Vegan Apple Crisp Coconut Oil (Grain free)

Vegan Apple Crisp Coconut Oil

This vegan apple crisp coconut oil recipe is a  keeper friends! My cousin Saarah, aka my sista from another motha (my aunt actually!) came over during the winter holidays for our annual sleepover.

Seeing as Saarah is my cousin, I’ve known her for her whole life (I used to change her diapers!). She is 10 years younger than me and so we have only recently become close. The deal was sealed when me, my Mom, Saarah and my aunt (Saarah’s Mom) all took a mother daughter trip to Dubai. It was so much fun!

Saarah and I shared a hotel room the for the whole 2 week duration of the vacay and so we basically learned everything about each other. She is super cool! Way cooler than I was at 20. Anywho, Saarah and I learned that we love each not only because we are family! Woohoo! It’s always a pleasure when you genuinely like your family.

I genuinely like Saarah. 🙂 Haha, this post is basically devoted to my love for Saarah! You’re welcome Saarah. 🙂

Anywho, back to the sleepover and the vegan apple crisp. Saarah is currently in her 3rd year of undergrad at McMaster University, in Hamilton, ON. She studies way to hard if you ask me (just joking! 😛 she will do something amazing in life!) and so we barely see each other during the school year. She was off for the winter break and so we had a sleepover. This is how our winter sleepovers go: make fire, make food, eat food, drink tea, make more food, eat more food, drink more tea. 🙂

For dinner we had my Vegan Tempeh Sandwich and had this vegan apple crisp for dessert. It was a hit! Super quick, easy and incredibly satisfying! Some vegan coconut ice cream on top would also be a super delicious addition. 🙂
