What is the barometer out there for baked items, specifically those using Dates as the sweetener. In moderation of course. I just whipped up this Apple Crisp with Salted Caramel Topping. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but felt like experimenting. Crisp fall weather here in Chicago.
1 Gala apple - sliced in thin strips/wafers
Crumble topping 1 tsp melted coconut oil 1/3 cup Almond Meal/Flour (is there such a thing as pecan flour? I'd try that in a heartbeat) 1/2 tsp apply pie spice (use cinnamon to sub) 3 chopped dates
Chop above ingredients in food processor or mini chopper
Melt coconut oil in ramekin in microwave and then mix in a bowl with other ingredients, except apples
Place apples in ramekin you just melted the coconut oil in Add crumble topping Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until apples are fragrant
Salted Carmel topping
1/2 cup of coconut cream 1 hot date (microwave 30 seconds) dash of vanilla 1/8 tsp or less - melted bacon fat Mix in food processor or whip by hand (the texture of cream thinned out in processor - I put in freezer)
