I was thinking about Thanksgiving (and who isn't?), and thinking about desserts (again, who isn't?), when I thought about what would make a great alternative to pie this Thanksgiving. Yeah, we'll definitely have pies, but sometimes you want to have something a little different. I don't mean really different, just a little different.
So, here's a Welcoming Kitchen apple crisp that not only is gluten-free, but also oat-free. The coconut oil gives it a hint of coconut flavor and the topping is really crispy.
Serve this apple crisp on its own or with sorbet or coconut-based ice cream.
We wish you the happiest holiday season.
Crispy Apple Crisp (gluten-free, vegan, refined-sugar-free, allergen-free)

1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
Preheat oven to 400.
Lightly oil a 2-quart baking dish or square baking pan.
Finely crush 1 cup of crispy rice cereal into a powder. (A food processor works well for this.)
Peel and thinly slice apples.
Lay apple slices into the baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine cereal flour, remaining cereal, syrup and coconut oil.
Pour topping over apples, pat to cover.
Bake 40 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
