DELICIOUS Healthy Apple Crisp



This recipe is so yummy, and it doesn’t use any refined sugar.  I am always looking for ways to make our favourite recipes more healthy and to better fit our lifestyle. I came across this recipe and put a few of my own touches on it. It was so good, even my hubby loved it..and he was skeptical!

Sometimes simple swaps like almond meal for flour and cane sugar for brown sugar can make a big difference. I prefer to use natural and pure ingredients that my body can better digest.

I hope you love this delicious healthy apple crisp recipe as much as we do!

This recipe for Apple Crisp takes an old time favourite and removes the refined sugars and processed ingredients to make it a much healthier alternative. It is still gooey, tasty and delicious. I can honestly say I prefer it over my regular recipe. I absolutely LOVE the addition of the nuts to the topping.

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 45 mins
  • 30 mins

    45 mins

    1 hr 15 mins

  • Yields: 6 Servings


5 medium sized granny smith apples

1 tbsp pure maple syrup

3 tbsp water

2 tsp cinnamon

2-3 tbsp Cane Sugar OR Coconut Palm Sugar

1 cup old-fashioned oats (NOT quick oats)

1/2 cup almond flour or almond meal (you can just grind up almonds)

1/2 cup chopped almonds, walnuts, or pecans

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup pure maple syrup


1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Peel apples and dice into cubes of approximately equal size or thinly slice, whichever you prefer. In a large bowl, toss apples with maple syrup, water, cinnamon, and cane or coconut sugar. Pour apples into greased 9x9 inch baking dish.

2In the same (now empty) bowl, add oats, almond meal, nuts, cinnamon, salt, melted coconut oil, and maple syrup. Stir the crumble topping together and pour on top of the apples.

3Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes until apples are soft. Be sure to check it halfway through and if it is getting too dark, cover the pan loosely with aluminum foil.

4Serve warm or cold with Low fat vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream. Enjoy!

    This was super good, and way healthier then the other recipe with loads of sugar. The extra crunch from the chopped nuts was also very good.
