Nothing says Fall like an 🍁 Apple Crisp 🍁. Except for a lot of us, an oaty mixture, as yummy as it tastes, does some serious damage to the gut. And, for most of those “caramely’ crumbles, they’re so full of sugar that they give us a big swoop of energy at the beginning, but make us crash and burn afterwards.
But, this crumble is different. It is loaded with nuts, seeds, and coconut for better digestion and blood sugar. I actually pair it with some dairy free coconut yoghurt!
