Tuesday Treat // A Healthy Twist On An Old Fall Favorite

Tuesday Treat // A Healthy Twist On An Old Fall Favorite

With the holidays come indulgences.  It’s hard to resist the scents of seasonal delights that fill the kitchen.  I’m a big believer in moderation, not depravation.  After all, these festive days only come once a year.

Healthy Holiday Apple Crisp Recipe

On Sundays, I love shopping at the local farmers market.  The fall produce is so colorful and inspires my cooking.  I’ve never been into baking, but I could not resist the beautiful array of apples I saw on a recent visit.  I immediately thought, what would be cozier on a chilly December day than an apple crisp!  I bought a mix of several beautiful varieties and headed home to troll my favorite food blogs for ideas.  I looked in my cabinets to see what I had on hand, and came up with this recipe.  It’s my healthy, gluten-free twist on a good old fall favorite.  SO easy, and will make your home smell heavenly.  It’s so delicious, and guilt-free, that I’ll confess to even having it for breakfast one morning!



5 – 6 Apples:  I like to mix different types.  It adds interest and depth of flavor, as well as texture since some apples are firmer than others.  (Favorite mix: Fuji, Honey Crisp, and Ginger Gold.)

¼ cup of Maple Syrup:  Nothing better than a natural sweetener without any chemicals or additives.  (I like Brad’s Organic Maple Syrup  made right here in New York)

2 tablespoons of Cinnamon: (Cinnamon health benefits: Reduces LDL cholesterol levels, regulates blood sugar, may even fight cancer cells!)

1 teaspoon of Nutmeg:  ( buy it whole and grate it fresh)

1 teaspoon of Ginger: (buy a decent-sized piece, peel it, and freeze it.  It lasts virtually forever)


2 tablespoons of Golden Flax: (chock full of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.)

1 tablespoon of Cinnamon:  Because I can’t get enough!  

3 tablespoons of Coconut Oil:  (Most apple crisp recipes call for a TON of butter, like ½ a stick or more!) 

1 ½ cups Gluten Free Quick Oats:  ( Less gluten in my daily diet that has me feeling much more energetic.)

Maple Syrup: ( I drizzle a little all over the top to help the crisp caramelize.)

Preparation It’s simple!  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Lightly coat a 9 x 13” glass baking dish with coconut oil (I use the type in a spray can to make this step easier).  Slice and core the apples.  I like to leave little remnants of skin on to add texture and fiber.  Toss with the other filling ingredients and coat well.  Mix up topping ingredients and spread evenly over the top.  Remember to drizzle a bit of maple syrup across the top at the end. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until apples are soft and the top is golden brown.  Allow to cool for about 5-10 minutes before serving.  Since this apple crisp does not have butter or cane sugar you might find it a tad dry, so I love to put a dollap of my favorite vanilla frozen yogurt on top, which not only adds moisture, but is the perfect compliment. 

Right now I’m loving Stonyfield Organic Oikos Nonfat Vanilla Greek Frozen Yogurt.  It’s rich and creamy and does not have that artificial taste of some frozen yogurts.  Plus it’s peppered with tiny flecks of real vanilla bean. Y U M!  Lastly, since we tend to eat with our eyes, I always like to add a pop of color to my desserts, so this time I happened to have some fresh raspberries in the fridge, so I sprinkled a few on top. I hope you enjoy my recipe, and would love for you to share your thoughts if you try it out!  What’s your favorite healthy holiday treat to make?
