Autumn is in the Air! Apple Crisp Recipe




Fall is in the air so, it felt like a great time to make Apple Crisp. I am still using up the Red Delicious Apples from my apple picking trip. I found an old Apple Crisp recipe. I decided to try and make it a little healthier by cutting some sugar by using a sweeter apple and adding in some flax seed. Enjoy!
