Paleo Apple Crisp

The other day, just after Canadian Thanksgiving, my friend Gen, who I work with and who helped facilitate my working in the same place, brought me in a piece of Paleo Apple Crisp that she had made… Well lets be honest. I told her she had better bring me a piece after I found out she had made it. She follows a Paleo framework as well, so I knew it would be pretty delicious and edible to me.

I figured I had better try and replicate it… My first attempt was dry and the crust too thick (I ate it any ways). However, My second attempt was perfection!!


  • 6 Macintosh Apples (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 Lemon (juiced)
  • 1/3 cup Unpasteurized Local Honey
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 cup Ground Almonds
  • 1/4 cup Slivered Almonds
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/3 – 1/4 cup Honey


  1. Place sliced apples, 1/3 c honey, lemon juice, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and toss until apple are coated.
  2. Place in a baking dish, pressing the apple down lightly.
  3. In another bowl add and mix the rest of the ingredients to make the crumble.
  4. Sprinkle in clumps on top of apples.
  5. Bake in a 350° oven until topping is browned and the apple are bubbling.
  6. Serve hot or cold.

    Thanks! I am going to try this. Honey is listed twice as an ingredient. Is one used in the topping and one in the apples, or is this an unintentional duplication?
