I’m going to go on record right now and say that this Paleo Apple Crisp recipe is THE BEST I’ve ever had. And not just because I made it, I swear. The best part about this recipe is that it’s totally 21-Day Sugar Detox approved. Yep! Which means I get to eat the entire thing in one sitting without feeling guilty.
Erm, ok maybe not.
In January I completed my second successful 21DSD. During this time I was invited to a potluck party with “normal” people (Glutenites) and I knew I was going to be in trouble because someone was bringing cake. That’s practically a sugar relapse waiting to happen.
So instead I decided to make a Paleo apple crisp with no added sugars. I’ve made apple crisps and cobblers before, but usually Paleo crisps tend to have dry apple filling and a sawdust topping.
So you want to know my stroke of genius? Add some coconut milk to the filling to cut the tartness of the green apples, which adds a creamyness to the whole dessert. Then add some tapioca flour to make the apple filling thicker. The result? THE BEST APPLE CRISP EVER OMFG.
Ok, I’ll admit that I ate a full serving right before bed the night before the party and almost died from pure bliss. I remember rolling around on the couch while dry humping the air and yelling “YUMMM!!!” to my boyfriend.
Then the next day I ate another serving after photographing it before the party. But I smoothed things over so that you couldn’t even tell I was dippin’ into the pan. Muahaha. But THEN at the party I kept sneaking off during dinner to hide in the kitchen while feverishly eating 2nd, 3rd, and 4th helpings. Hey, I’m a baking genius but I didn’t say I was right in the head. Clearly I have problems sharing my treats.
