Healthy, Homey Apple Crumble

Craving something sweet, but also healthy? With this Apple Crumble you get the best of both worlds! This simple dessert is sweetened with a touch of maple syrup, but gets most of its sweetness from the apples themselves. Almond flour and walnuts provide a protein boost and cinnamon will help to balance blood sugar so you can enjoy this without the sugar crash afterwards!
