A healthy dessert you’ll love this winter…

We admit it. We indulge in sweet treats now and then.

We especially love wintery evenings that are perfect for filling the house with a delicious, “baking-yummy-dessert” aroma… and then sharing it with our favorite people.

So we thought we’d share a healthy dessert recipe with you!

Apple-Crisp

Raw-Persimmon-Apple-Crisp1Ingredients:

Filling:
6 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Topping:

1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup gluten-free whole oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoons unsalted butter

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the apples, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 tablespoons honey, and lemon juice. Stir together until apples are coated evenly.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, oats, salt, remaining cinnamon, and pecans.
4. Use a fork or your fingers (it’s messy, but effective) to mix in the remaining honey and butter, until the topping has a crumbly consistency.
5. Arrange the apples into a 9-inch pie dish or baking dish. Cover with the crumble topping.
6. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
7. Apple crisp is best served immediately, when it’s warm. It can also be served at room temperature. Store, covered, in the refrigerator up to four days.
Serves 4 to 6
