This is a very simple dessert AND it is healthy. It has fruit and fibre and nourishes your body … but you can call it dessert! I like that.
I made these for dessert and my celiac and non celiac teens gobbled them up. They do like to put a dollop of whipped cream on-top. My husband likes dairy free ice cream and I like it plain. So, do whatever hits your fancy.
Here is what I do;
Make your topping first. In a bowl measure 1/4 cup rice flour, 1/4 cup GF oat flour, 1/2 cup GF Oats, 1/3 to 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans, 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Stir til well combined. You can add chia as well. It adds nutrients but no one will even notice!
Cut in 1/2 cup dairy free hard margarine or butter. Then take your hands and rub all of the ingredients together until it is evenly combined and crumbly.
Take a pairing knife and take the core out of the apple. If you cut down the core from the top and then from the bottom … that is the easiest way to do it!
Then, push the ‘crumble’ down inside of the apple and pack it in tight. You should have enough to do 4 apples. Whatever I have left, I pile evenly on top of the apples.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes. If you bake it too long, your apple will split. It still tastes good, just not as pretty!
Serve plain, with ice cream or whipped cream.
