Apple Crisp (Paleo)

Apple crisp. I loooovvve combining a hot dessert with a cold topping. So good. One of my favorite Fall desserts, in fact. And I know, how dare I mention Fall when everyone has already wrapped their minds around the holidays! Sorry, but I need to pay my respects and eat turkey before I can blast the 24/7 radio Christmas music in my car. I went into Target the day after Halloween and it was already decked out in snowmen and elves. Poor Turkey Day.

Sorry, got off topic…

Anyways, point is, Fall reminds me of apples and since it’s STILL Fall, I’m posting apple crisp 🙂

    My husband makes apple crisp, but the recipe he uses doesn’t call for maple syrup. That sounds like another level of flavor! Thanks for sharing.
