Maple Pecan Apple Crisp

Maple Pecan Apple Crisp

Ingredients for the Apple Part:

5-6 medium pink lady or granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced to about 1/4 inch thickness

1-2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ginger


Ingredients for the "Crisp" Part (Topping):

1/3 cup coconut oil

1 cup raw pecans

3/4 cup almond flour

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice



Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples with the spices, then put the apples in a 9 or 10 inch pie or baking dish and set aside.

For the crisp topping, put all the ingredients in a food processor and process or pulse until the pecans are finely ground and a paste is created. Spread the topping all over the apples to fully cover and bake for 50-60 minutes or until the apples are bubbly and the topping is brown and crisp.

Let sit for at least 30 minutes to cool down before serving warm. Enjoy!
