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? 🙂

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
