Bake: Apple Crisp

There is something so tasty and sweet about baked apples. 

Add in cinnamon, honey, walnuts, and you get a deliiicious dessert, paleo/gluten-free to boot!

I promised you this recipe in March.  Long overdue.  Here it is!  Use it wisely.  Do your best to not eat the whole thing by yourself.  Share with friends.  Use it to make friends. 

Although I just shared my love of frozen yogurt... as desserts (or breakfasts...) go, baked apples are a recent favorite.

Who needs chocolate?

Just kidding.  I (sometimes) still need chocolate.
