Like so many, I did my part for Passover. I bought a box a matzo. Because nothing says understanding the plight of the Jewish people like a box of Matzo. *OK, so that same box is still in the pantry half full but it was the thought of the purchase that counts. To top off Passover, I also attended the family Seder.
During the course of the evening, I discovered that I have no taste for Tzimmas , brisket cooked with prunes, go figure. But I did discover that while the holiday limits the range of desserts that can be included, almond flour makes an excellent and nutritious substitute. In this almond apple crisp, not only are ingredients parve for Pesach, they are also gluten-free. *A dessert that is so healthy is not usually my thing; however, I also brought a flourless chocolate cake that balanced the usage of calories. Apples, almond flour, spices, honey, oil and salt...that's it!
Serve with ice cream and the dessert is complete.
