I'm super excited to share a new joyous recipe video with you today featuring a special guest - my good friend Candice!
Candice and I bonded on our love of baked goods. When we were neighbours (that’s how we met) she used to bring me her recipe creations and “experiments” to taste test. It was funny because she always let me try them with anticipation worrying I was not going to like them. Of course everything was delicious because she has a natural talent for all things baked!
Today we are going to make this wonderful dessert together - Apple Pear Ginger Crisp. Here's the video:
This wonderful recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free. It contains no refined sugars, only high quality coconut palm sugar. If you've never used this sugar before and you're curious, it has a slightly caramel flavour. You can find it large grocery stores, health food stores, even homesense!
Please rememeber that brown sugar is just white sugar with molasses added and most refined sugar is genetically modified, something you DEFINITELY want to avoid.
What makes this recipe special is the addition of the spices. Ground ginger isn't normally used in crisps, but it's one of my favourite spices because it is incredibly anti-inflammatory meaning it is great for conditions such as arthritis. Even if you don't suffer from any "itis" conditions it is important to eat superfoods like ginger for their anti-inflammatory benefits.
*Quinoa flakes have a very neutral flavour. They are a great source of iron. Here's the brand I used: Gogo Quinoa. They can be purchased at most health food stores or ordered online.
I hope you and your family love this recipe. It can be enjoyed as a healthy dessert or even as a healthy breakfast with some coconut yogurt.
Have a joyous day!
