Grain Free Apple Crisp

Grain Free Apple Crisp

adapted from recipe by Iris Higgins at The Spunky Coconut

6 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon sucanat
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/4 cups blanched almond flour
1/3 cup sucanat
1/3 cup walnuts
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
10 dates

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Toss apples in a large bowl with the cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of coconut palm sugar. Place apples in an 8 x 8 inch glass baking dish. Blend the rest of the ingredients in a food processor for 30 seconds. Spoon mixture evenly over apples. Bake for 30 minutes or until apples are cooked through. Check after 10 minutes and place tinfoil over the topping if it starts to brown too much on top.

This was so delicious, although a little sweeter than anything I’m used to eating. Next time I would cut the sucanat in the topping to a 1/4 of a cup. The dates are what make this so brilliant – the little pieces in the crumb top mimic what butter, brown sugar and flour would do by creating chewy, sweet bites.
