Welcome to thoughtful, organic beauty
Hello Joyous is an organic, plant-based, sustainable beauty brand here to bring more joy to your day.
My man crush Jamie Oliver posted his favourite apple crisp several weeks ago and I have literally been thinking about making my healthy and yummy version ever since! But it's not because I've been lazy, on the contrary, I've been baking and cooking up a storm!
Enter this paleo and vegan apple crisp - a total ray of sunshine and a welcome change from all the chocolate I've been eating. Since this makes a rather large portion, I've been eating it for breakfast with some sheep's milk yogurt (in addition to a treat after dinner)! Walker hasn't been joining me eating it at breakfast because he's been intermittent fasting for the past couple of weeks but that doesn't stop him from eating it at night!!
This apple crisp is everything you dream it could be: crunchy and crispy on the top and sweet and soft (but not soggy) on the bottom.
I have a thing about soggy fruit in crisps and cobblers. Unless it's blueberries or raspberries, I like a little texture, so I cook it until the apples are tender but not soggy. If you like them really soft like soup, just bake longer than I have noted below.
The best part about this crisp aside from how flavourful and yummy it is, is that it's totally vegan and paleo-friendly which makes it wonderful for people who have dietary restrictions or food allergies in your home. It's also easy on your digestive system! This recipe is loosely based off of my Grain-free Nutty Granola from my second cookbook Joyous Detox. I love creating grain-free (no oats) crisps because my digestion prefers it that way.
This apple crisp recipe is...
To make this recipe nut-free, simple omit almonds and walnuts and add pumpkin seeds instead.
Update: I have increased the amount of water on the bottom to ensure the apples stay nice and moist. Originally I had 1/4 cup and have since increased it 1/2 cup.
The only decision you'll need to make is what ice cream to schlop on top! ;)
I hope this recipe becomes a permanent recipe on the rotation. It's a wonderful recipe to make for your mama for Mother's Day!
Have a joyous day!
