Healthier Apple Crisp Recipe

November 20, 2017

 

Who doesn't love Apple Crisp recipes?  I created this recipe to incorporate some healthier fats and a better sugar option.   The coconut sugar is a great refined sugar substitute; it carries a lower glycemic load than its counterpart (i.e. wont spike your blood sugar as much as regular sugar) and contains additional vitamins and minerals since its not refined.  When buying coconut sugar, check the ingredients to ensure it is not mixed with other sugars.  Just note, coconut sugar is still sugar and should be used sparingly, but is totally OK for a yummy treat once in a while :)
