21 DAY FIX (6)

I so wish the photo of this baked apple crisp looked better because, let me tell you, it tastes AH-MAZING! I’m a huge fan of any type of baked apple dessert and especially love me some baked apple crisp with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream! But, alas, those treats can’t happen everyday. BUT, guess what?? This 21 Day Fix Easy Baked Apple Crisp CAN happen every day! It’s THAT good for you and tastes that good!

It not only tastes amazing right out of the oven, but I liked even more the next day when I was dying for something sweet while I was in between meals but knew that I had to resist digging into junk food. This apple hit the spot, y’all! And it is SO easy to make!! It’s also the perfect post-workout meal for me after an intense Insanity Max30 or Body Beast workout (currently the hybrid plan I am doing that’s giving me CRAZZZZY results, y’all!! Both available for only $8.33/month on Beachbody On Demand!!). It gives me that insulin boost I need so badly after those tough workouts without giving me that refined sugar crash that comes with so many awful processed foods out there.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
