In the 1800’s, the amount of refined sugar consumed by the average American was just under 1 1/2 teaspoons a day.  But now, the average American eats over 22 teaspoons of sugar per day.

How are we getting so much sugar?

Refined sugar is hidden in over 70% of packaged foods, and then we add it in abundance to home-baked foods.

Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

This delicious Sugar-Free Apple Crisp offers a sweet solution. Instead of using refined sugar, it’s sweetened with date sugar and pure maple syrup.

What is date sugar?

Date sugar isn’t really a sugar. It’s a very tasty, natural sweetener made from dried dates – a very healthful, nutritious fruit. It adds a luscious, naturally sweet flavor to this healthy apple crisp.

  1. I love apple crisp, and it’s very difficult to find a good gluten-free recipe like this one. I’m going apple shopping tomorrow, so I can give this a try. Do you have a preference for the kind of apples to use?

    I can’t wait to see your post about the cutting boards. I’m thinking they would make perfect Christmas gifts for a couple of people I know.

  2. I am interested in some of your recipes, such as the Sugar-Free Apple Crisp.
