I have a regular recipe using regular or sprouted flour for apple crisp, which I absolutely love! I grew up eating the regular recipe each fall and winter and it is complete comfort food for me! I have to avoid grains for awhile while I am fighting a h pylori infection (eating grains and regular sugar seems to make the symptoms much worse). So, for the next couple of months, I will be avoiding grains and wanted to have some great apple crisp, since my favorite seasonal apples are available again. I also used coconut sugar which is low on the glycemic index and is diabetic friendly (this doesn’t seem to aggravate my symptoms).
So I whipped up this little recipe and it works really well. It’s great topped with some freshly made whipped cream…..mmmmm!
