Breakfast in Bed Threads: Vegan, Gluten-Free Apple Crisp with Vanilla Bean Nice-Cream 

Every Sunday this winter, we’ll be sharing a delectable breakfast recipe that will give you (yet another) reason to stay indoors this season. Add these dishes to your repertoire and enjoy as they make their way from occasional treats to regulars on your high rotation. Today’s recipe is vegan and gluten-free, but make no mistake: this apple crisp is an utter indulgence.

Guests coming over? 'Meal-prepping'? Like the idea of seconds... and thirds? Then step right this way for a healthy (ish) breakfast that's food intolerance friendly (of course, depending what the bill is) and is still a just-sweet-enough treat.
