I realized the other day that I haven’t shared one appetizer recipe for this entire year. Um, I guess I got a little carried away with the chocolate and cookies, as per usual.

This Small Serving Apple Crisp is the perfect guiltless indulgence for when you don't need an entire pan of apple crisp in the kitchen! It's gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan.I never really know what to say when people ask me what my favorite dessert is, or what my favorite thing I’ve ever made is. I have over 250 recipes on Bakerita.com, and that’s not included all the desserts I made pre-Bakerita or the recipes that never made it up for whatever reason. There’s so many choices, and my answer changes way too frequently.

This Apple Berry Crisp is the perfect fall treat. Baked up in a skillet, the tender apples and sweet berries pair perfectly with the buttery oatmeal pecan crisp topping. | via Bakerita.comI get asked a lot what my favorite dessert is, and while I always hesitate and think about it for a while, the answer always ends up the same: anything with apples in it. I’m a huge sucker for apple desserts, and of all the apple desserts, ones that are piled high with crisp or crumble topping top the list. Add in pecans or oats, and I’m in heaven. Oooh, and with caramel sauce – like my caramel apple crisp? Always a winner.

So…while I definitely can’t make apple crisp frequently for fear of devouring it ALL to myself, it’s the one thing I MUST make every fall. A while back, my housemate Olivia was talking about a crisp her mom made, Bumbleberry Crisp, which was apples mixed all up with a bunch of berries. It sounded amazing, and served as the inspiration for this recipe. [Read more…]
