Initially I planned to post this recipe when the trees were brimming with juicy apples during the peak of apple season, but life happens and a giant pile of school work can get in the way of the recipe editing/posting schedule–but better late then never, I bring you a most delicious, golden, crumbly, and sweet apple crisp. In this nutritious yet sweet and buttery apple crisp, layers of juicy apple slices are baked to soft perfection and coated in a warm maple-butter sauce that is topped with a brown sugar and cinnamon crumble. It is sweet, buttery, slightly salty, and warming–perfect for the cold days of winter.
The recipe prep only takes a bit of apple slicing and an assembling of the topping ingredients. Bake it in the oven and enjoy the aroma as the kitchen begins to smell like everything wonderful about autumn–maple syrup, cinnamon, baked apples. It tastes as divine as its fragrant, warming aroma, and is a delicious holiday dessert.
- 8 peeled and sliced apples
- 1 TBSP. cinnamon
- 1 and 1/2 cups of brown sugar
- 1 cup GF all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp. pink salt
- 1 TBSP. maple syrup + 1/2 TBSP. lemon juice
- Slice apples and add to a deep baking dish. Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium-sized mixing bowl and set aside. Melt oil and add the rest of the wet ingredients. Pour the melted mixture into the dry ingredients and mix. Top the sliced apples with this crumble mixture and bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until the crumble becomes golden and apples are tender.
