IMG 4266 Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Fall is my favorite season! I love the weather, the way the leaves turn gold, the fashion, the hot apple ciders and the best part is the fall baking. Throughout the season I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite fall recipes.

In honor of National Apple Month, I decided to bake a gluten-free apple crisp. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s quick and easy but semi healthy too! Using fresh apples, gluten free oats, gluten free flour, butter, brown sugar and spices this dessert is perfect dish to serve at your next fall harvest party.

Sweet Potato Bread

Fall is officially here! To kick off the beginning of my favorite season, I made sweet potato bread. Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite fall vegetables. Since I’m mostly on a gluten-free diet now, I needed a snack for my work trip this past weekend that could also work as an item for breakfast just in case I couldn’t find something to eat at the hotel. This quick bread is easy to make and doesn’t have rise before going into the oven. Using freshly pureed sweet potatoes and maple syrup this delicious loaf turns out soft and fluffy and melts in your mouth.

  4. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  7. 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  8. 1/8 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/2 cup maple syrup
  10. 1/4 plain greek yogurt

  13. 1 1/2 of freshly baked sweet potatoes, remove skins
  14. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking oil spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir flours, spices, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, blend together sweet potatoes, yogurt, eggs, maple syrup, butter, and vanilla extract.

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes, then remove the loaf from the pan to cool the loaf on the rack for at least 20 minutes before cutting into slices.
