You’re the Apple of my eye

I couldn’t resist leading in with the cute valentine stickers for fruit. So, just in case you need a last minute gift idea ;-).

And for your dining pleasure, a recipe for apple crisp.


4 Medium apples, sliced (about 4 cups)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup Whole Spelt or Wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut oil
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 375 F. Grease an 8 x 8 inch pan lightly with coconut oil and fill with the sliced apples.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together. Mash the coconut oil into this with a fork (or just stir it in if your house is warmer than mine 🙂 ).

Drizzle 1 or 2 Tablespoons of the honey over the apple slices and work the remaining honey into the topping mixture with a fork.

Spread the topping over the apples – just kind of mush it down with your hands or a spoon, or combination thereof.

Bake for 30 minutes until the topping is golden and crisp.

Adapted from Betty Crocker’s New Cookbook. I have a few general (non-vegan/vegetarian) cookbooks that I like to keep around as a reference and resource for recipes to adapt and this is one of them.

Apple Crisp is really Melissa’s area of expertise, but this turned out so well I decided to post it anyway. Maybe I’ll get her to post her fat free version at a later date ;-).
