Recipe: Paleo Apple Crisp

March 1, 2018

Happy March! Guys, where is 2018 going. January was the slowest month of my life but February went so fast I'm pretty sure I didn't get anything done. But here we are, March, the month of flowers, hopefully more sunshine and delicious desserts. 

It's no secret I love dessert. Anything with cinnamon and vanilla ice cream and I am sold. I recently had an apple crisp when Adam and I were out to dinner and it was the best thing I've ever tasted. The cold ice cream mixed with the sweet caramel-y apple was the best. 

I knew I had to make it. Cue, the paleo apple crisp. While it's not as sweet as the restaurant processed sugar crisp, this one will satisfy any sweet-tooth without the guilt. 

My one warning, this isn't as good the second day because it gets a little mushy. Make it and eat it all, I promise me, you'll want too! 

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 5 12 cups peeled, chopped apples

  • 3/4 cups almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • small pinch (very small!) salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

How to Make: 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the maple syrup, lemon juice, nutmeg and salt together in a large bowl. 
  3. Peel and cut the apples. Place the apples in the maple syrup mixture and stir well until apples are coated. Place the apple mixture in an 8x8 glass pan.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl combine the almond flour, coconut flour and cinnamon. Add coconut oil, maple syrup and salt. 
  5. Pulse the walnuts in a food processor until they are in small pieces. Stir the nuts into the topping mixture.
  6. Drop the topping over the apples. 
  7. Bake for 40-50 minutes until the topping is brown and crisp and bubbling. If the nuts start to burn, cover with foil.
  8. Let cool, scoop out some NadaMoo vanilla ice cream and enjoy! 

Happy Thursday friends! We're only one day away from the weekend!
