strawberry apple almond crisp {for one}


It's Saturday! And ya know what that means?

Sleep. 
TWO cups of coffee. {ima rebel.} 
Chillaxing. 
Food Network. 
Peace + quiet. 

BREAKFAST. 
Good breakfasts that are a little fancier than your typical mid-week morning meals. 

WEEEEELL… Maybe not. 


As I've mentioned before, I'm becoming more and more of a morning person. 
And breakfast is definitely my favorite time of the day. 

I love all the possibilities there are for wonderful, healthy, filling breakfasts. 
Oatmeal or eggs are my usual go to breakfasts- something that will keep me full and content until lunchtime. 


In the mornings, I don't really have time to sit over the stovetop flipping pancakes, but THIS. 
I can get behind this.


This breakfast SEEMS like a fancy weekend breakfast, but seriously. 
It's not. It could not be any easier!

All you do is grab a couple ingredients, throw together a simple almond crumble, dump that on a bowl of strawberries and apples, microwave it for a few minutes, and HELLO! 

Breakfast… is seeeeeeerved. 
You can bet your bottom dollar this crisp is going into the breakfast rotation. 



Not only is this crisp delicious and SO easy, BUT it makes a single serving just for YOU to savor, it's gluten-free, AND dairy-free! 
The bomb dot com right there. 

Sit outside on the porch with a cup of coffee, a good book, and your little strawberry almond crisp and your life just got awesome. 
Happy weekend, friends!




strawberry apple almond crisp {single serve, gluten-free, dairy-free}

1/2 large apple, chopped into chunks
3/4 c. strawberries {fresh or frozen; I used frozen and quickly thawed them by running them under some warm water}
4 1/2 tbsp. almond flour
small handful of almonds, roughly chopped
2 tbsp. quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tbsp. dark brown sugar
1/2 tbsp. soymilk
1/2 tbsp. honey

In a small bowl, combine the oats, almond flour, almonds, cinnamon, and dark brown sugar. Add milk and honey and mix with a fork until a crumble forms. Place apples and strawberries in a microwave safe bowl and top with crumble mixture. Microwave on high heat for 2-3 minutes- time will vary for each microwave.

    1. No problem! Just use regular all purpose flour {or gluten free AP flour} in place of the almond flour and leave out the nuts!

  3. Yum so good. I love how the topping is made. I'm going to make a larger version of this in the oven.
