How to make healthy blueberry apple crisp
Healthy blueberry apple crisp is so easy to make! You do not need to have any fancy baking or cooking skills; trust me! You’ll just need a pie pan or baking dish and two bowls: one to mix the filling and one to mix the topping.
First, preheat your oven to 375F and lightly grease a pie pan or baking tin with a little avocado spray. If using a baking dish, I would use one that is about either 9 by 9 or 8 by 11 inches. But any size will work!
Next, you are going to prepare the filling.
To start, core the apples. You can peel them as well or leave the skin on, whatever you prefer! I leave the skin on
Next, slice them into very thin pieces. About 1/8 inch thick.
In a big bowl, mix together the apples, blueberries, lemon juice, tapioca flour, ground cinnamon, and coconut sugar. Make sure everything is coated and pour into the pie pan or baking dish.
Now it is time to prepare the topping! In a separate bowl, mix together the gluten-free rolled oats, almond flour, pecans or walnuts, ground cinnamon, salt. and coconut oil.
Sprinkle the crumble on top of the filling in the baking dish. Make sure to spread it evenly across the top!
Now all you have to do is bake for 45 – 50 minutes. I would cover the top with alimunm foil for the last 20 minutes!
The crust should be golden brown and blueberries and apples are bubbling! Enjoy the best ever healthy blueberry apple crisp.
What to serve with healthy blueberry apple crisp
I eat my healthy blueberry apple crisp with a scoop of my favorite vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt! The sweet notes from the melting ice cream with the warmth from the cinnamon baked apple crips are amazing!
If you are daring to try something new, you can even serve this vegan and gluten-free healthy blueberry apple crisp with some whipped cream or drizzle of caramel!
Make extra? How to store healthy blueberry apple crisp
I recommend eating this healthy blueberry apple crisp on the same day you make it! I love to enjoy it straight out of the oven. It really tastes the best then 🙂
However, if you have extras, and want to save if for the rest of the week, store in the original pie pan or dish with aluminum foil covering the top or in a covered airtight container in the fridge.
For best results, heat up in a oven save bowl or in the original baking dish at 350 F for 10 – 12 minutes. You can also microwave an individual serving for about 1 minute.
