Easy plant-based apple crisp recipe

Fall is my favorite season of the year. The smell of freshly fallen leaves on the damp ground, light sweaters, blue jeans, riding boots and pumpkin everything (right-I know this isn’t a pumpkin recipe, but had to throw that in! I know you can relate!). It’s the time of year when I find myself doing the most cooking and baking since I am in love with hearty fall fruits and vegetables. Apples are in abundance at the end of August and what better way to celebrate the beginning of fall then with a quick and easy plant-based apple crisp recipe!

Apple crisp recipeMy stepmom came up to visit this week and brought a peck of freshly picked apples from a farm stand in Oaktown, Indiana. The first thing I thought of when I saw the bag of apples was apple crisp. It’s an American staple and one of my all-time favorite desserts. It’s also extremely easy to make vegan or plant-based by simply substituting the butter with vegan butter or margarine and replacing the sugars with organic sugar. It’s also one of the easiest desserts to make and you can sub in your favorite stone fruit in place of apples if your tummy desires.

I just had a baby less than 3 weeks ago and was able to make this apple crisp recipe while he napped (with a few minor interruptions). That is how easy it is. My family enjoyed this dessert for days and I cannot wait to make it again! I hope you like it as much as we do. Please share comments below after you’ve tried it. I love to hear from you guys!
