With the warm cinnamon and sweet apple smells coming from the oven and the cool crisp breeze coming in the open windows, I know fall has arrived. Fall is a favorite season as the temperatures have cooled here in the Midwest and our homeschool days are back in session. Our homeschool days are full of boisterous boys, lots of nature, and a balance of unschooling and textbooks. Follow along here for a peek into our life.
Earlier in the week, we made our way to our grandma’s little apple orchard. The kids love visiting and helping pick apples. Their task is to pick up the apples that have fallen from the tree and sort them into a “keep” and a “toss” pile. They carefully make their way through the fallen apples, throwing the bruised and buggy apples into the tall grass and collecting the good apples in their bags. With our bags full of freshly collected apples and a few in hand for eating right away, we make our way home to start baking with them!
Washing, peeling, coring and slicing…I love taking the time to prepare food from nature! Real food may take a little longer to prepare, but it is so worth it. Making homemade meals and desserts with real food has it’s benefits! Healthy foods will create great wellness. My goal as a mom to 4 little boys is to help them grow to be strong, healthy men. Creating healthy foods that are yummy in the eyes of little kids can be challenging. Throw in making it all allergy-friendly, the challenge is heightened! Harvest Apple Crisp is gluten-free, dairy-free & nut-free with minimal sugar added helping me feel comfortable as a mom giving this to my young ones. I’m so happy to say that the Harvest Apple Crisp is both delicious and a healthy dessert. The kids will gobble it up almost as quickly as I can make it!

Harvest apple crisp is so delicious! It’s warm with cinnamon, rich with flavor and creamy with coconut milk. A sprinkle of topping that crisps up to the perfect crunch while baking. I love baking a big batch of apple crisp when family comes to town, when friends come over to visit, and simply as a creamy and satisfying dessert for my little family. You can even add a scoop of dairy-free ice cream if you wish! I can’t wait for you to give my Harvest Apple Crisp a try!
