Nourishing Pumpkin Apple Crisp

What do you do when you get home from apple and pumpkin picking? Pumpkin apple cobbler … duh. This wholesome dessert has no refined sugar, instead it’s packed with nourishing ingredients like coconut oil, oats, apple cider vinegar and honey.

The soft bottom and the crunchy top tastes oh so good served warm with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream… or a scoop of yogurt if you decide to eat it for breakfast (like I did)!
