One of our all-time favorite desserts... So perfect with ice cream warm out of the oven. I made some last night for hubby, and ate my choco pudding while he had his apple crisp. A little hard... :-(
Is there *any* way to make this work? Seems to me impossible without going into crossover territory, or just plain cheating if I want a nice crunchy top which is only achieved with a good deal of butter. Even plan approved ice cream and sweeteners still stump me as to what category this would be in.
There is a baked apple recipe in the book which would be similar, but not quite the same, I know. The topping is the hardest. You could try slicing an apple, and making a low fat sauce with water and flavorings like lemon juice, stevia, cinnamon, maple flavoring, or whatever you like, and thickening it with glucomannan. Then you could take just a bit of rolled oats and mix in 1 tsp of melted butter and whatever spices you like, and sprinkling that on top of the apples and sauce. Bake it until it's done, and you could have it with some Tummy Tucking Ice Cream. I would hold off the 1 tsp of added cream in the ice cream though - it works fine with only almond milk. Or you could have it with nonfat Greek yogurt, which is delicious also. This is E, of course. It has a bit more carbs than I think a regular E snack/dessert would have because of the extra oats, but depending on the amount you used it's not too much more. It should be fine I think if you have it say after a Fuel Pull meal, or just make sure it's been about 3 hours since your last meal. It could be your E "meal." Anyway, not exactly a real recipe, but it's an idea.
Emily, I think that's a good idea. Maybe toast the oats on a cookie sheet like making granola to get them REALLY crunchy and top the baked apple AFTER baking, right before serving. If you aren't a purist, maybe you could even toast the oats in the microwave like joseph's pitas?

Found this on plan to eat on a paleo board but edited slightly to make plan approved. Haven't tested it but you could try it! 3 cups apples sliced or chopped 1 Tbs almond meal or other s approved flour or starch stevia of choice 1 tsp cinnamon 1/8 tsp salt 1 Tbs water 1/2 cup oats 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp coconut oil or other dairy-free oil or shortening Directions | Numbered...
Preheat oven to 375.
Grease a 9x9 casserole dish with oil or shortening.
Combine apples through water in a bowl, and pour into casserole dish.
Combine oats through coconut oil in a small bowl with fingers, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle on top of fruit.
Bake 35 minutes, or until fruit is bubbly.

steffanie3: Broth based soups are great for this time of year and a FC I did a modified "cabbage soup diet" soup with some boneless skinless chicken for protein, I just searched for an online recipe and left out some things if I remember right, I love cabbage

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?

steffanie3: Hmm, on the upper right as long as you are logged in there should be a reply button, but you sure can start a new thread if you want

grammalynda: I figured it out-when you do a search it takes you to the conversation-there is not a reply button-but the name of the thread is listed above the date and if you click that it takes you to the thread and the reply button. thanks stefanie3 and rebekahrl

glammom: Any suggestions as to where to purchase MCT oil? All new stuff to me. Purchase many items for plan on-line, some at Kroger, some at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Any suggestions of locations to purchase MCT oil at brick and mortar stores?

steffanie3: GNC would likely have MCT or a health food store that carries Now Brand, that is one easy to find kind.

ttate53787: I have been put on a low residue diet. I am only allowed to eat refined grains. In order to follow this plan now would I just have to give up all breads? Any guidance on this type of diet? Thanks.

steffanie3: I haven't heard of a low residue diet, maybe make a post of a suggested menu you have been given and we could help?

Bryony: After numerous attempts at baking with coconut flour my husband and I just do not like the taste but especially the texture of it. Is there something else I can use in the recipes to replace the coconut flour?
Dec 19, 2014 12:19:20 GMT -5
steffanie3: It depends on the recipe Bryony, is there a certain one you have in mind? Almond flour and oat fiber are used in many yummy baked goods.
Dec 19, 2014 15:07:27 GMT -5
Bryony: Basically all recipes Steffanie. I have so many I would like use. Are almond flour and oat flour and/or oat fiber interchangeable with coconut flour?
Dec 19, 2014 16:01:07 GMT -5
steffanie3: Not really, coconut flour is quite different as it absorbs lots of liquid and works best with plenty of eggs. I tend to like it mixed with other flours.
