Recipe Notes

To make this grain-free:

For the apples - use tapioca starch instead of the all purpose flour and dissolve inĀ  2 tbs hot water prior to adding to the apple mixture.

For the crumble - use coconut flakes instead of the oats, 3/4 cup almond flour and 1/4 cup tapioca starch instead of the all purpose flour and coconut sugar instead of brown sugar.
