Taste and Create: Apple Crisp

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

March is my first month participating in Taste and Create, all about community, sharing, tasting and blogging. You get assigned a blog and you each make a recipe. Easy and fun. I love browsing new blogs, I find so many things I want to make.

My assigned blog this month was Culinary Adventures with Camilla, I saw her home page and realized I needed to make this simple Apple Pie/Crisp. I usually have apples, sugar, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, butter and flour in the house. I was able to grab all the ingredients, throw them in a baker and had an amazing smelling house that evening.

It was also an excuse to break out the orange bakeware. Every time I look at it I smile

  Another key ingredient in this was using nectresse, it’s an all natural sweetener made from monk fruit. (They sent me this sample). While it is still a sweetener it at least has an ingredient list that I can recognize and pronounce.

Still steaming, fresh out of the oven apple crisp. It doesn’t get much better than that!
