Vegan Apple Crisp

Vegan & Grain-Free Apple Crisp

Written by Denae

Warm, fall-infused, comforting, vegan, and grain-free. These all make the perfect combination for a delicious apple crisp.

My favorite apples for apple crisp are the classic tart Granny Smith, and the juicy sweet Honeycrisp. Since they are both firm and crisp apples, they don’t become mush when they’re baked. 

The topping is another vital part. Since trying to stay away from grains, I’ve had to experiment with toppings while I make recipes. Originally I started with purely nuts, then threw in coconut, then I found quinoa flakes from Ancient Harvest. These flakes have changed how I make meatballs, crumbles, oatmeal, the list goes on. 

Enjoy this warm and sweet dessert,

Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Meatball Meal_6-01

One of my very best friends, Melissa, introduced me to these meatballs. Since I don’t eat grains I decided to change them up a little bit, and I was really pleased with how they turned out — even though they didn’t have oats! 

We are big on making freezer meals, but did learn that these don’t seem to hold together week after being made up then frozen again. If you find a way to make them stick, post-freezer, please let me know! Otherwise, you’ve been warned 😉

These meatballs can be used several ways, but regardless they’re tasty! You can make mini meatballs and they are a great appetizer served on a toothpick. Or you can make them full size and they can be served over a variety of starches or grains. 

I paired this with the Gala Apple & Kale Salad and it was a hit! You can also pair it with:
Kale & Roasted Golden Beet Salad
Quinoa & Arugula Salad
Gourmet Asparagus

Hope you enjoy this delicious meal as much as we do!

Love,
