Soul Food Saturday #42

So many of us start off the New Year with resolutions to eat healthier. So we gather recipes to fit those needs. This recipe is perfect for any occasion, because no one would ever know it's supposed to be a healthier version. And isn't that exactly what we want? To have a dessert you don't feel guilty about eating? Or better yet ones you feel good about giving your children! Grab a spoon and a friend we're having a healthy dessert.

Paleo Apple Crisp
5 medium apples, cored, seeded chopped
1 1/2 cups of almond meal
1 tbs of cinnamon
3 tbs honey, melted
4 tbs coconut oil, melted
Pinch of salt
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbs coconut sugar

Preheat oven to 300 degrees
In a medium bowl add chopped apples and lemon juice. Toss lightly to combine. In a 8x8 baking dish add apples in a single layer. In a separate bowl mix together the almond meal, cinnamon, melted honey, melted coconut oil and salt. Spread the crumble topping over the apples, then evenly sprinkle the coconut sugar on top. Bake for 50 minutes. Whether you top it with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or have it plain it's sure to please ones on a Paleo friendly diet or not. Enjoy! *NOTE* Almond meal can be found in the specialty baking aisle at your grocery store. Or sometimes in the gluten free section too.
