Fall Apple Crisp!

(This would also make a fabulous pear/peach/plum crisp, in place of apples)

Fall is here, and time to bust out the cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice! I love this dessert because it requires exactly zero added sugar of any kind, zero gluten, and zero guilt. Full of wholesome ingredients and some superfoods, feel free to eat half the pan!

You will need:
4-5 apples, your choice (I used Granny Smith)
2 overripe bananas
1Tbs vanilla (i used bourbon vanilla extract)
1tsp pumpkin pie spice (optional)
2Tbs or so of cinnamon, to taste (I like lots)

for the crisp:
2Tbs almond butter, melted (or sunbutter for nut-free)
1Tbs grass fed butter, melted (optional, subs coconut oil for vegan)
2 Tbs chia seeds
2Tbs flax seeds
2Tbs slivered almonds (optional)
1/2 cup gluten free oats
dash of salt (optional, i omit if just cooking for us)

Preheat to 350, chop apples into small chunks, 1/2 in max
mash both bananas, then mix in apples, vanilla and spices.
Spray pan with non-stick spray of choice.
Fold apple mix into pan.
Then melt your butters, combine remaining ingredients and knead together to make a crumble. Sprinkle over top of apples, and bake uncovered for approx 30minutes, till topping begins to crisp and apples are soft.

Enjoy ala mode, or with cottage cheese as I did, because we didn’t have ice cream, and I’m trying to increase my protein intake, haha!
