After indulging on vacation, I’m getting back on track with healthy eating. To satisfy my sweet tooth, I created a healthier apple crisp recipe that’s perfect for breakfast or snack. This stovetop apple crisp recipe is easy to make and goes great with Shamrock Farms cottage cheese! Not only is cottage cheese high in protein (a single serving has 13 grams of protein), it’s also low in calories, fat and carbs. Plus, it just tastes good! My family has had the opportunity to visit Shamrock Farms’ real, working dairy farm here in Arizona and were impressed with their commitment to high-quality animal care. If you are in the area, definitely book a tour! My kids still talk about their experience and seek out the Shamrock Farms logo in the foods that we purchase.

3 granny smith apples, diced
2 tbsp brown sugar

Step 1: Core and dice 3 granny smith apples and add to a medium sauce pan. Mix in brown sugar, coconut oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, water and vanilla over medium heat. Cover and mix occasionally for 10 minutes or until apples become soft.
