This thirty day period has been wonderful. I took some time off following quitting my job, searched for a new apartment in Chicago, went on a mini trip with Tony, put in time with very good pals I have not found in a even though and have seriously gotten again into running.

Final week I ran all-around 15 miles, which definitely is not that considerably but I have been only operating out each other day (if that), so I felt quite very pleased of myself. The MapMyRun app on my cellphone has me addicted to timing my operates and competing with myself. I have also gotten Tony to operate with me a handful of situations. Even while he’s a specialist athlete, the gentleman hates to operate. I really do not get it.

The other day I came back again from a 4 mile run (in 32 mins!) I resolved that a small evening baking was in buy and preferred to take care of myself to a little something cozy. There were being large Honeycrisp apples in the fridge so initially I was established on making a pie, but then considered about how I didn’t essentially want to make the dough so I opted to go the apple crisp route.

Man I adore a fantastic juicy apple crisp with a crunchy topping. Who would not? Men go nuts above it so if you are seeking to up the baking skills, this is the fantastic recipe to commence with.

This healthier maple pecan apple crisp model isn’t as buttery or sweet as my brown butter apple crisp, but dang it‘s truly really good. You’ll only be using 1/4 cup of maple syrup and a little brown sugar for a sweet, crunchy topping. I love the topping mainly because not only does it consist of oats, but you get nuttiness from the two pecans and whole wheat flour.

If you’re gluten absolutely free, simply sub a gluten free all intent flour for the total wheat and you’re in suggestion-top rated form. Wait around, did I just say that? Ugh.

Oh oh oh! And don’t neglect the bourbon in this article. The bourbon isn’t vital but oh my does it give it a excellent taste. If you really do not have any, you can use whiskey, spiced rum or even vanilla extract as a replacement. Get ridiculous.

I hope you delight in this vintage maple pecan apple crisp dessert. Finest consumed with plenty of ice cream.
