*I shared the Healthy AF Apple Crisp recipe in December 2019 Beachside Resident issue.
It’s so delicious and incase you missed it, here it is! This recipe is easy, minimal ingredients, and a healthy dessert option.
3-4 peeled and chopped Apples (3 Granny Smith, 1 Honeycrisp)
½ cup Cashew Butter
½ cup of Maple Syrup
2 cups of Rolled Oats
Sprinkle in Hemp Seeds, Flax Seed & Chia Seeds
Cinnamon and Sea Salt
First, open your windows and let the Florida cool, fake winter air creep in; you may need to turn on the AC to pretend. Turn on your Bluetooth speakers and put on some music. For this dish, I selected Led Zeppelin “Going To California.” Next, wash your apples. You never know who just scratched their butt and then groped your apple before deciding on the one next to it. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Peel and chop the apples. I save all of my peels and discarded produce waste for compost. Anyway, in one bowl, mix the apples, ¼ cup of maple syrup, ½ cup of oats, ¼ cup of cashew butter and stir; place in a pie-baking dish. For the topping, put the remaining cashew butter, oats, maple syrup and sprinkle in hemp seeds, flax seed, chia seeds, cinnamon, and sea salt in a bowl and stir. Load this pile of festive delightfulness on top of the apples. Scrape every morsel out of that bowl, and then proceed to licking the bowl. Place in the over and check on it after 20 minutes to ensure that it is getting golden and bubbling. You may need to leave it in for another 5-10 minutes depending on if it needs to get more golden or not. Sometimes, depending on the size of the apple chunks or the oven, time can range. I am the winging it type of kitchen guru. I also add extra of everything. I like to keep things saucy. Don’t hesitate to add extra cashew butter and maple… just keep them equal parts. This can be served with vanilla ice cream and served as a dessert, or you can have this for breakfast because it is healthy AF. It is also gluten-free and dairy-free. Enjoy!
