Organic Apple Crisp

Who doesn’t love the smell of apple crisp baking in the oven? Whenever I buy too much fruit I try to think of ways to use it before it goes bad. I bought way too many apples this week, so I used some up in the delicious, organic apple crisp dessert. I always try to cut down the sugar as much as I can, especially because I use Gala apples which are already sweet. If you use tart apples like the green ones you may want to keep the amount of sugar the same or increase it a little.

Tonight I went on a run and when I came home I was too lazy to cook dinner for myself so I made a gourmet Trader Joe’s frozen pizza for dinner…I know…Now you know I must be tired since I almost never turn down cooking on any given day. Three more weeks until spring break and no more worrying about school for a bit. What’s your favorite fruit dessert?? XoXo

    Look amazing! Apple Crisp is one of my favorite desserts! Actually, don’t tell anyone, but I may even like it better the peanut butter. Your apple crisp recipe is perfect and it looks beautiful. I’m having a lazy night too, I’m making Trader Joe’s Chicken Sernada. I never had it before, hope I like it! Have a good night!
