Gluten Free, Nut Free, Vegan Pancakes!

Vegan, Nut Free Apple Crumble

It was my dad’s birthday this weekend and I wanted to make him a fairly healthy dessert without compromising on taste! His favorite is Apple Pie a la mode so I decided that an Apple Crumble would be right up his alley (since a gluten, dairy, soy, egg, nut free pie crust seemed a little daunting. One day I’ll be daring enough to try it out!)
