Recipe Notes

  • Plan to let the apple crisp sit about 15 minutes or so before serving. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Toss the apples with the almond meal and cinnamon and spread in a single layer in a greased 13x9-inch baking dish.
  2. Whisk the coconut oil and honey together until smooth. Place the rolled oats, pecans, almond meal, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Add the coconut oil and honey mixture. Stir to combine.
  3. Pour the oat mixture over the apples to cover them evenly. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 30 to 40 minutes until the topping is browning slightly. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes.
