Apple Oats Crisp

Last year apple picking was totally a new experience for all of us including my parents. I know, I made this simple and tasty apple crisp last year and could not get a chance to post it from then. I cant take more excuses to post it. Though I am not so happy with the pictures, I do believe that it tastes much better than it looks; so worth trying it. 
We went to this beautiful apple picking place, and was shocked to see so many varieties of apples. We ended up picking more than we should, which was absolutely fun. They had a store attached, where we got to taste apple cider, which was absolutely yummy ( I was tasting that for the first time) and their donuts, gosh no words....still I can feel that wonderful soft donuts and also bought honey. I always appreciate and prefer the locally made honey.
Well to the recipe now...I wanted to make something simple with these beautiful apples, which are crisp and fresh, as I was tired by end of the day, came up with this simple recipe and by the time I was ready with the dish, it got dark and could not get good enough pictures. Now I can say, maybe that may the reason I didn't post it then. ;)

7 Apples
1 cup Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Butter room temperature
4 tsp fresh Lemon Juice

Almond Butter Cookies - NO Flour - Gluten-Free - 4 Ingredient Fix

The simplest, tastiest and healthiest cookies I have ever made. I should definitely not forget to thank the person who shared this recipe to me, that is, Randi. She is one of the best person's I have met. Thank you so much Randi. I always look for easiest methods to get make things and make the most of the ingredients that I use; so eventually you will end up with using less ingredients. "LESS is always MORE"....I strongly believe in this. The lesser ingredients you use, it enhances the flavor of each ingredient and if you use more, most of the ingredients are hidden. I am not telling that all recipes with lot of ingredients does taste bad, but for some recipes it will give the best results if you use less ingredients, whose end result will always be elegant and tasty.
I liked these cookies more than any other, because it had the right texture that I always look in cookies; kinda soft, melt in the mouth and a very slight crispy outside. 


1 cup Almond Butter (Click HERE for my recipe to make it at home, else you can use a store bought)
2/3 cup Brown Sugar (you can use either white sugar or a combination of both)
1 Egg
1/2 cup Dark Chocolate oven roasted Almonds (I bought the Blue Diamond brand, if you don't have you can use plain roasted almonds)
1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. In a bowl mix all the ingredients except the roasted almonds.
3. Crush/chop these roasted almonds to small pieces and lay it flat on a plate or on a flat surface/counter.
4. Take a scoop of the almond butter cookie dough, roll it to a ball and then flatten a bit and place it over the chopped almonds and cover the two sides.
5. Make all the cookies as in step 4, and place them one by one on a lined baking sheet, leave enough space so that the cookies don't stick to each other.
6. Bake it for about 7-10 mins or until it's done. Enjoy!
