An Update and an Apple Crisp
Good morning my friends!
There are few things I would rather do with free time in the morning than bake a delicious breakfast that is probably more like dessert, sip coffee, and read my Bible outside with Jesus. I feel blessed when I have these chances, as I did the other day.
As a kid, I hated pies and fruity desserts. Any dessert I saw with berries or apples or fruit of any kind, I steered clear of.
My picky days are gone and I have an appreciation for most every food. As far as fruity desserts go, apple crisp is by far my favourite.
And since it's fruit and oats, it's breakfast, right?😉
I have a sweet tooth, but love how sweet foods are naturally. The only sweetener in this breakfast was dates– although I have made it for dessert and used brown sugar, also of course delicious. I had this, though, with a coffee and a scoop of cookie dough coconut milk ice cream– yes for breakfast– and it was too good not to share my recipe with you.
I didn't measure anything, so these are just guesses for ya! But feel free also just to chuck ingredients in and have fun😊

I also wanted to let y'all know that some updates are coming to the blog. As I pray over it and seek the Lord's will, I feel called to consider topics and posts that I haven't before, and am also just interested in writing about what interests and fills the souls of my readers. I know many of my readers are interested in eating disorder recovery, and that is definitely something I don't want to ignore and feel called to write about authentically.
To give you an idea of what to expect– the usual series will be consistent here:
