Would You Like Some ... Gluten Free Apple Crisp?

It’s that time of year where the evenings are still sometimes chilly, and a warm dessert is in order.  Not to mention that apples are about the only fruit that’s still available (locally grown) at this time of year!  My friend Amie of The Healthy Apple has put together some delicious looking kid-friendly snacks for us, and the first one I’m sharing with you is her Gluten-Free Apple Crisp.  Looks yummy, doesn’t it?

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp all spice
  • 1/6 tsp cloves
  • 7 cups apples, peeled and sliced into ½ inch thin slices

Crisp Topping Ingredients:

  • ½ cup cashews, ground
  • 3 Tbsp. oil
