Paleo Apple Crisp

We took Jackson apple picking for the first time yesterday and he loved it. I came home with about five pounds of apples, which I could probably eat in about two days if I served them in the form of this apple crisp.

When I first pulled the dish out of the oven the apples seemed a little dried out and I was bummed, thinking it was a bust. After it had cooled for a bit, though, they had softened and were perfect.

Jackson likes apples but when I gave him a bowl of this he just ate the topping and signed for more. I don’t blame him.

Paleo Apple Crisp

  • 3-4 medium apples
  • 1 1/4 cups almond meal
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tbs cinnamon plus a little more for sprinkling
  • 3 tbs maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Core, peel and slice the apples and layer them in an 8×8 baking dish. Lightly sprinkle them with cinnamon. In a glass bowl add the coconut oil and maple syrup and microwave for 45 seconds to a minute, until it’s completely melted. Then add the almond meal, coconut flour, cinnamon and salt. Spread the topping over the apples and bake for 50 minutes.


Paleo Sweet Potato Pie Muffins

Adapted from Civilized Caveman’s Pumpkin pie muffins.

You can use canned pumpkin too but lately I’ve been baking sweet potatoes in the oven and using that instead. The baby loves them too!

Sweet Potato Pie Muffins (Paleo)

In a food processor put:

3/4 cup baked/mashed/boiled sweet potato
1 Tbsp cinnamon
6 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup honey

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Full muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes


Single Serving Coconut Oil Chocolate Frosting or Coconut Oil Chocolate Truffles (Paleo)

You could top a single serving mug cake with this as frosting at room temperature or you could chill for a bit and roll into balls for truffles. Or you could just eat it with a spoon as a snack like I do!

Single Serving Coconut Oil Chocolate Frosting / Truffles

2 Tbsp coconut oil, softened but still solid
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 packets stevia

optional: vanilla, mix-ins such as mini chocolate chips, raisins, chopped almonds

Mix the coconut oil, cocoa powder and stevia vigorously until it is very smooth and well combined. Spread it on a treat as a frosting or chill it then roll it into balls for truffles. Truffles with mini chocolate chips rolled in almond flour would be delicious! Mine never lasts long enough to chill, I just spoon it into my face immediately.
