This apple crisp is great for breakfast or as a snack. You can have just as is or with a splash of non-dairy milk. It´s a great alternative to porridge.

If you love porridge, then you will probably love this recipe. And if you´ve never been a fan of porridge, then you might like this delicious alternative. This recipe is still made with oats and fruits but with texture is much different than that of porridge. Instead of the typical creamy consistency of porridge, this apple crisp is crunchy on the top and soft and juicy on the bottom.



This apple crisp is very healthy and easy to make, so it is the kind of breakfast you could have every single day.

I had mine with a splash of non-dairy milk and it´s a great combo but I also had it just straight from the baking pan, with a spoon, and oh boy…that was so delicious.
