If this isn’t the perfect ending to a day of apple picking and family photo shoots, I don’t know what is. All the flavor of your grandmother’s version, without the grain and all the sugar. A dose of your special magic alchemizes nuts, seeds and coconut into a delicious crisp that will having you craving all the fleece and wool socks you can find. It’s like childhood in a bowl without the guilt.
However; if you want to add a bit of gluten free oatmeal cuz you just can’t help it, go ahead… it’s still #betterthan straight oats. What if there was a place in all the middle… in all the 50 shades of gray and all the colors of the rainbow? A place of a little of this and a little of that?
You get to choose. What works best for you?
Have fun with the #alchemy of it all and use a variety of apples, some courtlands, macintosh and honey crisp. I also had a few perfectly ripe bartlett pears that I peeled and chopped as well; which added a whole new dimension to the flavor profile.
