Homemade Organic Apple Crisp

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 4 organic apples (I used a mixture of tart and sweet), rinsed, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. organic 100% lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. unchlorinated and unflouridated water
  • 1 tsp. organic ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup organic rolled oats
  • 1 cup organic unbleached white flour
  • 2 Tbsp. organic brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. organic white sugar
  • 3-4 Tbsp. organic pasture butter, softened; OR organic coconut oil (for vegan option)
  • 1 pinch Real Salt

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the water and lemon juice together in a small bowl, dip the sliced apples into it to stop them from browning, if desired.
  3. Arrange the sliced apples in the bottom of a 6-cup casserole dish; Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, add oats, softened butter or coconut oil, pinch of salt and both sugars; Stir with spoon or use your hands until well blended.
  5. Press the oat mixture on top of the apples in the casserole; Make sure that it’s flattened on the top of the casserole.
  6. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
  7. Enjoy!

 

Homemade Organic Apple Cinnamon Muffins with Streusel

For the Muffins:

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 7 Tbsp. [1 stick minus 1 Tbsp.] organic pasture butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 2 large organic pasture eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups organic unbleached white flour, PLUS 2 Tbsp. for dusting shredded apple
  • 4 tsp. Homemade Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1 cup grass-fed organic whole milk
  • 1-1/2 tsp. Homemade Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded organic tart apples (such as organic Granny Smith)
  • 1-2 tsp. organic 100% lemon juice

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° Fahrenheit.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Core each apple, then shred and combine with lemon juice; Set aside.
  4. Once the butter and sugar are creamed, add each egg into the electric mixer separately and mix well in between.
  5. In a separate mixing bowl, stir the flour, salt and baking powder together.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in two segments, alternating with the milk and vanilla.
  7. Stir until just evenly moistened.  The batter will be slightly lumpy.
  8. Combine the shredded apple and 2 Tbsp. flour until well coated.
  9. Using a large spatula, fold in the shredded apples until just evenly distributed, no more than a few strokes.  Take care not to break up the fruit.  Do not overmix.
  10. Spoon the batter into each muffin cup, filling it level with the cup.
  11. Bake for about 12 minutes.
  12. Remove from the oven.
  13. Sprinkle each muffin with streusel.
  14. Place back into the oven and bake until golden, dry and springy to the touch, approximately an additional 8 – 13 minutes.  A toothpick inserted to the center of the muffin should come out clean.
  15. Place the muffins on a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
