Apple Crumble

Gluten-free and vegan apple crumble

This apple crumble is a tasty way to get in your serving of apples and dates for the day to support your adrenals (which is KEY). The warm cinnamon apples have a caramel-like glaze and pair perfectly with the crunchy oats. This is super healthy as it is vegan, gluten-free, and there are no added sugars.
