Apple Tart

Ingredients:

  • One 9″ GFCF pie crust
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed quinoa flakes
  • 1/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 1/2 cup GFCF flour
  • 1/2 stick unsalted GFCF margarine
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. golden syrup (corn syrup) or cane syrup
  • 13 oz can sliced pie apples

Preparation:

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Combine flakes, sugar and sifted flour in a large bowl and make a well in the center
  • Combine the margarine and syrup in a small pan
  • Stir over low heat until the margarine has melted, then add to the dry ingredients
  • Stir until well combined
  • Spread the pie apple in the pie crust
  • Spoon the flake mixture on top and smooth out with the back of a spoon
  • Bake for 30 mins at 350F or until golden brown
  • Leave in the tin for 15 mins before cutting for serving 
  • Goes well with whipped topping or GFCF vanilla ice-cream

Notes:

I’ve struggled in the past with consistently consuming all nine amino acids and this has had negative effects on my health over the years. Implementing quinoa into my diet and multiple recipes ended up being the savior that I hadn’t anticipated as I could consume all nine amino acids without much work. This recipe specifically calls for quinoa flakes, which are one of the main gluten-free alternatives to wheat grains that I use. 

Here are some reasons why you should be including quinoa in your diet:

  • Quinoa is high in fiber , which can help with digestive issues and may help lower risk of intestinal cancer.
  • Quinoa is considered a superfood and for good reason, as it provides all nine amino acids.
  • Quinoa is a whole grain and whole grains have been proven to help lower the risk of diabetes and cancer.
  • Quinoa is a great source of antioxidants, which can aid in decreasing the risk of heart disease.
