Vegan Apple Crisps
This recipe is the perfect thing to make for breakfast/dessert whenever you are craving something sweet, but don't want to over indulge. Not only is this recipe oil-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and vegan/dairy-free, but it also contains a hidden vegetable thanks to Full Green's Best Morning Ever!
Who is in need of a new delicious healthy breakfast? Don't worry I got you. Breakfast has to be my favorite meal of the day, so I am always looking for healthy ways to switch it up. I love my standard oatmeal, but on the weekends I like to take a little more time to create something delicious, and sit down and really enjoy it.
I am ALWAYS looking for ways to include more healthy foods into my diet, and vegetables during breakfast is something I struggle big time with. I love vegetables, but I always crave something sweet for breakfast, so I find it hard to find to incorporate them into breakfast. However thanks to Full Green's Best Morning Ever this is easier than ever. Their Best Morning Ever is made from 100% fruit and veg with cauliflower, apples and cinnamon to give you the perfect low calorie, high nutrient balance to start your day off right! I also love Full Green products because they are shelf stable, so they are perfect for on the go, or to bring with you when traveling. I love keeping them in my pantry so I have a healthy produce filled breakfast option for when I haven't been to the store in a minute and am craving delicious fruits and vegetables.

This recipe is also great if you are like me, and cooking for 1. I struggle with making too much food a lot, (mostly because I am a recipe developer) and I find it a little annoying meal prepping the food and eating the same thing every day, so whenever I get the chance to make something single serve I am already obsessed. I also love making recipes that are single serve because they help me with portion control (something I have absolutely none of) so I am not eating just because there is some left, or in front of me.
I have been mostly focusing on this recipe as a breakfast meal, but this can also be enjoyed as a dessert. I have always loved apple crisps, but they typically are loaded with sugar and butter, so to be able to create a recipe that is free of both of th0se and still delicious is game changing.
If you are planning to make this for multiple people you can easily double or triple the recipe and you should get a good amount of servings. The single serve makes a pretty large serving, so if this is a dessert for multiple people you should be good adjusting the measurements.
For extra toppings I used vegan yogurt, but you can definitely use a vegan ice cream, or even a homemade nice cream if you are looking to enjoy this as a dessert. I mean you can totally put ice cream on it even if you are making it for breakfast, I am not here to judge lol. I do think that adding vegan yogurt is more filling though, so if you want it to keep you full all day I would recommend that!
