One of my favorite things about fall are the desserts! I love fall spices like cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger! They make everything taste like fall!

Ever since I was a kid, one of my moms fall dessert staples was Apple Crisp. It’s probably one of my favorite desserts ever! She would make it all fall (and still does) and it’s always gone really fast!

When I went gluten free (for my skin), I couldn’t eat my mom’s Apple Crisp anymore. I searched and searched online for a good gluten free Apple Crisp recipe and fell short in finding one. NONE of the recipes I found were to my liking. I like soft apples and a crispy coating and none of the recipes I found were providing that for me. Either the apples were covered in oil so they were slimy, the “crisp” on top wasn’t crispy enough and sometimes soggy, or they just didn’t taste like fall.

Failure to find a good gluten free Apple Crisp online led me to swap the ingredients in my mom’s recipe to make it gluten free (which is what I should’ve done in the first place.) Not only is it gluten free, but I’ve also made it dairy free and refined sugar free too! And it still tastes just like fall!
