Awesome Apple Crisp – Gluten Free*
By Susan Arruda
YIELD: 9 servings
4 med-large apples cored, peeled and evenly cut. I chose to keep the peel on for added fiber.
Juice of 1/2 Lemon (approx.2-3 tbsp.)
3/4 cup + 1 tbsp. rolled oats
1/3 cup + 1 tbsp. spelt flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar (use organic to avoid GMOs)
Pour lemon juice onto the apples and mix thoroughly.
Spread the apple mixture into a 9 inch X 13 inch pan.
Cut the butter into the combined dry ingredients using a fork or dough blender, until crumbly.
Spread the oats crumble mixture evenly over the diced prepared apples.
Bake at 350 for approx. 25 minutes until topping is golden crisp and apples are softened.
*To make this recipe gluten free, use gluten free/uncontaminated rolled oats and replace the spelt flour with almond flour/meal, or choice gluten free flour.
Serve hot (although also delicious served cold or at room temperature) and sprinkle with additional cinnamon, if desired. Top with frozen vanilla yogurt, frozen Greek yogurt, or plain Greek yogurt.
