Healthy Apple Crisp is sweet, delicious, and made with good for you ingredients like apples, oats, coconut, and pecans. It's sweetened with a little bit of coconut sugar and makes the perfect fall dessert.
Friends! It's fall, and to celebrate (err, make up for it. you know how I really feel about autumn) I've got two exciting things I want to share with you. Are you ready for it?
Also, be prepared to fall hard for this Healthy Apple Crisp. It tastes like your best apple crisp dreams, but it's made without any flour, dairy, or refined sugars. I promise no one will notice this ‘healthy' version and you'll be sung praise through muffled, dessert-filled mouths.
Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up in October and I wanted to create a dessert to take to a Friendsgiving celebration. Do you do Friendsgiving, too? We used to call it “Orphan Thanksgiving” and anyone without family nearby was welcome to join. Actually, who am I kidding, everyone is always welcome to join. I once invited so many people to a Friendsgiving dinner that I found no less than 8 people sitting on my bed with plates of turkey dinner in hand. Formalities, like having enough chairs for all the guests, is not something that crosses my mind. #NeverGrowingUp
