Apple Crisp Recipe + Sweet & Simple Gluten Free Baking Book Review And Giveaway!!!

gluten free apple crisp

Today I’m sharing a gluten free apple crisp recipe from Chrystal Carver’s new book, “Sweet & Simple Gluten-Free Baking – Irresistible Classics In 10 Ingredients or Less!” But before I get to the recipe, let me tell you a little bit about Chrystal Carver and her new book 🙂

Chrystal Carver has 2 children who are gluten intolerant and blogs over at Gluten Free Palate. After spending lots of money of on packaged gluten free foods that didn’t even taste that good, she decided to make her own recipes. And from there came her blog and her cookbook!

In her book, she gives you an option of 2 different gluten free flour blends (one rice based and one bean based) to use in her classic recipes and every recipe uses 10 ingredients or less – YAY!!! While her recipes aren’t Paleo, they look very easy and totally delicious! Additionally, every recipe has a beautiful, full page picture, the nutritional breakdown, and substitution notes.

I got the chance to make her apple crisp recipe and we LOVED it!!! I did substitute the 1/2 C of her all-purpose flour with 1/3 C of arrowroot and 3 Tbsp. of Blanched Almond flour and used coconut palm sugar instead of brown sugar and it still turned out perfect 🙂

Other recipes in her book include:

Butterscotch Tassies
Coconut Macaroons
Fruit Filled Oatmeal Squares
Lemon Bread
Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes
Nutmeg Cookies
Pumpkin Cupcakes
White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies and much, much more!

In addition to sharing her apple crisp recipe I’m also giving away a free copy of her book! To enter, just leave a comment telling me what your favorite dessert is. For an additional entry, follow me on Facebook or Pinterest and leave another comment telling me that you follow me there as well. The giveaway will close on Sunday, November 2nd at 12 pm central time.

    I love all desserts but if I had to chose one to eat for the rest of my life, it would have to be chocolate chip cookies.
