My favorite gluten-free dessert

Apple Crumble
Print
Ingredients
  1. 8 organic apples
  2. Juice of 2 lemons
  3. Zest of 1 lemon
  4. 1 T arrow root powder
  5. 2 T Rapadura, Succanat, or coconut sugar
  6. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
For topping
  1. 3/4 cup (organic) roasted almonds or "Crispy Almonds" (soaked and dried)
  2. 3/4 cup arrowroot powder
  3. 6 T organic butter, softened
  4. ¼ cup Rapadura, Succanat, or coconut sugar
  5. ¼ tsp celtic sea salt
  6. 1-2 tsp vanilla extract
  7. ½ tsp cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Cut apples into slices or small chunks. (You want to be able to scoop up a bite with both apple and crumble, so cut the apples fit on your spoon). Toss apples with lemon juice and lemon zest.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together: arrowroot powder, sugar, and cinnamon then toss with apples. Pour the apple mixture into a buttered baking dish.
Crumble
  1. Put almonds in a food processor, spice or coffee grinder. (A high speed blender also works). Process to a powder; it's okay to leave some of it chunky. If using a Food Processor, add butter, arrowroot, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon and process until smooth. (I grind the almonds in my coffee grinder and then mix the crumble together with my hands in a bowl). Crumble the mixture on top of the apples.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes, until the crumble is golden and the apples have a syrupy coating (not shown in this picture). Serves well with real whipped cream, crème fraiche, cream or coconut milk.
Notes
  1. I recommend doubling the 'topping' ingredients, it's the best part and I feel shorted if I don't have enough crumble. You can also use this recipe for a Berry Crumble, just leave out the cinnamon. One large bag (16 ounces) of any frozen (or fresh) berries.
