This is thee best apple crisp recipe with a buttery, crunchy-oat streusel topping spread over warm, sweet apples. It’s gluten free, dairy free, and vegan to boot.
From October to February we are bombarded with all kinds of holidays. Not that March doesn’t have any holidays, but St. Patrick’s Day isn’t a huge affair at my house–at least not now that the kids are pretty much all grown up.
I’m working on a cookbook right now with a publishing company! Yep, you heard it right. It is a holiday cook book featuring recipes for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas and will go on sale in September. I’m super excited. It has been a huge undertaking–more so than I thought, but it will have more than 80 recipes full of illustrations and pictures! C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E!!
Because I’ve been baking so much, I’ve had the chance to sample all kinds of delicious and savory dishes and this apple crisp recipe tops the list. It’s one of my favorite! It won’t be in the cookbook, but it’s definitely a keeper!
