My eldest daughter's 18th birthday is Sunday, and once again, she'd rather not have cake, which is fine with us. Hers is the second of five birthdays in a two month period, so it's a welcomed change! Hope you'll enjoy this as much as we do! --LKR
Note: By all means, use butter in place of the oil. I just make it this way when trying to stay away from dairy or while doing a detox.
Grease a 10x6x2" baking dish with sesame, apricot, olive, or safflower oil. Place 4 cups of sliced apples in a 10x6x2" baking dish. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 cup of water.
In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup of rice flour with 1/3 cup of any oils listed above. Blend with a spoon 'til crumbly. Slowly add about 1 cup of either honey or maple syrup and continue to mix with spoon.
Drop mixture on top of apples, and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
The nice thing about this dessert is you don't have to be exact about any of the ingredients. You could add more apples, or use less; make more of the crumbled topping, or less; add more cinnamon or sweetener, or less of either of them.
