Apple Crisp with Molasses Drizzle


2012/10/22 by nikkiledford

The Fall weather has been AMAZING! Great poofy clouds and good temperatures beckoned me outdoors this week. I decided to explore the hills of San Clemente and I found these awesome dried-up POOFY FLOWERS! So neat looking!

For this recipe I thought I’d divert away from pumpkin to pay attention to another great Fall-ish flavor… APPLE!

This a super tasty grain-free crisp recipe. It’s also super easy and great for entertaining.

Great with some Vanilla Coconut Bliss

Apple Crisp with Molasses Drizzle

8 small/medium apples (peeled, cored, and sliced)
2 c. almond flour
1/4 c. flax meal
2 Tbsp. cinnamon, plus 1 tsp.
1 Tbsp. ground ginger
1/2 c. whole pecans
1/4 c. butter, ghee, or coconut oil, cut into cubes
1/4 c. golden raisins
1/4 c. coconut sugar (optional)
1 tsp salt
1/4 c. molasses

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a large bowl, combine apples with raisins, 1 tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle of salt. Spread evenly into a 9 x 13 dish.
  3. In the same bowl, mix together almond flour, sugar, spices, salt, and flax.
  4. In a food processor, pulse cold butter (or oil) with pecans until large gravel texture.
  5. Add pecan/butter crumble to the flour mix and combine.
  6. Spread over apples and sprinkle with some chopped pecans.
  7. Drizzle molasses over the crisp and then bake for 20 mins until apples are soft.

  1. Mmmmmm… This sounds so good. Now I just need a food processor.

      The food processor isn’t required. You could also just finely chop the pecans and then dice the butter into small pieces and then mix into the flour 🙂

    sounds so good! Any chance we could have a sample? 🙂

One of the highlights from #blueberryparty weekend was this Almond Butter and Blueberry Bread Pudding.

Peace, Love, and Kale... and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me and sweet baby Atlas. I got out of the house this morning and went straight to yoga and then to get my fav smoothie from @projectjuice Let the birthday festivities begin! My little man turns ONE on Monday and we are celebrating with a blueberry picnic tomorrow. Complete with Mango Blueberry Salsa and blue corn chips. The first of many yummy Blueberry-themed noms. 
#blueberryparty #atlasjacobledford #yearoneofatlas MOTHERHOOD// I'm a little embarrassed at the lack of impressive food posts lately.
As Atlas has begun to eat more food, I find myself just munching on things while I prepare his meals, never really sitting down to my own. Breakfast is some eggs and berries. Lunch, some deli meat and @primalkitchenfoods mayo with a banana and almond butter. Dinner usually includes a quickly grilled piece of meat atop some lettuce greens and any chopped veggies and quick dressing. It's not glamorous at all, definitely not "Instagram worthy".
It's just real life right now and I'm hoping to get into a groove pretty soon and get back to  creating mealtimes instead of surviving them. I mean "surviving" in the best possible way. My kid loves to eat real healthy foods and it's so fun to explore this new part of his day. My creativity is taking a big hit though and I long for some real thoughtful meals at my dinner table with my main man.
Until then sausage/salsa/lettuce wraps will do.
