Maybe you don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day.
Or perhaps you’re craving a bowl of sweet comfort but don’t want a ton of leftover dessert staring you in the face every time you open the refrigerator.
Or maybe your significant other just isn’t a big fan of dessert.
Whatever your specific situation may be, I think you should make this single-serving apple crisp.
Easy to toss together, quick to bake, and delicious to eat, this crisp is the perfect cure-all for the singleton on Valentine’s Day, the comfort food-seeker, and the “my-husband/wife-doesn’t-eat-dessert-but-I’m-a-sweets-freak” individual alike.
Sweet apple slices are blanketed by a crisp topping of whole wheat pastry flour, rolled oats, unrefined date sugar, cinnamon, and canola oil.
A scoop of vanilla fro yo or ice cream (I used So Delicious Vanilla Bean No Sugar Added Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert) is the perfect finishing touch… especially as it melts into the warm apple crisp.
What will your reason be for making this tasty treat?
