Healthy Baked Apple Crisp Dessert

I have always loved a good apple crisp, but I wanted to make something that would be delicious yet not quite so loaded with sugar!  Or at least be a more "clean" type of sugar (i.e. honey and maple syrup).  So after looking at tons of recipes, I'm attempting to build my own version of a Healthy Apple Crisp!!

First, you've got to have a base of green apples!  They're my favorite and any Apple Crisp must have a "tart" base!!

  • 5-7 green apples
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp of cinnamon (I love cinnamon, so more is always better for me!)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

Crumb Topping
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (I told you I love this stuff)
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-4 Tbsp honey (per your desired sweetness)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Peel and core the apples ( I have an Apple, Peeler, Corer, Slicer from Pampered Chef that I used and it worked awesome!!).  If you don't have one of those cool gadgets, then peel and core apple and slice in thin slices after cutting apple in half!
  3. Coat the apples with the cinnamon, nutmeg and maple syrup and pour into a 9 x 9 dish.
  4. In a medium bowl combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and 
  5. salt together and stir.  
  6. Combine coconut oil and honey together and then add to the dry mixture.  Make sure they are completely combined together.  
  7. Top the apple mixture with the crumb topping!
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 30-40 minutes or until topping is browned.  
Serve warm (and yes, we're going to put some vanilla ice cream on top!)
