breakfast berry apple crisp

Don’t you ever want to have apple crisp for breakfast? Don’t lie. I know I’m not the only one. You’re tempted but the responsible side of you says that you should keep dessert in its place. Well, it’s time to let loose! This recipe is fruit heavy, easy on the butter and sugar, and has the added bonus of flax.

Oh, and I recommend a dollop of yogurt on top instead of ice cream….. but if you break out the ice cream, I won’t tell.

Not only is this recipe a legit breakfast food, it is also super quick to make because it’s done in the microwave!
