gluten free apple crisp

Amen for apple season! Seriously, one of my favorite parts of the year. I really wish we had more orchards in Utah! Apples are so awesome, versatile, eat plan, with dip, make applesauce, apple pie, drinks, anything your mind can think up, you can add apple to it to increase the moisture and density. My all time favorite, apple crisp. Mmmm, not much better in the world than a hot bowl of fresh homemade apple crisp al a mode. The perfect blend of sweet and crisp. I am salivating already!

imageIn a large bowl, place 5-6 washed, peeled, cored and cubed or sliced apples (My favorites are Gala or Honeycrisp). Toss the apples with 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and sprinkle on with cinnamon sugar (I use Splenda and cinnamon with a 2:1 ratio), until all apples are lightly and evenly coated. Now toss the apples with 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of gluten free all purpose flour (to absorbs the extra juices), and mix well. Put this mixture into a greased 9×9 in pan.

Preheat your oven to 375*

In a glass measuring cup melt 1/4 cup coconut oil, then add 1/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour, 1/2 cup gluten free oats, and 1/2 crushed cinnamon rice chex cereal. Mix well (will be crumbly), and pour on top of the apples, pat down so there is an even layer of the crisp. Bake for 30-35minutes. Try not to inhale it all in one sitting (;

Can a smell it already?

Enjoy! (:
