Spiced apples swimming with sweet butter and caramel baked in a soft, flaky crust.
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6-8

Ingredients
  • 5 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • ½ cup quinoa flour
  • ⅓ cup arrowroot flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon xanthum gum
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon, separated
  • 1 cup butter, chilled and cut into chunks, plus ½ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons water, plus an additional 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • ¾ cup coconut palm sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, lightly whipped

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a pie pan with butter. Whisk brown rice flour, quinoa flour, arrowroot flour, salt, xanthum gum, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. Using hands, mix 1 cup chilled butter chunks into the flour mixture until it starts to become doughy. Add 2 tablespoons of water, lemon juice, and maple syrup and continue to mix with fingers. Cut dough in half. Press half of the dough into the bottom of the greased pie pan. Set the other half of the crust dough aside.
  2. For the filling, melt ½ cup butter in a saucepan. Stir in 3 tablespoons almond flour, 2 tablespoons water, coconut palm sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Bring to a simmer. Reserve some of the sauce to pour over the crust right before baking. Take the main portion of the sauce and mix in a large bowl with the apple slices to coat them. Place apple mixture in the prepared crust, mounded slightly.
  3. Flatten out the second half of the dough, and cut into 6 strips. Place 3 strips horizontally and 3 strips vertically over the apples. Brush the egg over the top of the crust. If remaining sauce has thickened, heat on the stove for a minute or two until liquid. Gently pour the remaining sauce over the top crust. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool and enjoy. I actually like this best after being in the refrigerator overnight.

Lightly crisp edges, a gooey center, and an irresistible taste that will warm your soul.
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24

Ingredients
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup arrowroot flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ (1½ sticks) cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (will be used right before baking the cookies)

Instructions
  1. Whisk together almond flour, brown rice flour, arrowroot flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until well-combined. Set aside.
  2. Use an electric mixer on medium speed to combine butter and coconut palm sugar. Mix in egg and vanilla. Stir dry ingredients into the wet mixture in ½ cup increments, incorporating thoroughly between each addition until combined. Fold ½ cup chocolate chips into batter. Cover bowl and refrigerate for 24-48 hours (this is a critical step in making the perfect cookie. If you’re craving a cookie now, make one or two, but refrigerate the rest of the dough for at least 24 hours before baking).
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a cookie sheet with butter.
  4. Roll dough into golf ball sizes, and press a small handful of the remaining ½ cup chocolate chips into the top of each cookie dough ball. Place 6 on a sheet at a time to give them room to spread. Bake for 10-15 minutes until edges are golden brown. Keep dough in the fridge between batches.
  5. Remove from oven and allow cookies cool. Eat ravenously.

    I saw the two days course on CreativeLive and now I’m very exited to incorpore this into my Lifestyle. I am a yo-yo type guy in terms of nutrition and weight-loss, but very interested in science and how the body works. I read books like “body by science” and others to understand how to dose the right amount of food-excersice-sleep for success. After seeing your course and listening to your podcast I now understand how to eat real quality food and leave grains and processed food apart.

    This recipies are excellent, thought the cookies take too long (Total time
    48 hours 12 mins) :)

    Cheers from Argentina. Thank you for helping people.

    Regards,
    Facundo

      Glad you enjoy the CreativeLIVE presentation! Thanks so much for your support! A little planning ahead for those cookies is all it takes. Trust me, their worth it ;) – Emily, FBM Team

  • Andrew says:

    Is there a substitute for the rice flour in the cookies. Rice more often then not gives me a head ache. I don’t know if this will but if I can avoid it I will. Thanks

    • Emily Dewey says:

      For sure, there are a ton of gluten-free flour options out there: coconut flour, almond flour, buckwheat flour, quinoa flour etc… Do a bit of Googling about substituting though, as different flours need different amounts of liquids etc… Happy cooking! – Emily, FBM Team
