I’ve been trying to eat healthier lately, and one of the first things to go was dessert. Unfortunately, my sweet tooth didn’t get the memo. I’ve been craving sweets and looking for some healthy alternatives. Being on any sort of restricting diet is hard for me to begin with (I have almost no self-control when it comes to food), but it’s especially hard when I’m trying to create new recipes for the blog. I hate trying to figure out what I can and cannot eat, instead of being creative and experimenting in the kitchen. To change things up, and satisfy my sweet tooth, I decided to try to recreate one of my favorite desserts, all while following the “rules” to the letter.
Apple Crisp. It’s one of my favorite fall desserts, and the basic components are pretty healthy: apples, oats, spices. What isn’t so healthy is everything else that gets added: butter, sugar, ice cream, caramel. Could apple crisp still be delicious without all those extras?
