I'm changing things up a bit, starting with this post.
Join our BestYOU community for regular blogs, inspiration posts, and for the first time, I'm sharing a recipe.
I hope you enjoy this delicious and healthy apple crisp recipe I've created since I've been helping my mom, who recently broke her ankle. Trying to make tasty and healthy food to aid in her healing process, I adapted an old recipe (eliminating the sugar and flour, after trying to use half the sugar). Healthy can definitely be tasty - Enjoy!
Apple Crisp Recipe:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees (bake for 40 -45 minutes)
6 cups of Macintosh or other tart apples cut thin in smile shaped slices (with skin on)
Place apple slices in 2-3 inch high baking dish, leaving one inch for topping
Squeeze 1/2 - 1 fresh lemon over the apples (lime can be substituted)
*1/3 cup brown sugar is half the original recipe - if using no sugar,
add 1 tablespoon water
Mix with a large spoon in a separate bowl:
Quick cooking oats - approximately 1 1/2 cups
Ghee (clarified butter) - enough to wet the oats - approximately 1/3-1/2 cup
Cinnamon to taste - I add liberally - I use 2-3 teaspoons
Nutmeg - 1 teaspoon
Spoon the topping over the apples
Drizzle Grade A Maple Syrup over all
This recipe can easily be adjusted for more or fewer apples. Just make sure to leave 1 inch of space in the baking dish for the topping.
Serve warm in a bowl with almond milk for a nutritious treat!
