Apple Crisp Low Fat Apple Crisp Low Fat Apple Crisp Low Fat

3 c chopped apples (1 1/2 - 2 pounds ~3 1/2-4 medium apples)
1 Tbs sugar
1 Tbs lemon juice
1/2 tsp grated lemon zest from 1 lemon
Mix these ingredients together right in the 8" pan or 9" pie plate (we prefer to use stoneware or glass)

*For cooking apple crisp low fat, use equal amounts of Granny Smith and McIntosh apples ~or whatever apples you have!
*Peel, core and chop apples into ~1 inch chunks (you can leave the skin on if you want added nutrition, but it does make the texture slightly different).

Topping Mixture
1/4 cup flour (you can use any kind of flour, rice flour is a nice option and gluten free)
1/4 cup Flakes o' Gold or Ground Premium Gold Flaxseed
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 Tbs maple syrup (or you can substitue 2 Tbs brown sugar and 1/2 Tbs water)
1 Tbs water
Optional: 1/2-3/4 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or almonds
Optional: if you like oats in your apple crisp topping, add 1/4 cup Oats and 1/2 Tbs water.

*Mix these ingredients together in a medium size bowl. Do not overmix. Topping should be soft and easy to drop on top of filling.

Heat oven to 375*, Bake in middle position of oven for 45 minutes until fruit is bubbling and topping is deep golden brown.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
Flax Apple Crisp low fat is Delicious with whipped cream or ice cream (low fat of course :) on the side!

To switch up the flax apple crisp, add nectarines, peaches, pears or plums to replace a portion of the apples. Just make the total fruit for the Fruit Crisp a total of 3 cups.

Chop the nectarines, peaches, and plums into half-inch wedges, and cut pears into 1 inch chunks. When using plums, add 1 Tbs cornstarch or quick tapioca to the fruit filing.

For additional flavor enhancement, add 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger.

Serves 4-5
If you want a larger apple crisp to serve 10, double the recipe and use a 9x13 pan, Bake at 375* for 55 minutes.

Light apple crisp with flax is a perfect option for any day (of course, especially the Holidays)!

"Even at the full price the Cold Milled Flax is still cheaper than Metamucil or other fiber supplements that run about $12 for only 15 ounces! That's a great deal!"

"Ellie, Thanks for your email. Just a short testament: Have been trying for years to get my cholesterol numbers to be on the healthy side. Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again."

"I have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes + Constipation being my top complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax seed, I was drinking fiber daily + lived on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber."

"My hot flashes were so bad and I had up to 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat and a red face during conversations.... Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks."

"The best thing that happened is that it has really helped stabilize my blood sugar. When blood sugar is stable without a lot of peaks + valleys, it's easier to lose weight + I'm game for that."
-- Thanks, Sherrie
