Kick-the-Sugar 10-Minute No-Bake Clean Apple Crisp

Apple crisp is comfort food!  This crisp truly showcases the sweet, warm flavours fall has to offer, but without all the usual guilt. I use an assortment of apples to achieve an array of flavours and textures, and a mixture of oats and nuts to achieve a healthier crisp.
