Serves: 2Hands-on: 10 minutesTotal: 35 minutesDifficulty: Easy

Serves: 2


  • 1 large sweet apple, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. 100% natural grape juice
  • 1⁄2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 3⁄4 tsp. cinnamon, divided
  • 4 Medjool dates
  • 1⁄2 Tbsp. almond butter
  • 2 Tbsp. almond meal


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the diced apple with grape and lemon juices and 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon.
  • Fill small ramekins with the apple mixture. Place ramekins on a baking sheet on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 20 minutes, until the apples are softened but not totally tender.
  • Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine dates, 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon, and almond butter. Process until combined. Add almond meal and process until just mixed.
  • Remove the apples from the oven, sprinkle the crisp topping over the tops, and return to the oven for another 5 minutes. Alternatively, broil for 30 seconds to achieve an even crispier top. Cool slightly before serving.
