Healthier Apple Crisp

October means Fall

And I think we can all agree that Fall means jeans, boots, hoodies, sweaters, soup, crock-pot meals, caramel apples, candy corn, football and apple crisp.

Apple Crisp is a highly requested dessert in our house.   There is something SO YUMMY about warm apples and cinnamon.

Of course, I am always toying around with recipes attempting to make them just a little bit healthier.

For this recipe I went the oatmeal route instead of flour, substituted half of the butter for yogurt and used brown sugar substitute rather than regular brown sugar.  That last step is completely optional as it isn’t the ‘natural’ way, however, I like to use sugar substitutes on occasion.   All that added sugar creeps me out sometimes.

I used an obsessive amount of cinnamon in this recipe.  I can’t get enough of the smell or taste.  You might find it to be a bit of an overkill.  If so, take it down a notch, but don’t tell me.   I’ll think less of you.

The recipe is incredibly easy and takes no time to put together and throw it in the oven.   Your house will be smelling like fall goodness in 5 minutes flat.

The husband wanted you to know that he approves, but, I also want you to note the amount of melted ice cream in that bowl.

And THAT ladies and gents, is exactly why I try and make recipes healthier.
