8 cups sliced apples
1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup Birch Xylitol
1 teaspoon English Toffee Stevia
Cinnamon to taste – sprinkled all over the apples
Placed into deep dish pie crust made with almond flour and butter. You could use almond flour and coconut oil, if you don’t want the butter. We love butter!
Top with another crust and bake at 350 until golden brown. It took about 45 minutes. We had to shield the pie with foil to keep it from overbrowning while the apples got tender.
Coconut Flour Waffles
1/4 teaspoon stevia
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
7 Tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil
4 Tablespoons mashed banana
1/3 cup sifted coconut flour
1/3 cup pecan meal
Mix all the ingredients in a blender except the coconut flour and pecan meal. When it is well mixed, add the coconut flour and mix well and then, the pecan meal and mix well.
Bake in a waffle iron until brown.
We serve ours with some kind of fruit. My favorite is fried apples with cinnamon and stevia, but the last time we had this, we had blackberries warmed on the stove sweetened to taste with xylitol and stevia. After they got warm, I mashed them with a potato masher so the sweeteners could get inside the pulp. Then, we topped the whole thing with fresh whipped cream sweetened with Vanilla Creme Stevia.
My husband has NOT cared for my non-grain waffles until this one. He really liked it and told me to be sure to remember what I did, so we could do it again.
I plan to add blueberries to the batter the next time I make these!
SweetLeaf English Toffee Stevia
Amounts on this are variable according to how many you are feeding and your own taste. For my family, I use a stick or more of butter in a large skillet. I peel and slice apples into the skillet and add the stevia and Cinnamon to taste. I usually use 2 dropperfuls of the stevia and lightly cover the apples with cinnamon. Some in my family like more cinnamon, but too much is overwhelming.
This is great served in a bowl with heavy cream whipped and sweetened with SweetLeaf Vanilla Crème Stevia. It is also great on top of Almond Pecan Pancakes. I actually prefer it over any kind of syrup.
The same basic recipe would make a great apple pie, but honestly, I do NOT miss the crust and prefer the apples and whipped cream alone. For added crunch and flavor, try topping with lightly roasted pecans or walnuts!
