Nothing says autumn like a cinnamon scented fruit crisp. Enjoy the warm and comforting flavors of Apple or Pear Crisp. This crisp, made with a teff flour topping, is naturally gluten-free and filled with sweet, spiced apples or pears. Teff provides essential amino acids and 7 grams of protein per serving, making this crisp both nutritious and delicious. The nutty flavor of teff pairs perfectly with the fruit, creating a delightful dessert for any time of year. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream while still warm to make it extra special.
