  • 8-10 crisp apples (I chose a mixture of apple varieties, including Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and Honeycrisp)
  • 1/2 lemon (approximately 3 tbsp)
  • Almond meal (approximately 1 1/2 cups)
  • Sea Salt (approximately 1/4 tbsp)
  • All-Natural Honey (approximately 2 tbsp)
  • Butter (approximately 5 tbsp, also make sure it’s real butter, cold, and cut into chunks)
  • Cinnamon (approximately 1 tbsp)
  • Walnuts (chopped, approximately 1 cup)


  1. Wash and cut the apples into thin slices (recommended 1/4 inch slices). Reminder to remove the seeds!
  2. Layer the apple slices almost to the top of a baking dish and squeeze 1/2 cut lemon over the apples. AppleCrisp4
  3. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  4. Combine the remaining ingredients into your Cuisinart mixer and pulse for about 10 minutes until you get a crumble topping. AppleCrisp3

As a holiday tradition, my best friend Jennifer and I get together to bake a special dessert and watch our guilty-pleasure movie favorite, The Holiday.

Here’s Jennifer looking cute-as-ever with her baby bump. She definitely has that beautiful pregnancy glow!
