I was so excited to be asked to participate as the Delish Dish guest blogger! After having trouble narrowing down what I wanted to cook (too many good things to choose from), I decided on something sweet, but not too decadent. Something that goes well with all the holiday goodies we might be gobbling up these days.
I chose the Apple Mango Crisp, with a few minor tweaks. I substituted the wheat germ with milled flax-seed and used coconut sugar instead of brown sugar. By doing this, the recipe is still perfect for dessert with some whip cream or a scoop of ice cream.
I also decided to top the crisp with coconut flavored yogurt, which made this recipe the perfect not-too-sweet breakfast option. I have to say, not only was this a fun project, but it also resulted in a great weekend breakfast with enough left-overs to serve for dessert! And any apple based recipe that doesn’t require peeling is a winner in my books. Thanks for having me Delish Dish!
