A great recipe to use up those wrinkled apples you may have left over. It is also a healthy variation on a dessert that normally uses lots of sugar and bleached flower.

Apple Crisp

There are many recipes for apple crisp, but they generally only vary slightly. I do not like the overly sweet taste of fruit desserts, so I adapted an existing one to suit my preference. Also, if you do not like, or use, refined products such as bleached flour and white sugar, you will like this recipe.


6 diced apples
1/3 cup of cold water
3 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar
Juice from two lemons
½ cup of maple sugar
½ cup of amaranth flour
½ cup oats
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon of organic apple pie spice (you can make your own blend with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves)
5 table spoons Ghee (clarified butter), softened
Olive oil spray


Preheat your oven to 350 F and lightly coat a 13x9 inch glass baking pan with olive oil spray. Combine the water, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar with the apples to coat them nicely. Spread the apples evenly into your baking pan. In a bowl, mix the sugar, flour, oats, walnuts, and spice. Add your softened clarified butter and work it in until the mixture resembles crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly on to your apples and bake for 35 to 45 minutes.

This looks and sounds delicious. I am allergic to cinnamon but am sure I could develop my own flavors.
