A Sweet Treat That's Guiltless to Eat
Don't let a sweet tooth put a cramp in your healthy lifestyle. Some desserts are satisfying without excess sugar and fat. With this baked apple crisp, you can enjoy the potential cancer-fighting power of apples without sacrificing flavor. A diet that features foods containing dietary fiber – like the apples and rolled oats used here – probably decreases your risk of developing colorectal cancer.
Hint: For a gluten-free version, substitute healthy quinoa flour for the whole-wheat flour.
(As always, for the very healthiest recipe choose organic products as much as possible)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat 8 inch square baking dish with coconut oil. Combine apples, raisins and apple juice in bowl; toss well. Transfer apple mixture to baking dish.
In another bowl, combine flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
With pastry blender or knife and fork, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over surface of apples.
Lightly coat top with coconut oil. Cover and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 20 minutes more or until apples are tender. Remove from oven and let stand on wire rack at least 20 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm or at room temperature.
