Simple Gluten Free Apple Crisp
It's a Sunday afternoon and I feel like this is the first time in weeks that I have had a Sunday that I can just sit, relax and write! With the holidays then gymnastics season starting, life has been non-stop if you can actually believe it could get any busier than my life was before. As moms we think life could not get more busy then more stuff gets piled on. That's mom life reality, especially with 4 kids. However hectic it may get I do love it and embrace it, but I also need a brake at times and today is just amazing.
It's literally the picture perfect day for me to blog about this Apple Crisp recipe that I have been meaning to post for quite a while now. Its cold and snowing outside. It's our first big snow of the season and I'm here all comfy on the couch in the silence of my house. The toddler is napping and my husband has gone out with the other 3 kids!!!!! So thinking of the oven warming the house and enjoying some warm apple crisp is the perfect picture right now.
This recipe does cal for gluten free oats so if you have an oat allergy you will want to skip this one. My suggestion for a substitution would be to sub out the 1/2 cup of gluten free oats for 1/2 cup almond flour. I have not tried that substitution but I should work. If you do substitute I would love for you to leave a comment and let me know how it turns out.
