This week, I wanted to share one of my favourite quick after dinner dessert recipes. I made this for my boyfriend and I for Valentine’s Day after our yummy dinner at home of steak and asparagus. A special dinner just isn’t complete without dessert, am I right?? I love apple pie! It’s the best classic dessert that everyone enjoys…seriously who doesn’t with all its cinnamon and sugary goodness. The way this apple crisp fills your home with its lovely scent will be sure to have neighbors knockin’ on your door.
Unfortunately, I never have time to make it when I’m craving it or really feel like making an entire pie… ever. I always have these ingredients in my home so it’s easy to whip up whenever the cravings strike! Desserts that are small are so perfect so then I’m not forced to eat it all week and then feel guilty about it. 1 or 2 treats per week is plenty for me 🙂 . I used these cute porcelain ramekins for my dessert. They are so versatile and the perfect personal sized treat.
This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy free and vegan but make sure to use certified gluten-free oats and soy-free Earth Balance if required.
I’d love for you to try my recipe. Please tag me on Instagram @balancingandie so I can see your lovely creations.
Feel free to substitute another nut for pecans like almonds or walnuts or you can omit altogether. You can also substitute regular butter for the Earth Balance. I use the soy-free Earth Balance but there are many varieties and you can use whichever fits your dietary requirements.
2 Granny Smith apples
1/3 cup quick cooking oats (gluten-free if required)
