Hot and Healthy Apple Crisp

The following recipe is from the Member Center of www.drfuhrman.com   A member commented that this crisp smells wonderful while baking in the oven.  Enjoy!

 

(Preheat oven to 350 degrees.)

8 apples, peeled and sliced

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup date sugar

1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour

2 cups rolled oats

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/3 cup raisins

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup Goji berries, soaked (optional)

Sprinkle apples with lemon juice & toss.  Mix rest of ingredients together then combine with apples and mix thoroughly.  Pour into an 8" X 11" baking dish and bake for 45 minutes.  Makes 8 servings.

Note:  If using Goji berries make sure to soak them for an hour ahead of time in just enough water to cover.  Drain before adding the berries to the mixture.  The Goji berries not only add color to this crisp but, more importantly, they add a nutritional antioxidant boost!

Hmmm... might have to rearrange my menu for one of theses. The apple crisp looks wonderful.

It is so easy and satisfying, not only to mention rewarding, to eat healthy and not suffer ill effects afterward. I am so looking forward to my healthy feast.

These recipes look trully delicious and I am temped to try them. However, is there a danger of even healthful recipes such as these, which include date sugar, raisins, pineapple on top of mashed sweet potato, etc, producing high glucose spikes that are linked to cardiovascular risk?
