The Apple Part:

The “Crisp” Part (Topping)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples with the spices and maple syrup (if using), then transfer to a 9 or 10 inch pie dish or baking dish, set aside.
  3. For the crisp topping, put all the ingredients in a food processor and process or pulse until the pecans are finely ground and a thick, crumbly paste is created – this won’t take long.
  4. If your topping isn’t thick, you can chill it for 5-10 mins in the fridge. Drop/dollop the topping all over the apples to fully cover (or as fully as possible) and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until the apples are bubbling and the topping is brown and crisp. If the top browns too soon, you can cover with aluminum foil part of the way through.
  5. Let sit for at least 30 minutes to cool down before serving warm. Serve with coconut vanilla ice cream if desired.
  6. There will be no leftovers, I can assure you of that! If you’re lucky enough to have some left you can store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days (without the ice cream!) and reheat before serving. Enjoy!
