Two Fall Apple Recipes
It’s apple picking season! And with that comes the struggle of finding different things to do with apples after you’ve come home with a bushel. I usually eat apples with peanut butter as a snack or have small apple slices in salads, but I wanted to try to diversify my apple repertoire. These two recipes are straightforward and get me excited about Fall, so I hope you enjoy.
Vegan and Gluten Free Apple Crumble
This apple crumble is halfway between an apple crumble and apple pie. It’s simple to make and satisfies my sweet tooth.
¾ cup melted coconut oil
1 ½ cups of gluten free measure for measure flour
1 cup of brown sugar
½ teaspoon of nutmeg
½ teaspoon of salt
3-6 apples (depending on how much you’d like to make) (you can also pre-peel them)
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°F
Chop apples into thin wedges and set aside
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together gluten free flour, brown sugar and salt. Stir in melted coconut oil and mix until the dough mixture is similar to that of wet sand.
Add apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice into a baking dish and mix to spread spices. Spread evenly in dish and add the dough mixture on top, patting it down to even it out.
Bake for 50 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream and add some pecans for an extra crunch!
If you need an easy-to-make sweet snack, try making these apple chips! They are great to take with you on the go for a quick pick me up throughout the day.
