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.
