Fall. *Sigh 🙂 What a fun time of year! We’ve been floundering on tasty autumn treats like our Easy Peasy Pumpkin Squares and Pumpkin Scones, crafting cute Pumpkin Crafts and Terracotta Pot Trick or Treaters and now we think it’s time for apples to take center stage!
We brought in our gorgeous apple harvest and whipped up some Apple Crisp. Boy is it a tasty and healthy treat! Apple are a great source of fiber, help build your immune system, reactivate good gut bacteria and helps prevent cancer. Honey is rich in vitamins and minerals such as B6, iron and zinc. Organic pasture raised butter is a healthy fat and oats are also a fantastic source of fiber, have anti-cancerous properties and help with blood sugar. For brown sugar make sure you use pure brown sugar. If you aren’t careful it can simply be white, processed sugar mixed with molasses. We added a link below to the kind we like best. Top this yummy crisp with some Homemade Ice Cream or Sugar Free Whipped Cream and you are good. See? The perfect clean eating treat!
Tools for This Recipe:
6-8 apples, sliced
¼ cup of honey
1 cup whole wheat flour (if you need a gluten free alternative go here)
½ cup butter
1 cup nuts, chopped
1 cup rolled oats
¾ cup brown sugar
Add apples and honey to a sauce pan. On low heat cook until desired tenderness. Pour into a 9×13 pan and spread evenly. Add flour and butter to a mixing bowl. Combine with a pastry cutter until crumbly. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. Sprinkle on top of apples and bake at 375º until lightly browned. Serve with ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
