Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • The fruit
  • 4 large apples, peeled, cored and cut into slices
  • ½ lemon, squeezed over the apples
  • ½ cup of raisins (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of cardamom
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • The crisp
  • ½ cup of almond flour
  • ½ cup of almond butter
  • ½ cup of chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup of chopped walnuts
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • ¼ cup of ghee or coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and pick out a beautiful pie plate or 9x9 baking dish and lightly oil it. First, make the fruit filling by tossing the apples with the lemon juice in a mediumish bowl. Sprinkle in the raisins and spices and toss till combined then drizzle in the honey and stir till well incorporated. Arrange the apple slices in your baking vessel and set aside till you get the topping made.
  2. To make the topping, stir the flour, pecans, walnus, salt and cinnamon together till it is all blended nicely. While stirring this mix, slowly add your melted butter, then the honey till the mixture gets clumpy. Lastly, stir in your pure vanilla to make your nose dance.
  3. Pour the crumble topping over the apples and pat down so it fills the crevasses of the apples.
  4. Tuck in the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes till the topping is just starting to get golden and a knife easily slips into the apples. Try not to buzz about at the end of the baking as honey and nuts burn quickly. Serve with ice cream or yogurt. (Coconut bliss is my fav!)
