Origins

USDA Organic, NON-GMO Verified

Yacon is a perennial plant found in Peru, Bolivia, Northern Argentina, as well as in Nepal. It is one of the many organic crops that Global Family Farms fosters, to create economic opportunities for communities in rural Nepal.

Once harvested, mineral rich juice is extracted from the yacon tubers and slowly heated to yield a golden brown syrup with a delicious, fruity flavor. Unlike other sweeteners, yacon is high in FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides), a family of prebiotics, known to promote growth of probiotics (healthy intestinal microbiological populations) and improve digestive health.

Yacon is also a low calorie, low-glycemic index sweetener, and therefore may be helpful to those with blood sugar sensitivities or metabolic syndrome. However, if you have such conditions, as always, be sure to consult your physician before using.

Easy Slow Cooker Apple Crisp Recipe (Gluten Free)

If you’re looking for a healthy dessert, this slow cooker apple crisp recipe is for YOU! It’s so easy to make and is full of delicious warming spices and seasonal apples. Plus, the crumble topping is bursting with healthy fats and fiber from the oats, nuts, and ghee. Vegetarian and Paleo friendly, too, with a savvy substitution.

I went with a mixed nut combo of pecans and walnuts and oats. Add just a little bit of anti-inflammatory cinnamon and a smidgen of organic raw coconut sugar, Yacon – a low-glycemic sweetener, and you’re good to go.

Origins

INGREDIENTS

For the filling:

  • 12 organic apples, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon organic ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon organic ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic allspice
  • 2 tablespoons organic raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon organic cornstarch

For the topping:

  • 1/4 cup organic yacon syrup
  • 1 cup organic raw pecans
  • 1 cup organic raw walnuts
  • 1 cup organic gluten free oats
  • 1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons grass-fed ghee (I recommend Sprouts brand)

INSTRUCTIONS

In a large crockpot, combine apples with spices, vinegar and cornstarch. Stir to combine.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine all of the topping ingredients. Pulse until coarsely chopped. You want it to be crumbly and well-mixed, but not too fine. Cover the apple mixture with the crumb topping.

Place a dishtowel over the top of the crockpot and cover with the lid. Cook on high for 3 hours.
