Healthy Apple Crisp

Healthy Apple Crisp.

New recipe for you today which I did last night on my Facebook Live. Crazy….you’re having a great chat with people and your technology crashes. I really can’t complain though. I’ve done around 20 Facebook Live Broadcasts and that was the first that crashed.

Anyways…enough about that because you want the recipe…

This will make six 8 eight ounce mason jars, depending on the size you cut your apples.

For Apple Layer:
6 sour-sweet apples, like MacIntosh or Granny Smith. Peeled and chopped into small pieces
Half a lemon squeezed TBS fresh squeezed lemon
1-2 tsp of sweetener of your choice (I used Splenda – you can use Stevia or whatever you like)
1-2 tsp cinnamon or apple pie spice (more if you like)
2 caps of butter extract

I taste test the apples to see if they need more cinnamon or butter extract.

For Crisp:

1/2 cup  oats (you can add hemp seeds, Chia seeds, nuts, oat bran to bump up the texture and fiber )
1/4 cup brown sugar Splenda (or sweetener of your choice)
2 tsp cinnamon or apple pie spice (more if you like!)
5 caps of butter extract (more if you like)
5- tsp Grass fed butter (KerryGold) or ghee/clarified butter.

Preheat oven to 350°

Add lemon to the apples as you cut them in a large bowl. Add the spice and sweetener the apples and mix to coat.

Pack apples into the Mason jars to the top.

Put all the crisp ingredients into a bowl and using your fingers or a fork kneed the butter through the mixture until it resembles crumbles. Top each Mason jar with the crumple crisp mixture. Put the leftover crumble on a line baking sheet.

Bake the apple crisp for 30-35 minutes until the crisp on the top is golden brown. Bake the crumbly crisp on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes until it is golden brown.

Remove from the oven and let the apple crisp sit for 10 minutes.

Options:
-you can add in protein powder to your oat mix (which I did!)

-you can use pre flavored oatmeal – I used OatFit. Look for a low sugar and around 100 cal per package and under 5 grams of sugar!! Read the label

-instead of regular butter -you have to use grass fed butter or clarified butter. If you don’t have those available, then you can use coconut oil

Enjoy!!
