Warm Apple Crisp

by Brittany on August 8, 2011

I took advantage of my first non-lunchbox lunch in smoothie form. To ease this mini-sickness that is residing in my throat, I created one of my favorite antioxidant-packed Green Monsters (If you don’t know what a green monster is, ask Angela) ;)

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Ice
  • Pinch of Xanthan Gum (a little goes a long way with this stuff
  • Topped with chia seeds and kamut puffs

I did some Bodyrock, a little bit of stretching,and proceeded to blog from my yoga mat Hot smile

& now, it’s recipe time!

If you asked my mother to resort to eating one dessert for the rest of her life, rest assured that this would be it. No brownies. No cookies. No double-fudge chocolate Sundaes (go figure..) No sweet treat would ever stand in the way of her love for a home-baked warm apple crisp with vanilla ice cream.

For dinner on Saturday night, I decided to play favorite child again and make all of her wildest of dreams come true.

The Betty Crocker recipe is the one I had a kid growing up. My mom had an old Betty cookbook that she got in high school… today it’s still her go to cookbook for almost everything!

I fah-reaking love apple crisp. I NEVER make it, but I’ll get it at fairs and stuff and it ALWAYS makes me think of fall in New England. I made some walnut cinnamon energy balls today and they taste like apple crisp topping – so delicious.

The apple crisp looks soooo good. Fruit crumbles are a really popular dessert in the UK and they are my absolute favourite – I think rhubarb might be the best filling.

Oh wow, that apple crisp looks to die for! I am usually a chocolate dessert person, but if a really good apple crisp or apple pie is there, that may win out haha. I hope you feel better soon!

Mmm. Warm apple crisp/pie with a bit of vanilla ice cream holds a special place in my heart. It’s probably one of my mom’s favorite desserts to make, too, so it always reminds me of her because she bakes one up for pretty much any/every special occasion. I’m more of a chocolate lover, myself, but apple crisp is definitely fabulous… especially now that apples will be coming into season :D

Itty Bits of Balance August 9, 2011 at 9:23 am

You and me the same, girl– I’m TOTALLY a chocolate lover over anything else!

There aren’t many desserts better than apple crisp with vanilla bean ice cream..carrot cake and cheesecake come in close. :) I love puffed kamut on top of my smoothies too..adds a flavorful(and healthy) crunch!

Yea Baby!!! This would be my mom’s dessert for the rest of her life too!!! I would choose a nice chocolate cake, but she loves apples!!

YUMMY!! I can’t wait to try this recipe!!

I love crisps and crumbles and yours looks sooo good. I make a nobake raw vegan GF one that I need to make again. It’s almost fall apple season!

Itty Bits of Balance August 9, 2011 at 9:25 am

Ooo! I’m going to have to check that out– I’m actually allergic to egg whites & wheat and could not take part in this crisp recipe :(
But thanks Averie, you’re giving me hope! haha

Yum! I am going to have to try this crisp. Looks delish! Can’t wait for apples to be in season this Fall. Although, I will miss all of the amaaaazing summer fruits that are in season now. I also love your Green Smoothies, yum, I love green smoothies and just smoothies in general. :)
