Uhhhh I’m so annoyed at myself! I accidentally deleted some photos I had taken when I had made some slow cooker recipes! I was going through the camera trying to make more space and well I ended up accidentally deleting photos I shouldn’t have! I was cursing myself afterwards and I usually save everything to my laptop first but this time of course I didn’t do that!
Anyway I’ll get over it….. eventually.
Onto something more positive. It’s apple season here in Michigan and last weekend husband bought some apples from the Farmers Market and a couple of them were still sitting in the fridge waiting to be used so I decided to make some apple crumble and be done with them. I’m not a big baker, I’ll do it every now and then, although I wouldn’t exactly call this recipe baking since it’s only a few ingredients thrown together but the end result was AMAZING and even passed husband’s test of approval ;)
Paleo Apple Crumble
- 3-4 apples (something like Gala or Honeycrisp), washed.
- 2 cups of almond flour/almond meal. (this one is good).
- 1/2 – 1 Tbsp vanilla extract or vanilla paste (I used vanilla powder). (I use this one).
- 1 tsp cinnamon (plus more for topping).
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg.
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves.
- 1/4 tsp of ground ginger.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil or ghee, melted.
- 1/4 cup raw honey.
- 1/4 cup of sliced almonds.
- 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice.
- Pinch of sea salt.
Preheat your oven to 175C/350F.
Line a baking dish with parchment paper. I used a 21x21cm/8×8″ glass baking dish.
Fill a mixing bowl with water and add in the lemon juice.
Core, peel and cut the apples into thin-ish slices.
In another mixing bowl add in the almond flour.
Next add in the cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and sea salt.
Mix everything together.
In another mixing bowl, mix together the coconut oil/ghee, raw honey, vanilla extract/paste.
Mix your wet ingredients into the dry.
Next drain your apples from the water they’ve been sitting in, rinse and pat dry.
Place sliced apples on the bottom of your baking dish.
Using your hands, sprinkle the crumble over the top of the apples.
Add your sliced almonds on top.
Cover the top with foil then place in the middle rack of the oven to bake for 50mins.
Remove the foil and bake for another 10-12 minutes until the top browns and crisps.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with some more cinnamon.
Serve warm and enjoy! (You can top with some coconut/heavy whipped cream, if desired).
