Pure Market Express makes some of the most delicious gluten-free, dairy-free desserts around. Earlier this year, I wrote a rave review of their gluten-free lemon tart; not surprisingly, their apple crisp is every bit as yummy.

What I love about Pure Market Express is that they avoid trying to emulate wheat-containing products. Their apple crisp doesn't contain any of the standard wheat flour alternatives that you might expect to find in a gluten-free apple crisp (sorghum flour, tapioca flour, corn flour, etc.) Instead, they include gluten-free oat groats, pecans and almonds. Personally, this keeps me from feeling like something is missing, as I'm having a completely different gustatory experience from what I am used to. In other words, I am allowed to enjoy the product for what it is, and not what I think it should be.

While it isn't exactly the 'crispiest' apple crisp I've ever eaten, it is oh-so-flavorful. The apples are particularly tart, and they use some of the highest quality, lowest sugar content organic agave nectar available. It is a perfect balance of tartness and sweetness. Definitely worth a try!
