Now, I say dessert, but to be quite honest, I had this crisp for lunch the first day I made it….. Then for my afternoon snack the very next day. My new favorite apple dish may taste like a dessert but it has the nutrition breakdown of a healthy afternoon snack. With 7 grams of filling fiber, only 273 calories per generous serving, and all the vitamins and minerals that comes with a dish loaded to the brim with apples, oats, flax, and walnuts, this is bound to become a new fall favorite.

It’s amazing plain but I’ve also topped it with frozen yogurt, whipped cream, and a drizzle of caramel….. All with AMAZING results! My only advice is you might want to double the recipe, because it won’t last long!!
