Easy Apple Crisp (Gluten-Free, Grain-Free)

We don't eat a lot of fruit, too high in fructose which our tummies do not like. When we do, we eat the ones that have low fructose levels.
(Fruits that are lowest in fructose levels and easiest to digest include berries such as strawberries, raspberries and blackberries, lemons, limes, pineapples, avocado, rhubarb, bananas and oranges. Fruits that have a high fructose content include prunes, pears, peaches, cherries, apples, plums, applesauce, apple and pear juices, apple cider, and grapes.)

However, at our last shopping trip we saw that apples and apple pie spice were on clearance...and we felt that was too good to pass up.

So we sliced the apples.

And sprinkled them heavily with spice and maple syrup.

And topped them with a mixture of coconut flour, coconut sugar, shredded coconut,  and grass-fed butter. Don't worry, it sounds like a lot of coconut products but it won't taste like coconut, we promise. In fact if you can't eat butter you can use coconut oil too!  
(Grass-fed butter is the only dairy that our tummies can handle,
as is has too little lactose to cause a problem.)
All ready for the oven!

We ate it while it was hot and steamy. The soft apples and crispy topping with a hint of sweetness was complete perfection. 

Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon!

10 stars from everyone! :-P
