Apple Crisp

Autumn Equinox is here! As hard as it is to say goodbye to hot summer days and lots of sunshine, there’s something about the fresh, golden light of fall that just feel like a perfect change. Almost like the world knows exactly what we need to prepare for the winter ahead. 

I’m back in the blogging world after little hiatus to go on an adventure for a year. I just didn’t have the same resources to keep creating recipes where I was, but now I’m happy to be back to baking experiments and my usual kitchen routine.  And what better way to celebrate both that and the beginning of the new season with a fall-inspired recipe? Sure, pumpkin is all the rage, but put down that pumpkin spice latte for just a moment and give this crisp a try. Soft, sweet apples and crispy oats, lightly sweetened with maple syrup and spiced with a good dose of cinnamon. You can almost hear the leaves crunching under your feet.dsc_0018
