What Makes This Pinworthy?

For all apple pie and crisp lovers, this recipe is a must-try. The cinnamon and maple syrup make this dish a knockout, and it all pairs so well with cold vanilla ice cream. There is also the perfect ratio of fruit to crisp, something that can be hard to achieve. Be prepared for this dessert to disappear quickly- the crisp portion is truly irresistible.

A wonderful aspect to this recipe is that it is a slightly healthier take on a very traditional dish. This recipe uses less butter than traditional crisps, so the end result consists of tender cinnamon apple bites with a crunchy topping.

Another great aspect to this recipe is that not only is it easy to prepare, but it also uses ingredients commonly found in the average well-stocked kitchen. Just be sure to have apples on hand (and potentially substitute the almond meal with all purpose flour), and this dessert can be made in a moment’s notice.
