Happy Sunday! Since everyone has an extra hour today, try making this gluten free Pumpkin Spice Apple Crisp! I used Trader Joe’s GF Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix for the topping and it came out perfect!




The recipe is entirely gluten free, but can be made dairy free or Vegan  if you don’t use the pancake mix (it contains buttermilk). I suggest doubling the almond flour and the seasonings (cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger) plus adding a dash of ground cloves. Recipe below:
