Apple Crumble Recipe

Traditional meals and family time during the holidays are the best. However, I’m always left feeling super bloated from desserts like the generic apple or pumpkin pie. I wanted to make a classic dessert that tasted as delicious but actually made me feel good afterwards. This recipe for Apple Crumble is perfect for the fall/winter holidays or simply when you are craving comfort food. It is gluten-free, sugar-free and can be made dairy-free. It was such a hit this year that I just had to share with you all. Enjoy!
