When September 1st hits, America brings out everything apple, pumpkin and squash. I love the fall because a lot of the fruit on my parent's farm is being harvested including peaches, concord grapes, apples and pears.

On good years, there is a surplus of apples and I like to get creative in what to do with them. I love to make big batches of applesauce and freeze it in ziplock bags to enjoy year round. I like to add apples to pancakes and waffles. I make microwaved baked apples with cinnamon, brown sugar and a little butter. So many great options!

This year, I decided to try a healthy protein apple crisp. Last year, I made a healthier protein fruit crisp which became one of my most popular recipes and is still being re-pinned daily! This recipe works well with the apples. You can use any kind that you like. If you want something tart, granny smith are great. If you want sweet, I love honeycrisp or golden delicious which get very soft which I enjoy.

This recipe turned out great and I will continue to make it with all different fruit fillings. It tastes indulgent but is a lot lighter than the original recipe with a boost of protein, whole-wheat flour and oats for fiber as well as less sugar.

  1. What can we use instead of protein powders. I'm all for just plant based foods only. I don't want to have to go to some health food store and get protein powder.
