Maple Walnut Apple Crisp

Does Fall have you craving a warm sweet treat? This Maple Walnut Apple Crisp is sure to satisfy!

Traditional apple crisps are made with white flour and sugar, making it not a so PCOS friendly dessert. The addition of cinnamon, walnuts and almond flour add antioxidants, healthy fats, fiber, and protein. Walnuts are also high in minerals like magnesium, zinc, potassium, calcium, and iron which promote a healthy metabolism.
