This is one of many attempts to try a recipe like this. I’ve never had it turn out before – some weren’t sweet enough, others the topping was just awful. But this recipe for clean apple crisp…it is AWESOME! Simple to through together and a hit with the whole family.
The topping is amazing!! The entire dish is sweetened only with honey, cinnamon and pure maple syrup. We ate ours warm and topped with as small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Out of this world. Ok so the ice cream isn’t “clean” but it was a nice treat. I bet a dollop of vanilla Greek yogurt would be yummy too.
The apples are warm and soft and a great contrast to the crisp topping. I couldn’t stop eating it even before it was baked.

Clean Apple Crisp
Yield: 6 servings
7-8 large apples (peeled and sliced)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons pure maple syrup, divided
3 tablespoons honey
2/3 cup white whole wheat flour
1 cup old fashion oats
2 teaspoons coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
Peel and slice the apples and throw them in a bowl. Add the cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup and mix well. Pour the apples into a greased casserole dish or pie pan.
In the same bowl, combine the flour, oats, remaining maple syrup, honey, coconut oil, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
Spread the oat mixture over the apples. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. The top should be golden brown. Top with ice cream if desired!
