What are the health benefits of apples?

  • Apples are a good source of heart healthy soluble fiber which may help lower undesirable LDL cholesterol & help keep blood sugar levels from spiking. Related post:
  • Apples are rich in quercetin, a flavonoid with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health benefits. Although human research studies are limited, quercetin may help fight asthma and allergies, and have anti-cancer activity.
  • Apples are a source of pectin, a prebiotic, which helps promote a healthy gut microbiome.

Tips for Making a Gluten Free Apple Crisp

  • Choose a sweet variety of apple, which allows you to cut back on the amount of sugar in the apple crisp. I love this guide to choosing apples from The Washington Apple Commission.
  • Leave the apple skin on for extra fiber and antioxidants.
  • Pre-cook the apples in mulling spices to make them extra juicy and delicious. Bonus: You’ll have hot mulled apple cider to drink when you’re done!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place apples in a saucepan with apple juice and mulling spices {if using}. Heat on high until boiling, then turn heat down and simmer for 15-20 minutes. 
  • While apples are simmering prepare topping. In a bowl combine remaining ingredients with a fork until well mixed. 
  • After apples are done, removed them with a slotted spoon, and divide them in to 4 individual ramekins. Divide topping amongst ramekins and sprinkle on top. Bake in oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until topping is crispy.

Notes

  • Don’t have sorghum flour or tapioca flour? Use your favorite gluten free flour blend instead.
  • Leave the apple skin on for extra fiber and antioxidants.
  • Pre-cook the apples in mulling spices to make them extra juicy and delicious. Bonus: You’ll have hot mulled apple cider to drink when you’re done!
