I love desserts, I always want something a little sweet after dinner. But what fun is it to only have dessert after dinner? Wouldn’t it be nice to have with lunch or even for breakfast. I like to make my dessert recipes with natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup or sometimes I will use cane sugar depending on the recipe. With the ingredients I often use in my recipes my desserts are usually healthy enough to eat even for breakfast. Yesterday my lobster and I decided we wanted dessert for breakfast so I opened up my kitchen cupboards and created a Maple Apple Crisp.
Maple Apple Crisp
Preheat oven to 350
- 7-9 apples peeled, cored and sliced (I use Macintosh)
- 1/8 cup cane sugar
- 1 Tbsp melted butter (replace with coconut oil for dairy free)
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp lemon juice
Mix ingredients together until apples are coated in butter mixture and put in baking dish ( I use an 8×8 size). In a separate bowl add ingredients for the topping.
- 1 cup oats
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
Mix topping ingredients together until well blended and crumbly. Sprinkle on top of apples.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve on its own or in a bowl with milk!
Of course I completely forgot to take any pictures of the end result because I was so excited about the ghost walk we had booked for later in the evening. Presented by Ghost Walks my lobster and I were ready for a night of history and ghosts stories
We were not disappointed. It was the first time we had been on a ghost walk and it was amazing. We had a 90 minute tour of the building that consisted of history lessons and stories of ghost activity within the building.
Definitely something to try again next year. For now that is two more items off the Fall Fun Activity List.
