Healthy Mini Apple Crisps Recipe

Makes 3 mini apple crisps in 4 oz. size ramekins.

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple diced with skin (I used Honeycrisp, but any variety will work. I cut apple into 16 slices, then diced).
  • 2 tbsp 100% maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • juice of 1 slice lemon
  • fresh ginger grated to taste (I grated about 1/2 tsp with a microplane)

Toppings:

  • 2 tbsp oat flour
  • 2 tbsp oatmeal (Snoqualmie Falls Lodge brand #locallove)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 pat of grass fed butter cut into super small cubes & divide into 3 (omit to lower fat content)

Note: This pic is before being baked in oven.

Directions:

    Heat oven to 350° F.
    Place all ingredients (minus toppings) in a bowl and mix.
    Evenly distribute apples into 3 ramekins.
    Place all topping ingredients minus butter in same bowl and mix.
    Evenly distribute topping mixture over apples (about two tablespoons each) and butter on top.
    Add a tablespoon of water in each ramekin.
    Bake in oven for about 45 minutes.
    Enjoy!
