Apple crisps definitely make my 'top three' for favorite desserts.
The biggest complaint I have with making them, is waiting! The recipe typically requires 30-45 to bake, and, while it is totally worth it, some nights I haven't planned my menu as well and want immediate sweet tooth satisfaction!
Enter the raw version of the fruity confection.
Though it takes a bit of time for the apples to soak, this can be done while you make the delicious, sweet crumble topping.
Topped with a bit of coconut whipped cream, this makes a great dessert in a pinch!
