Apple Crisp!

IMG_3143

Since I’ve been off sugar I haven’t had anything really sweet, but today I wanted a little something so I threw this together and it was delicious. Gluten free and diabetics will love me for this one.

Ingredients:

6 apples (your choice) peeled and thinly sliced. I used Gala.

1/4 butter, melted

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1/2 cup Coconut Crystals or sugar, but the Coconut Crystals are better for you and low glycemic.

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 cup Oatmeal ( use gluten free if you have allergies), not quick cooking.

1/2 cup brown rice flour, (you can use regular white or wheat flour)

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Before you melt your butter, take it and butter the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking dish. Combine your butter and coconut oil in a small saucepan; heat just until melted. Meanwhile combine your coconut crystals and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons into your apples and stir to coat. Now place your apples into your butter pan. In the same bowl as your cinnamon and sugar mixture place your oatmeal, flour, and pecans. Stir to combine. Take your melted butter and coconut oil mixture and pour it over your oatmeal mixture and stir until it is coated and crumbly. Evenly distribute your crumb mixture on top of your apples. If you feel so inclined you may dot the top with a little more butter. I felt so inclined! Ha! Ha! Now bake it at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. This is delicious by itself but I’m sure vanilla ice cream would send it over the top!

Enjoy!
