I always love the fall, when the apples start to come in and you can bake and cook them into seasonal delicacies. Fresh, sweet,organic apples may be used for so many easy and fun treats! This pecan crusted apple crisp has a wonderfully crispy crust with the buttery flavor of the pecans that is reminiscent of graham cracker crust. Combined with fresh organic apples it makes for a wonderful dessert. These ingredients are simple, pure and whole — so nutritious and satisfying.

Pecan Crusted Apple Crisp

Ingredients for Crust

1 3/4 cup pecan butter from soaked and dehydrated nuts (2.5 cups crispy pecans made to nut butter consistency) (where to buy soaked nuts) (how to soak and dehydrate nuts)

1/2 cup coconut flour (where to buy coconut flour)

1/4 cup coconut oil (where to buy coconut oil)

1/4 cup raw honey (where to buy honey)

1 teaspoon vanilla (where to buy vanilla)

Instructions for Crust

  • Measure out the nuts and in a food processor grind them to a nut butter
  • Add the oil, honey, vanilla and process
  • Add the coconut flour and process until it combines and it becomes a ball
  • If it is too soft add a little more coconut flour 1 teaspoon at a time until it becomes a ball
  • Remove 3/4 of the batter and press it into a large pie plate, reserving the rest for the topping

Ingredients for the Apple Filling

6 large organic apples, cored, peeled and cubed

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon honey

In a large pan saute the apples in some ghee, butter or coconut oil (where to buy ghee) (how to make ghee)

Cook until somewhat soft (about 8 – 10 minutes)

Add cinnamon and honey to taste when they are just cooked

Putting it all together

  • In a 325 degrees oven place the crust to brown for about 15 – 20 minutes while you are cooking the apples
  • When the apples are soft, using a slotted spoon to remove them from any liquid and put the apples into the browned crust
  • Crumble the rest of the crust batter evenly over the top
  • Bake in oven for 12 – 15 minutes or until the top is browned
  • This may be served warm or cold with toppings such as fresh whipped cream, coconut whipped cream, yogurt, etc.
