Apple crisp has to be one of my favorite desserts. It's a comfort food, it's delicious, and if you think about it - it contains two main ingredients that the body thrives on. Substitute a few of the other ingredients for healthier options, and you have a much more nutritional way to enjoy this comfort food. Apples and oats are some of my everyday staples for food. As I was planning my menu for this upcoming week, I remembered I had apples I needed to use before they went bad. The apple crisp idea immediately came to me. This is a cleaner way to make it. It may not taste as sweet and fabulous as you grew up with, but since it is such a healthier alternative, it's worth it.

- 1 cup of health oats
- 1 cup of unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

- Slice apples
- Mix Stevia, cinnamon, and a tablespoon of flour all together in a small bowl.
- Spray pan of choice with nonstick spray
- Place apples along the bottom of pan
- Sprinkle dry ingredients over apples
- Pour half a cup of unsweetened almond milk over apples and sweetened mixture.
- In a medium-large sized bowl mix oats, half a cup of almond milk, 2 tablespoons of flour, light brown sugar, butter, and any other optional ingredients you wish to add
- Pour mixture over top of the apples - the mixture should be bettwen thick and creamy to crumbled.
- Bake for 45-55 minutes. I usually bake longer because I like the apples really soft.
