Maple Almond Apple Crumble Recipe



applesLast week The Farmer and I were invited to our son’s place for supper, and I agreed to bring a dessert.  I planned to make the Maple Almond Apple Crisp that I posted last week.  When I went to Trader Joe’s to buy more sliced almonds,  I found these Dry Roasted Honey Almonds (sliced) and decided to modify the recipe slightly.   Since the almonds are sweet, I eliminated the brown sugar, and added a little nutmeg with the cinnamon.   I decided to leave out the all purpose flour and keep just the almond meal…it turned out crumbly and crunchy with delicious flavor!honey roasted almonds

This new version is something special!   My son and his girlfriend shared their batch with her parents, who even sent an e-mail to tell me how much they enjoyed it.   I’m going back to Trader Joe’s  today to buy more apples and honey roasted almonds so I can make  some this weekend.  And yes, I’ll share the recipe with you too!
