Hi guys, it’s Adina, and today on CT Cooks we’re gonna be making a healthy-ish apple crisp. Thanksgiving is coming up, and we all know that dessert is the best part, but it usually comes with a lot of unnecessary calories and fat. So I’ve made an apple crisp recipe that’s just as good as the regular version, but just a little bit better for you!

This time, we not only have the recipe, but a fun video to walk you through the whole cooking process as well!
