I was in ASDA the other day and they had a whole bag of 12 apples for just £2 – of course I figured I could do something with that.

I was, at first, thinking of just making some of my individual apple crumbles – they are a regular dessert for my household – but then I fancied something a bit different this time.

I had recently been to a restaurant where they served what looked like one of the most incredible, mouth-watering apple crisps, smothered in a caramel sauce, that I have ever seen.

It was also the largest dessert I have ever seen – I’m pretty sure it would have fed us and the next table with a portion to spare! But I just couldn’t get over how good it looked and smelt and I just knew I had to have a go at a healthy, free-from version!

Apple crisp is one of those desserts that lends itself to a healthy version. Simply cooked apples with maple syrup coated in a mixture of oats, ground almonds and pecan nuts - it couldn’t have been healthier, easier or tastier.

This caramel sauce is definitely one of my favourites! Surprisingly simple to make it really gives this dessert a little something extra. Serve warm with a splash of coconut milk or a non-dairy ice cream.
