{Fall Re-Post} Paleo Apple CrumbleCrisp

I’m getting anxious for apple picking, so I thought I’d share one of my favorite apple recipes with you again. This was originally created last October. But it’s gonna be recreated again this year for shizzle.

________________

Does that look scrumb-tious or what?

Remember a few weeks ago when I went to Vermont? And we all went apple picking?

I promised you some apple recipes, didn’t I?

Well, here’s one. I made this one up with some inspiration from Bill and Hayley at The Food Lovers’ Primal Palate and Jen at Jen’s Gone Paleo

Paleo Apple CrumbleCrisp

Ingredients:

Filling

6 Medium-sized apples (I used macoun, mac and empire)

Cinnamon

Nutmeg

Ginger

Ground cloves

Arrowroot

CrispCrumble or CrumbleCrisp (whichever floats your boat)

1 1/2 cups almond meal

1/4 cup chia seeds

1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut

1/2 cup coconut oil

2 Tbsp raw honey

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped

1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped

Get all your ducks…er…apples in a row. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F.

Apples are so beautiful, don’t you think?

Peel your apples.

Save the peelings for delicious apple skin snacks later…or munch on them as you bake.

Core and slice your apples. Get rid of that seed and the core remnants…

Continue to cut the apples in the thin slices and layer in a pie dish greased with coconut oil. Sprinkle cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and arrowroot between each layer. I went heavy on the cinnamon and lighter on everything else. The arrowroot acts like cornstarch and give it that real apple pie filling texture.

When your pie dish is filled with apples, start prepping your crumblecrisp.

Combine all of your ingredients into a bowl and mix until crumbly. You may want to add the coconut oil little by little until the mixture starts to stick to itself.

Cover your apples with the crispycrumbly and cover the whole mess with foil. Bake covered in the oven for 60 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes–this will make sure that the apples are soft and the crumblycrispy is browned.

Remove from the oven.

Take a deep breath of cinnamon apple delicious.

Let it cool on a wire rack for a few minutes…

Then, enjoy!

I splurged (and cheated my cleanse…HEY, I’m human) and had some So Delicious vanilla bean Coconut Ice Cream…It’s dairy and soy-free and sweetened with agave. I would have bought the no-sugar added kind, but they didn’t have any…and I can’t eat CrumblyCrisple without some form of vanilla ice cream…

The Glamour Shot.

This was totally yum. I highly recommend you make it…today.

Things I would do differently next time: less nutmeg (but that’s just me), less chia seeds (maybe add a tablespoon) and I would add pecans to the crumble…

    New to the Paleo world and wondered where many of you buy your ingredients?

    • Allison September 26, 2012 at 4:15 PM #

      Hi Tammy! I get most of my ingredients at Whole Foods. But I know that you can get some of these things on Amazon– like coconut flour and almond flour. Tropical Traditions is a great online source for coconut oil and other coconut products too. Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Ok – how do you do it??? I was having a conversation with a non paleo friend about the apple crisp she was making from the apples she picked last weekend. I had gotten some too – and said to her, I wonder how I could make it paleo. So I had an idea and was going to try it – and then I come home, open my email me – AND THERE YOU ARE!!!!!!!!! Now, how can you read my mind like that ;)))))
    Can’t wait to make this!!!!

    Now that I got over the shock of that psychic moment we had, I have to ask…. can the chia seeds be eliminated? And can the apricots be eliminated? I’m trying to keep the sugar as low as possible – and i’m fairly sure the apples etc. will be sweet enough???

    • Allison September 27, 2012 at 10:31 AM #

      Hi Lilli! It’s true– I have psychic powers…or great minds just think alike 😉

      You could definitely eliminate the chia seeds.

      I used the apricots to give the crumble a chewier texture, but I’m sure it would be find without them. It would probably be sweet enough with just apples…

      Let me know how it turns out!

      • Lilli September 27, 2012 at 1:35 PM #

        OK – I’ll make it tonight – I like the idea of the chewiness of the apricots.. I just really have to cut back on the sugar – I’ve gained like 3 lbs and I feel huge and bloated!! lol… What do the chia seeds do by the way??

        And you know I will definitely let you know how it comes out 😀

        • Allison September 28, 2012 at 2:49 PM #

          Chia seeds are a plant source of omega 3 fatty acids…but honestly, they don’t do much. Sometimes they’re used in vegan recipes in the place of eggs because they gel up when put in water. I’m actually not sure why I added them to this recipe…probably because I have a one million pound bag of them in my pantry that I don’t use. Maybe I’ll list them as optional…
