An apple a day crumbles illness away. Whether you like to bite into an apple, thinly slice an apple to top a salad or eat apples in a pie, this wonderful fruit is affordable and generally available all year round. In the summer time, I go apple picking and make desserts, jams, and pies, and I also freeze apples. This is a great recipe if you have frozen apples to use up. You may find your mouth will water from this delicious vegan and gluten-free apple crisp recipe.

I love this scrumptious recipe because it is light, not overly sweet, and satisfies sweet cravings without increasing your blood sugar too much. I eat this dessert all the time for breakfast or an afternoon snack, and find it fills me up quite quickly.

What I love about homemade desserts and food in general is that you can adjust the sweetness or saltiness according to your own preferences, without having to worry about cross contamination, especially with gluten-free, vegan, and nut-free dietary needs. The fact is, when you are the one cooking, you know exactly what goes into your food, and I think that is key to fully enjoying it. There’s nothing like a home-cooked meal or dessert.

As students, we often live on a tight budget, and our time is scarce. We might not always feel like cooking after a long day at school. But take pride and joy in your baking and cooking, because when those golden-brown apples come out of the oven, with crispy glimmering oats on top, you will appreciate every moment of time and effort that went into making it.
