This is my husbands absolute favorite dessert of all time. He asks me to make this every week when we are home for the holidays! I don’t mind making it because it’s super easy, makes my house smell amazing, and it’s healthy!! I always top it over vanilla ice cream for him, but I also like to to eat it by itself, over yogurt, and even oatmeal. Possibilities are endless here! It’s so good you’ll want to put it on everything!
6 Granny smith apples
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup almond flour
1 tsp tapioca starch
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup shredded coconut flakes
pinch of salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup shaved almonds
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup light brown sugar
(you could also add things like raisins, craisins, dates, or other dried fruits)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Peal the apples and chop into small cubes. Place the apples in a bowl, and cover with lemon juice. This will not only add to flavor but keep the apples from turning brown.
Add the tapioca starch, maple syrup, and vanilla.
In another larger mixing bowl, add your oats, almond flour, shaved almonds, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, walnuts, melted coconut oil, and pinch of salt.
In a 8×10 baking dish, spread out the apples. Cut the butter into small cubes and drop evenly on top of the apples. Then sprinkle with the chia seeds, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger evenly as well.
Finally, top the apples with the crumble.
Place the dish in the oven for 35 minutes. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! This dessert is fall in a bowl!
