Paleo Apple Crisp with Vanilla Caramel Sauce


When hubby and I lived in California, we lived maybe 20 minutes away from a Costco. As you may or not know, Costco is where it is at in terms of offering a wide variety of Paleo Cookbooks. It’s pretty awesome, in my opinion, that you can go into pretty much any Costco store in the US and Canada and pick from an assortment of these books. Here in New Hampshire, however, the nearest Costco is almost an hour from where we live. That just doesn’t make it super practical for our family. We do have a Sam’s Club that is about 20 minutes away, where we have a membership. We shop there regularly, but I’ve only ever seen one Paleo book there, and it’s more of a Paleo Primer, and less of a cookbook. It’s kind of a bummer, but it is what it is. Recently, though, my husband and I checked out our local BJs. They are about 10 minutes from where we live, which is super convenient. They seem to be a bit more expensive than Sam’s Club and Costco, but they also offer way more organic options. Anyway, on our first trip in there, I thought I would take a peak at the book section. Much to my surprise, I found a stack of Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook. It was awesome to see it there, especially since it had just been released that day. So, we grabbed a copy.

Thumbing through the book, there were a bunch of recipes that were on my “Must Make” list, but the first one that I made was her Caramel Apple Crisp recipe. In my husband’s family, there is an apple crisp recipe that is amazing. It’s been in the family forever, apparently, and I wasn’t allowed to have the recipe until we had been married for quite some time. That is still one of my favorite desserts in the entire universe, but it’s not even remotely close to being paleo friendly. So, I figured that now was as good of a time as any to start test driving new recipes.

For this recipe, you also have to make some vanilla caramel sauce. I made this first, and it is amazing. I could probably eat this by the spoon full and not really feel badly about it.

Then I made the apple crisp. This was also amazing. In hindsight, I should have chopped the walnuts into smaller pieces. Overall, though, it was fantastic.

    This looks absolutely delicious! When I was pregnant with one of my boys I had massive apple cravings. Every single day I would eat several apples and do a little microwave version of an apple crisp that I made up! It didn’t look nearly as yummy as this, but when i wanted my craving satisfied in a micro minute, it worked πŸ™‚ lol!
    blessings and smiles,

    OK great, now I’m going to need to buy that cookbook because that dessert is going to haunt me until I make it! I love apple crisps, but the caramel sauce looks like it would take it to the next level. Yum…

      Thank you Lisa! I have found that most paleo recipes tend to be hits with non Paleo eaters, too. That’s one of the reasons I think we’ve been able to stick with it. The food doesn’t taste like you are missing out on anything.

      The recipe calls for maple sugar, which, falls into the same grey area as maple syrup. It’s an occasional treat, for sure, but better than a refined sugar.

      I am definitely more of an “all things apple” person in the fall than a “all things pumpkin” person. I’d take an apple crisp any day of the week though, and this caramel sauce was amazing!
