This apple crisp has all of the flavor but NONE of the sugar. All of the sugar in this recipe comes naturally. Who needs sugar when you have fruit as sweet as candy and pure maple syrup involved.
No Added Sugar Apple Crisp
4 servings | 60 minutes
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup oats
2 tbsp flour (for paleo use almond flour)
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup pecans, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 375. Spray an 8x8 dish with non stick spray. I used a disposable foil pan but a glass 8x8 dish works as well.
Peel, core and dice the apples. Place the diced apples in a large bowl. I used a pairing knife but there's products out there that make this step so much easier!
To the bowl of apples add the water, 1 tbsp pure maple syrup and 1 tsp cinnamon. Mix to combine.
Add apples to the pan.
In the same bowl the apples were in, combine oats, flour, 3 tbsp pure maple syrup, coconut oil, pecans, cinnamon, salt and vanilla. Stir to combine.
Arrange the crumble topping over the apples. Spray the top with non stick spray.
Cover the apple crisp with tin foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 20 minutes or until the top starts to brown nicely.
Serve warm with a melting scoop of vanilla ice cream!
