Hi friends! I’ve been doing tons of baking lately, but unfortunately my mom and sister both have Celiac disease so they rarely get to try any of my treats. 😦 Karlie Kloss to the rescue!! I remembered this video by Karlie, in which she demonstrates one of her favourite recipes “Karlie’s Apple Krisp”, which happens to be gluten free! Woo hoo!
As soon as I saw her video I wanted to try it, even though I’m not a big fan of baked apple, it’s just nice to make something everyone can enjoy. It’s a pretty straightforward recipe, which you can also find on her tumblr here.
Here’s how it works:
4 cups of apples, peeled and sliced
2 teaspoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 cup almond flour – I used regular gluten free flour and 1/8 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/2 cup gluten free oats
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/3 coconut oil
Preheat your oven to 375F. Rub butter inside a small pan, then place apples, and poor lemon juice over top. Then add the maple syrup, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Toss it all around until evenly spread (I just used my hands). Then start with the crumble, mix together everything but the coconut oil, once it’s evenly mixed added in the coconut oil. Proceed to mix it all together until it’s nice and crumbly. 🙂 Spread the mix on top of the filling, drizzle about 1/2 a tablespoon of maple syrup on top, and bake it in the over for 30-40 minutes.
My experience: I made a few oopsies with this one. The biggest oopsie was that I accidentally put 1/2 a cup (instead of 1/3) of coconut oil into the crumble, so it wasn’t very crumbly. I just added some more oats to offset this, which actually helped a lot! At first I didn’t think it would be enough to cover the whole pan but in the end it formed a thin crust, so it all worked out! 🙂 Overall, I think it’s an excellent recipe, not too much work, but super healthy and super yummy!! Thanks Karlie!
