I am still looking for new recipes for all the apples that we picked at the orchard. I really wanted to find one that incorporated quinoa, which I did – but it has sooo much sugar and other things that I don’t cook with, that I need to do some thinking and editing of the ingredients – so that will hopefully be forth coming. Stella loves apple pie and apple crisp, but I wanted something similar but different. This turned out with a cake like quality, but you can eat like a bar! This has a really nice flavor and not overly sugar sweet, which is fabulous.
Ingredients for Buckle
2 cups flour (preferably sprouted)
1/2 cup coconut sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut oil (or butter)
3/4 cup whole milk (preferably raw)
2 cups cut up apples, plus slices for layering
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp (or more) cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter
1. Grease round pan (9″) or square (8x8x2 or 9x9x2). If you do in a rectangle pan – you cut into bars, which would make great lunch snacks!
2. Wash, core and peel apples. Cut about 5 – 7 slices and then cut up the rest of the apple into smaller pieces. You want to know that there is apple in there, but not so big that it is hard to eat.
3. Turn oven on to 375 degrees.
4. Mix all the ingredients for buckle together in a bowl, with the exception of the apples.
5. Fold in apples.
6. Spread evenly in your pan.
7. Mix the topping ingredients together. You will want to slice the butter before adding.
8. Either with your hands or a pastry cutter – mix the ingredients until is looks like course meal/crumbs.
9. Sprinkle topping on top.
10. Bake for 40 – 50 minutes. Test with a toothpick. The top will become crunchy.
Cool, slice and enjoy!
