crisp smelled and tasted yummy. It so tasted like it had flour and other illegal stuff. Next time I will stick in some cranberries to see how it tastes.
