Thanksgiving is this weekend which means I get to stuff my face with all the delicious food and I’m so excited. I always look forward to family dinners because it's food I only have when it’s a holiday, so you best believe I eat it all #noshame. I used to be really uptight about family dinners and would workout a ton before and after and eat basically nothing to “cancel out” what I was going to eat at dinner. Now, I just do my normal routine and if I eat more than normal, oh well. It’s not the end of the world, life goes on. I know my body better now and I know what makes me feel like I have to curl up in a ball on the cough after, so I try to avoid things that do that, but sometimes it happens and that’s okay!
I was going to make apple fritters but as you know, those didn’t turn out. Instead, I saved what was left from them which was basically a crumble topping (that I could have eaten all by itself) and decided to make apple bread and use that as a topping. I surprised myself with how good it turned out and tasted. The taste was exactly like an apple fritter, so it kind of worked out. This may be going to my Thanksgiving dinner…..
Here’s the recipe;
· 1 small apple, chopped
· ½ cup almond flour
· 2 tbsp coconut flour
· 1 tbsp chia seeds
· ¼ cup non-dairy milk
· 3 tbsp coconut sugar
· 2 tsp cinnamon
· 1 tsp baking soda
· ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
· 1 large apple, chopped
· ¼ cup coconut sugar
· 1 tbsp cinnamon
· ½ cup coconut oil, melted
· 2 eggs
· 1 ½ cup oat flour
· 2 tsp baking soda
· 2 tsp sea salt
· ½-1 cup non-dairy milk
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 11x7 pan or 8x8 works too.
2. Mix all crumble toppings in a large bowl until combined.
3. Pour into a pan with a little bit of coconut oil. Make like you would a pancake. When ready to flip, it’ll just fall apart. At that point, you can “scramble” it like you would eggs until the batter is cooked and a crumble texture. Set aside.
4. In a large bowl, whisk together coconut sugar and melted coconut oil.
5. Add eggs, milk and whisk until all is smooth and combined.
6. Add flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Use a spatula to mix flour mixture in.
7. Fold in apples just until all is combined.
8. Pour into greased pan. Top with crumble mixture.
9. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
10. Remove foil and bake for another 20-25. Use a toothpick to check for doneness (if it comes out clean, it’s done)
11. Serve warm with a caramel drizzle or scoop of ice cream.
Typing this out made me want some so bad. I guess I know what I’m having after dinner later...
