Just look at that plate of apple crisp! It gets the senses going. It looks good, tastes yummy, and baked apples are one the best smells ever. I think so anyway!
This recipe makes a full casserole dish so it’s easy to share with guests or just eat throughout the day. Yep, I might have been doing that.
When I bake apples in a crisp or pie I like to use a variety of baking apples. It gives the finished dish more flavors to enjoy. I used golden delicious and Fuji apples in this recipe.
I added gelatin protein in this recipe to add extra nutrition and it helps the crumble to have a crispier texture. The gelatin is optional in the recipe but it you might lose a little of the crispiness if you decide not to use it.
If you’re following Trim Healthy Mama this falls in the Crossover category and you’ll want to use Granny Smith apples, they’re not so sweet. Not following THM and would like to use regular sweetener, just switch out the erythritol and stevia for sugar or evaporated cane syrup.Print

- Category: Dessert
1 cup blanched almond flour
1 cup golden flax meal
3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup gelatin (protein powder), optional but does help give a crispy texture and adds protein.
1/4 cup erythritol, or erythritol based sweetener blend
1/4 teaspoon stevia (omit if using a sweetener blend)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon mineral salt
Preheat oven to 375°. Get out a baking pan and aluminum foil.
Peel and thinly slice apples. Place apples in baking pan. Mix 2 tablespoons sweetener with the 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle over apples.
Mix almond flour, golden flax meal, sweetener, gelatin, baking powder, salt together and then mix in melted coconut oil. Crumble mixture evenly over apples.
Bake uncovered for 25 minutes and then remove from oven. Lower oven temperature to 325°. Cover with aluminum foil (shiny side up). Bake for 15 more minutes.
Apples should be tender and the crisp should be golden brown.
*I like to use at least 2 different types of apple to get more flavor like Golden Delicious and Fuji. Look for apples that are listed as being good in baking. Use Granny Smith apples if you are following THM.
