I love fruit, especially apples. Usually I eat an apple a day. Yet in the winter, I don’t always want to eat an apple. I want to bake with apples. I want a WARM dessert after dinner with a hot cup of tea. This is exactly is what I did last night after making this recipe and it was the perfect treat for a cold January night. I am pretty sure I will be doing the same again tonight with the leftovers!
This crisp is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth you may have without being overly sweet. The apples and blackberries in this dessert provide a plethora of vitamins including Vitamins A, C, E and K. Both apples and blackberries are also fantastic sources of dietary fiber. Almond flour adds in some protein while flaxseed meal offers up some Omega 3 fatty acids to the dish. Not bad, eh? Go ahead, treat yourself!
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 Tbsp. flaxseed meal
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. sea salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the apples, blackberries, 1/2 cup coconut sugar and lemon juice into a large bowl and mix thoroughly. In a medium size bowl, add in the almond flour, 1/2 cup coconut sugar, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon, flaxseed meal and sea salt. Use a spoon to mix ingredients well.
In a 9 x 13 glass baking dish, spread the layer of fruit on the bottom of the dish.
Next spread the topping layer over the fruit evenly. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
