Apple pie is one of my husband’s all time favorite desserts. The only problem is that in order for us to enjoy it on a regular basis it requires A LOT of work! This apple crumble parfait, on the other hand, makes it possible to enjoy the same flavors of an apple pie everyday if we wanted to. It requires only a little effort and no ovens, or rolling pins needed. The other thing that makes it simple to create, is the fact that it uses a pre-made grainless granola from Paleo Passion Foods. I love using their Cinnamon Maple Granola in this recipe because it already adds all the perfect spices needed for this to make your taste buds dance! I also love that their granola contains only a small amount of maple syrup and honey.
Since my husbands stroke in 2008, I’ve been trying to find healthier ways for us to enjoy dessert. I feel like changing our lifestyles has been such a big help to both of us. We have seen some amazing changes just by caring about what we are putting into our bodies and cutting back on the amount of sugar we consume. We haven’t cut out sugar completely, because we believe in enjoying life and balance. But we try to use unrefined sugar in our recipes.
One of the first things that made my husbands face light up in the hospital after his brain surgery and stroke was food, especially dessert! We spent Christmas and New Years in the hospital that year. I remember the first dessert he learned to make with his OT was brownies and the excitement on his face was priceless! This time of year always reminds me to never take life for granted and to enjoy every moment of it! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do, it’s easy to make and oh so delicious!
