Healthy Apple and Red Berries Crisp


Crumble, any type of crumble… One of my favorite desserts of all times. I could easily eat it for breakfast, snack and dessert. My mother used to do it with pear and apple and call it “formigos”. It was (and still is) absolutely delicious, but I decided to add it my own twist by making it healthy, vegan and a little bit sharper. So today I bring you this apple and red berries crisp with walnuts.  

This recipe is so healthy you can perfectly have it as a snack, dessert and breakfast. It has the sweetness of the apples, the crispiness of the crumble and the tartness of the berries. You can compliment it with some vanilla vegan ice cream (just make sure you go for a wholesome homemade ice cream or a healthy store-bought version) or with some greek plant-based yogurt to pack your snack or breakfast with some protein. 

To make this healthy apple crisp you will need – apples (I used honey crisp), frozen red berries, any type of flour (I used spelt, but buckwheat, oat flour or rye will work too), rolled oats, coconut oil, chopped walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon.
