My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals.

Holiday Coconut Apple Crisp


Ingredients for five 4.40z jars:

  • Apple filling:
    • 3 large granny smith apples
    • ~1/8 cup tapioca starch (or arrowroot starch)
    • 3 tbsp coconut sugar (or zero calorie sweetener, this will change the macros)
    • 3 tbsp raw, organic honey
    • juice from 2 tangerines or mandarins
    • 1 tbsp cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp allspice (optional)
  • Crisp/Crust
    • 3/4 cup rolled oats
    • 2 tbsp coconut flour
    • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
    • 3 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
    • 2 tbsp coconut sugar (or zero calorie sweetener, this will change the macros)
    • 1/2 – 1 tsp cinnamon, depending on preferences
  1. Set oven to 375 F.
  2. Core apples and chop into smaller pieces.
  3. In a bowl, mix chopped apples with all of the ingredients of the pie filling. Stir with a spatula and set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix rolled oats with the ingredients of the pie crisp/crust.
  5. Add apple mixture to jars or medium casserole baking dish, and top with the crust.
  6. Bake in the oven for at least 30 minutes or until the top has browned and the apples are soft.
  7. I enjoyed this with Arctic Zero 150 calorie ice cream.
