I LOVE FRUITS!
Fruits are really good for you because they are a natural source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. They contain nutrients that are important for our body and help with the proper functioning of the digestive tract. If I could eat fruits all day, I would. Since fruits have fructose in them, having a lot of it would create some health issues, at least long-term. Therefore, as for anything else we eat, moderation is always key. I usually have at least two to three servings of fruit per day.
When I go grocery shopping I always load my shopping basket with a variety of fruit especially if they are running a special. What I cannot use within 3 or 4 days I usually freeze for my smoothies later.
Apples seem to be lasting longer then 4 days, if kept in the refrigerator.
I had 4 apples in my refrigerator and I wanted to use them for baking but never found the time to do it. So today, I decided to just make a quick and easy apple crumble with them. It turned out great and I made it Gluten Free!
- 3/4 Stick of unsalted Butter
- 4 Apples of your choice (I like Gala)
- 4 Tbsp Raw Honey
- 1 Tbsp Coconut Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 drops Lemon Essential Oil
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 Tsp Arrowroot flour
- 1/2 Cup Sprouted Brown Rice Flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 Cup Almond Flour
- 1/4 Cup Flax Flour
- 1/4 Coconut Flour
- 1/2 Cup Chopped Almonds
Start with apples by removing the skin and cutting them in cubes. Add to them the lemon juice, lemon essential oil, 2 tablespoons of honey, vanilla extract and mix well. (if you like cinnamon you can add a pinch) Add the arrowroot flour and mix.
Grease the bottom of a pie pan with coconut oil, pour the apple mixture in it and compact it a little bit.
For the top I start with the butter at room temperature then I add all the flours, the salt, the cinnamon and the remaining honey. Mix lightly so that it looks like crumble. Now add the chopped almonds to it and mix lightly. Poor this on top of the apples in the pan and sprinkle it with 1 tbsp of coconut sugar.
Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes
Enjoy while it is still warm.
