Healthy Maple Cinnamon Pecan Apple Crumble

K any of you out there who say you aren’t dessert people are straight up lying cuz dessert is life. There’s nothing I love more than a healthified dessert, which is why I’ve been making this Healthy Maple Cinnamon Pecan Apple Crumble (plus a lil scoop of coconut nice cream for funsies) on repeat instead of crushing apple pies this holiday season.

SO FREAKIN EASY AND DELICIOUS PEOPLE!!! Not to mention it’s dairy, gluten, and refined-sugar free!!! AND it’s basically just like eating some apple and oatmeal. So break out your apples and get to chopping because you’re about to be hooked on this holiday season staple. Enjoy!!!

Oooooooh baby I love your waayyyyy.

And that’s all I got. But I’m not kidding, these oats? OOOH BABY do I love their way! I just cannot get enough. Ever.

Are you a fellow oat lover too? (I’m assuming yes by the fact that you’re reading this post about oats). Oh goodie, we’re all on the same page here (literally). What could be better than a sweet, creamy, warm bowl of ooey-gooey oats to fill you up and keep you going on your longest of days? Okay, so maybe like a puppy BUT BASICALLY NOTHING. You can’t beat a puppy, like come on people.

And these oats come together in literally a snap of the fingers! Do you have 5 minutes? Then you’ve got time to make these. We all know oats are a fantastic way to start the day because they are high in carbs, iron, fiber, and protein (and more) and they are a slow burning energy source so that energy lasts all day and you feel fuller longer BUUUUTTTT pair those oats with coconut and they turn into….

MEGA OATS!!!!!

Boom. On top of all the fantastic benefits of oats on their own, the addition of coconut to the party adds powerful amino acids and protein, more iron and fiber, and a bunch of folate and potassium! Your digestive system is going to be flying high after this, I promise you.

So what are you waiting for?! You’re five minutes away from total body euphoria!! Get going!!!!
