Gluten-Free Apple Pear Crisp {no refined sugar}

Hey, All. I whipped this together this evening and had to share. It took me minutes to put together and you can tweak it to your heart’s content. {Gluten-Free, No Refined Sugar}

Freshly Grown’s GF Apple Pear Crisp


GF Apple-Pear Crisp

3 apples

2 pears

1/4th c. coconut sugar or brown sugar

2 Tbs. all-purpose GF flour (optional)

1/2 tsp. lemon zest

1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

(or you can even use 1 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice)

Topping

1 1/4 c. pecans or nut of your choice

1/2 c. old-fashioned oats

1/4th c. maple syrup or raw honey

3 1/2 Tbs. coconut oil, melted

Pinch of sea salt

Preheat your oven to 350 Core, cut and peel (I keep my peels on) your apples and pears. Cut them into medium-sized chunks. Throw them in a bowl and add your lemon zest, juice, coconut sugar, GF flour and spices. Mix thoroughly. Pour your apple-pear mixture into a deep dish baking round. Then, with a food processor, process your pecans until they are ground. You can pulse them if you like them a bit chunky. Add a bit of your 3 Tbs. of coconut oil as you process the pecans. You can use the same mixing bowl as your apple-pear mixture and add all of your topping ingredients (including your ground pecans) to the bowl and stir or blend with a hand mixer until well mixed. Pour onto the top of your apple-pear mixture and place your baking dish in the oven. Bake for 50-60 minutes until your crisp cooked through and bubbly. Easy as…pie?

Two things: 1. Cut your apples and pears any size you like. I’ll probably cut my chunks smaller next time 2. I don’t have a big sweet tooth and sugar is still sugar so if you wanted to cut the coconut sugar and maple syrup amount in half I bet you’d still walk away with a treat that’s still plenty sweet. Enjoy!
