This is a great recipe when you have an abundance of apples. Did you go apple picking and pick just a few too many apples? Or have a friend with an apple tree?
This crisp comes together quickly, but the pay off is delicious.
Serve this crisp on its own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert – or with some yogurt for breakfast! We used less sugar than traditional recipes, but it lets you taste the apple’s true sweetness!
*You can easily make this recipe gluten-free (use GF flour) or dairy-free (use vegan butter or coconut oil). You can also play around with the spices and varieties of apples.
