Paleo Apple Crisp by Paleo Baking Company

In the autumn as the weather cools and apples ripen, our thoughts turn to desserts with hints of cinnamon. A paleo apple crisp recipe is just what you need for this chilly, fall weekend!

Imagine that you're wearing thick, fluffy socks on your feet, wrapped in your favorite cozy blanket, and snuggled up in front of a warm, crackling fire. Ahhh... It's almost perfect. Maybe you have a hot cup of tea in your hands and are catching up on your latest Netflix binge. All you need to complete this picture of cozy perfection is a delicious snack... something sweet and tart with a soft cinnamon crunch.

This time of year is magical for bakers. Gardens and orchards have ripened for harvest, and the flavors of fruits and squash and ready for mixing into indulgent dessert creations. While pumpkin has been on our hearts and minds (and tongues), let us not overlook the humble apple.

Paleo recipe for apple crisp

Most apple crisp recipes call for ingredients like wheat flour and oatmeal (both grains, which we avoid), so the challenge in creating this recipe was finding a substitute for thickening the apple mixture and creating a crumbly, slightly crunchy topping. Fortunately, the versatility of our Vanilla Paleo Cake and Muffin Mix makes this apple crisp recipe both paleo AND incredibly easy to make.

This recipe only calls for about 1/4 of the bag of Paleo Cake and Muffin Mix, so you can easily double, triple, or quadruple this recipe for a large group or just yourself - hey, we won't judge. You could also use the extra mix to use in other recipes that call for partial bags of our baking mix, like Paleo Pumpkin Mug Cake.

A quick and easy paleo dessert!
