When it comes to dessert you don’t have to choose between unhealthy and the horrible tasting healthy alternative. I want you to know you can have your dessert and enjoy it too!

Recreating desserts to make them healthier and better for you is one of my favorite things to do. I’m on a mission to show that you can have the best of both worlds → healthy desserts that taste amazing. And this Gluten Free Berry Crisp passes the test.

The easiest way to making desserts healthier is by swapping out ingredients. A simple example is to swap out white sugar and unhealthy oils. Begin using coconut sugar or pure maple syrup as a sweetener. And use coconut oil or olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Making small changes like these can go a long way in helping you reach your goals.

This is one of the most versatile recipes you’ll come across. Only have blueberries on hand? Or maybe you like almonds better? Feel free to add whatever you like to make it your own.

But don’t let your imagination stop there. The crisp topping is perfect for an apple crisp too!
