Apple Nut Butter Crisp
Apple Nut Butter Crisp is a delightful, grain free variation on one of my childhood favorites…
My mom used to make apple crisp for us when I was a kid and I loved her. Her topping included oatmeal, butter, cinnamon and brown sugar, which was delicious. I recently came up with a grain free option, but now I have added a twist and it’s DELICIOUS! This Apple Nut Butter Crisp is a combination of the warm, soft cooked apples and the topping is reminiscent of peanut butter cookies.
Ingredients for Apple Nut Butter Crisp:
6 to 8 organic apples cored and sliced
1/4 cup of grass fed butter
1/2 cup nut butter (Almond butter or peanut butter work well)
1/2 cup sucanat
dash of sea salt
Place sliced apples in a casserole dish or stoneware and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sliced or cube butter and distribute evenly over the apples. Mix all other ingredients thoroughly in another bowl and then sprinkle evenly over apples and butter. Bake for 20 minutes! Voila!
I served this with plain yogurt on top and my kids gobbled it up! Very kid friendly, grain-free breakfast!

What is the difference between sucanat and refined sugar? I see so many different articles/studies saying that a specific sugar is better (I often see that coconut sugar is best) but really, isn’t sugar sugar? I’d love to understand better! Thanks!

Rachel, that is such a good question. Here is an article that explains each kind of sugar in detail: http://www.smallfootprintfamily.com/the-many-different-kinds-of-sugar
But my short answer is that I strive to avoid eating any processed foods and in the case of sugar, unrefined sugars like sucanat, honey and coconut sugar are much less processed and still have trace minerals and other nutrients intact.

Have i missed an ingredient? Is there no oats or similar in the mix? Is the mix you sprinkle on top Just salt, sugar and almond butter? Just checking before I make it!

Yes, that is it. Some recipes call for almond flour, so this basically replaces that.
