Life Changing Apple Crisp {gf, v, rsf}

Updated: Sep 29, 2021

Another bag of fresh apples from the orchard most definitely calls for homemade apple crisp. My dad has made this every year growing up, but it was my turn to take a stab at it, and include my favorite baking swaps. This recipe is naturally sweetened with dates, coconut sugar, maple syrup, and of course— apples! It’s also packed with hearty oats and nuts, almond flour, creamy almond butter, coconut butter, and other nutrient dense baking swaps. I love the balance between the melty, spiced apples and the crunchy cinnamon crumble. The crumble is a quick, one blender process, so this recipe is done in no time. You don’t want to miss this one— it is gluten free, vegan, and refined sugar free!
