This Healthy Apple Crisp is one of the easiest desserts you can make for an easy weeknight treat, the holidays or special events.
It’s not only simple but it is gluten-free and vegan but it is also refined sugar-free. Other favorite desserts that I love to serve for the holidays are my Vegan Tiramisu, Orange Almond Cake, and my Jamaican Christmas Cake.
How To Make Healthy Apple Crisp
I love to use Bob’s Red Mill Old Fashioned Gluten-Free Rolled Oats because it is a certified Gluten-Free where each batch is produced and tested in a gluten-free facility.
It was so easy to prepare this healthy apple crisp recipe, I peeled and chopped the apples, tossed with maple syrup, tapioca starch (to thicken the apple juice), and spices. I then place filling in a prepared baking dish and topped with oatmeal and almond meal mixture. It is the best vegan apple crisp!
