Grain-free Apple Crisp

I wanted to make a grain-free apple crisp, so this is what I came up with.  I will probably play around with the recipe some more, but it was still quite delicious especially with a scoop of banana ice cream as it made it a little sweeter. This recipe is only one serving size , but just double or triple the recipe if you want to make more!

Apple Crisp
Serves 1

First mix together in a bowl:
• 1 chopped medium apple
• 1 Tbsp lemon juice
• 2 tsp cinnamon
• 1 pinch of nutmeg

Then cook the apples covered on medium low in a skillet with a mixture of coconut oil and butter until soft, approx. 5-7 minutes. Stir occasionally. Optional: Drizzle some honey or maple syrup.

Pour the mixture into a serving size baking dish.

Ground up in a food processor:
• 1/4 cup almond
• 1/4 cup coconut

Pulse for 30 seconds. Sprinkle mixture onto the apples {you will have some toppings leftover}. Lightly spray or drizzle coconut oil or butter on top. Then bake at 350 degrees until golden. This took about 5-7 minutes.

Next time I want to try adding some dates or raisins and maybe even use a mixture of nuts instead of just almonds.  Also it is delicious with a scoop of banana ice cream.  Same recipe as my chocolate ice cream but without the cocoa powder.
