Gluten-Free Apple Crisp for Two

by | Updated: March 20th, 2018 | Read time: 1 minute

An all-American classic, apple crisp is a fall favorite that’s easy enough for anyone to make. The steps couldn’t be simpler: chop your apples, mix up a crumbly topping, sprinkle it on and bake. Unlike other recipes, this one’s gluten free and can be made vegan easily (just swap out the honey for a few drops of vanilla-flavored liquid stevia). In fact, you can leave out the sweetener altogether if you use a sweeter apple—try Gala instead of green Granny Smiths.
