Apple Crisp, Gluten Free
I have to be honest, this is not my recipe. I am sharing it on my page because I am in love with the simplicity of making this wholesome and amazingly delicious dessert. Well, sometimes dessert. Being the rebel that I am, I have absolutely served it for breakfast more than once. It's all healthy stuff. Why not serve it up to start your day?
Enough teasing, I'm going to share the recipe with the (very few) changes I made, but you should check out the original. There are even luscious pictures to lure you in further on the original post.
Know what else? Tonight I tried it with fresh cherries. It worked beautifully.
Gluten Free Apple Crisp
7ish apples, unpeeled, cored and chopped (or enough cherries to adequately fill the bottom of your baking dish- you judge how high they should pile for a healthy serving!)
4ish tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 c fresh cranberries (if you are using apples- but optional still)
1/2 c maple syrup- use the real thing
1/4 c chopped raw pumpkin seeds
1 tsp ground cinnamon (only 1/2 tsp for cherry crisp)
1 c quinoa flakes
1/2 c butter flavored Spectrum shortening or Soy Free Earth Balance margarine
