Maple Pecan Apple Crisp

Maple Pecan Apple Crisp - Heailng and Eating

This maple pecan apple crisp is paleo and vegan friendly, and really easy to make. In fact, I think this may be my new favorite fall dessert. This recipe is naturally sweetened with maple syrup, and the crust is made with chopped pecans and almond flour.  In the future, I would serve it with some vegan vanilla ice cream, but it tastes just as good without. I used Fuji apples, since I had a ton of them in the fridge that needed to be used ASAP.

Overall, I’m really happy that this recipe turned out so well, and I will definitely be making more fruit crisps in the future. I’m thinking persimmons or pears might be next.
