Have you ever considered adding prebiotic fiber to your baked goods? It might sound a little woo-woo but it really isn’t.
It’s the end of September, which means I can officially start with the apple recipes – my first being these single-serve apple crisp!
They’re delicious, nutritious, and are pretty quick and easy to make. I added in prebiotic fiber from Silverfern to make these gut-healthy and friendly.
Gluten-Free Single-Serve Apple Crisps
crunchy, yummy, and even better topped with ice-cream.
- 3 cups apples (peeled and chopped)
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup water
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 1 1/2 cup oats
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
- 1/4 cup coconut flakes
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 and line a muffin tin with paper liners or spray the inside with cooking spray.
For the apple filling, chop and peel the apples, and combine the rest of the ingredients in one bowl.
For the oatmeal filling, beat an egg in one bowl. Then add in the other wet ingredients. In another bowl add the dry ingredients together, then add the dry to the wet.
Pour the oatmeal filling in the cups, then place the apples in the middle.
Bake for 15 minutes.
In the meantime, add together topping ingredients in another bowl.
Pull out the tin, and sprinkle the topping. Place bake in the oven to bake for another 10-15 minutes.
Serve with vanilla icecream and enjoy!
As you can see from the recipe, these single-serves only take a few ingredients. I think a lot of times it’s easy to over-complicate recipes that don’t really need to be overcomplicated!
I hope you find these are tasty and easy to make as I did.
With this recipe, you have the option of adding in a fiber supplement as I did. It’s pretty easy to miss out on your fiber intake each day if you’re not actively trying to eat fiber, so this is a great alternative for me!
Why prebiotic fiber?
As I mentioned above, it’s easy to skip out on your fiber intake each day, and that can be problematic in many different ways. The Tino prebiotic fiber from the Silver Fern Brand is a water-soluble, high fiber supplement that helps increase healthy gut bacteria.
I love adding Tino fiber to my baked goods because it is an easy way to up my fiber count, while not doing anything to upset my stomach.
Benefits of fiber
Not all supplements are created equal, and fiber is no exception. Having a high-quality fiber is so important because if not, it can wreak havoc on your intestinal tract.
Some of the benefits of high-quality soluble fiber include: improving overall gastrointestinal health, regulate digestion, improving overall digestive health, maintains healthy blood sugar levels already within a normal range, as well as helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range.
Fiber also supports bone health, joint support, and immune system support.
Other ways you can get fiber: lentils, lima beans, blackberries, artichokes, brussels sprouts, and many others.
As always, if you try out these single-serve apple crisps let me know and tell me how it was! This one will not disappoint.
