Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 honeycrisp apple, peeled, seeds removed and cut in slices
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup ghee (butter or coconut oil works)
  • 1/4 cup natural almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar (for apple mixture)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  3. Once the water is boiling, steam the apple slices for about 5- 7 minutes until they are easily pierced with a fork.
  4. While the apples are steaming, place the pecans, almond flour, sea salt, and coconut sugar in your food processor.
  5. Process for a few seconds, until chunky.
  6. Add the ghee, almond butter and vanilla.
  7. Process again until combined and crumbly.
  8. Press 3/4 of the crumble into a bread pan lined with parchment paper. You want to really press it hard into the bottom, otherwise it won’t stay together.
  9. You want to make an even, firmly packed, flat layer across the bottom.
  10. In a bowl, mash the apples until desired consistency. You can keep them chunkier or smoother depending how you like it.
  11. Mix in the coconut sugar and cinnamon.
  12. Spread the apple mixture out on top of the bottom layer.
  13. Crumble the remaining crumble mixture on top.
  14. Bake for 10 minutes, until the top is a bit golden.
  15. Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan and cutting into it.
