Simple, Gluten-Free, Vegan Apple Crisp

 Autumn is all about apples. Whether it is apple picking, apple cider or apple pie I am a major fan. Don’t even get me started about the apple cider doughnuts from Bad Seed Cider co. each week at the Fort Green Green market. We have gone nearly every week for the doughnuts alone. We try to balance our indulgences by picking up some actual locally grown apples. But then cave and turn them into dessert.  So I have gone and done my best to clean up the traditional apple crisp with this gluten-free, vegan and nearly paleo rendition. Happy fall everyone!
