Super Easy Granola Apple Crisp with Peach, Nectarine, or Pear Option


This insanely simple granola apple crisp recipe was originally shared with us by Debra’s Natural Gourmet. They made it with their Stark Sisters granola, a maple-sweetened, dairy-free brand that was produced for a quarter century. It’s no longer in production, but you can bake this with your favorite granola. Use a dairy-free store-bought granola or bake your own – it’s easy!

You can bake this easy Basic Granola, keep it maple sweetened with Earthbound Farm’s Famous Maple Granola, or my favorite Spiced Granola from Eat Dairy Free: Your Essential Cookbook.
