Apple Berry Crisp

BlogBanner_Apple-Berry-Crisp

I have been wanting to post this Apple Berry Crisp recipe for about three weeks. The trouble was, every time I baked one of these delicious desserts, we devoured it so quickly that I could never get a picture of it! This recipe gives you the healthy benefits of antioxidants and dietary fiber from apples and berries. Add a side of ice cream of your choosing (CinnamonCoffee, Vanilla), or top it with whipped cream though it tastes just as great without additions.
