Hello August!!! Hello Monday!!! Hello Secret Recipe Club reveal day!!!! This month I was partnered with the incredible Andrea of Adventures in all things Food – which has got to be one of the best blog names EVER. Andrea’s blog has a bit of everything, from vegetarian goodies to desserts to crafts fit for the entire family. I’ve been a sweet kick lately so I went straight to her dessert section, trying to avoid eye contact with her peanut butter icing because OMGoodness chocolate donuts with PEANUT BUTTER – nom nom nom. However, in the end I was won over by her fall ready Apple Crisp. I’m normally a summer girl but I’m ready for cooler temperatures! Didn’t even make any changes to the recipe – it’s perfect already! While Andrea didn’t specify what type of apple, I went with Pink Ladies since they offer a great combination of sweet and tart. Plus they hold up well when it comes to baking.
I also went with old fashioned oats, tho quick oats would also work well. I just prefer a crisper crisp! For a vegan option, switch out the butter for earth balance or a similar spread – easy peasy. Since there are 5 Mondays in August – there will be another secret recipe club post at the end of the month so hope to see everyone then (if not sooner).
