One taste of this delicious Apple Crisp dessert and you’ve won’t believe it is both gluten and refined sugar free. The addition of fresh thyme adds a subtle savory note to the otherwise sweet flavor profile of this classic recipe.

Tip: Choose firm apples, such as Granny Smith or Pink Lady (pictured), for this recipe. These varieties will hold up well to the heat of baking without turning to mush.

  • 2 tbsp 100% Apple juice (sugar free)

  • 1/3 c Almond flour
  • 1/3 c Almonds, sliced
  • 1/3 c Honey, preferably local
  • 3 tbsp Unsalted butter, melted

To Serve: (Optional)


Vanilla bean ice cream or freshly whipped cream
