Coconut Apple Crisp (Gluten Free)

We LOVED this apple crisp! It reminds me of apple pie but with a taste of coconut. I found it very easy to make and received only positive comments from family who tasted this yummy dessert. Plus, it's gluten free! Check the bottom of this recipe for information regarding substitutions (if you must)!

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
About 8 servings

4 medium apples peeled, cored & diced
1 ½ cups coconut flakes
6 tbsp coconut palm sugar (or 2 tbsp white sugar and 4 tbsp brown sugar)

1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp salt
½ cup coconut flour

4 tsp honey warmed
6 tbsp butter melted
3 tsp lemon juice

*Optional/Recommended- So Delicious coconut milk ice cream

Preheat Oven to 350°F.
Place apples evenly in an 11X7 baking dish coated with oil or butter.
**When thinly and evenly spread, this dessert achieves a nice crunchy top.
In a medium size bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix well. Next, mix together liquid ingredients in a small, separate bowl. Add to dry ingredients. Stir until mixture resembles course meal. Top apples with mixture creating a thin layer on top. Bake for 25-30 minutes until brown and crispy on top. Serve with ice cream.

Substitutions: I have tried this recipe with other types of flours. You can substitute coconut flour for regular or whole wheat pastry flour if you are not concerned with having a gluten free recipe. (no need to change amounts. Use 1/2 cup of any flour you like). Oats may also be used in place of coconut flakes. But, if you have access to these ingredients, I suggest trying it this way!! We really loved the flavor and consistency. Good luck!
