Paleo Apple Crisp
Sugar, grain, dairy and egg free, you can feel so good about indulging in this apple crisp! I'm still working through my giant bag of apples that I picked a few weeks ago, and this recipe was a delicious way to use some up.
There is nothing better than the smell of cinnamon and apples baking in the oven. My house smelled so delicious last night, and I couldn't resist trying some of this crisp hot out of the oven for dessert.
The apples get so tender from baking in the oven, the almond meal topping gets nice and crisp and the edges caramelize. Yum. And of course nothing is better than topping this with coconut milk vanilla ice cream that melts all over the top.
Just writing about this crisp today makes me so excited to enjoy another bowlful tonight. Trust me, you would never believe this crisp is healthy and paleo because it tastes so decadent. You have to try it!
