There’s nothing like baked fruit desserts in summer. With seasonal, fresh, luscious ingredients, this gluten free Apple Blackberry Crisp is the perfect healthy and scrumptious, warm weather delight. When finished off with a high protein almond flour topping, baked treats such as this are superfood in the form of dessert. Now what’s better than that?
Our summer started last Thursday when the boys finished school, and we are having an excellent time thus far. Our house has been the setting for lots of sleep overs, lunches, snacks and water balloon fights for the boys and all of their friends.
Today we’ve been deeply involved in preparing for the Mapleton Hill Rummage Sale which takes place this weekend. The boys plan to have an organic lemonade stand where they will sell high protein brownies, cookies and other treats, Saturday morning. Who knows, they might even be selling Apple Blackberry Crisp.
