Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

Although I am a summer gal myself, I do love fall. There is something so magical about the leaves changing colors and wearing a cozy sweater outside. I also love apple crisp but somehow I have never created my own gluten-free one. Until now! 

I used the base of the recipe for my Gluten-Free Blueberry Crisp but changed it up a bit by using Seven Sundays Blueberry Chia Buckwheat Muesli. Side note: my family is now obsessed with their cereal. I love that they use simple ingredients, no refined sugars, and it tastes amazing. Immediately, I knew after my first bite that I needed to use it for my next recipe. 

This apple crisp has the perfect sweet, crisp topping with soft, cinnamon apples. The perfect dessert or breakfast {don't you love when it dessert can act as a breakfast too?!}. The warm apple smell that will fill your house is worth making this recipe. 

Most apple crisp recipes have so much added sugars so I am happy to say that this one is refined sugar-free – sweetened with only pure maple syrup. 

As with any recipe, feel free to customize it to your liking. If you love cinnamon, add some more! I didn't peel the skin off the apples {because I was too lazy} but feel free to do that if you don't like the skin. 

You can even prepare this ahead of time and store in the fridge for a day or two. Then pop in the oven when you are ready! 

Proving that good nutrition can be easy + simple + delicious one recipe at a time.
