This is a pretty versatile recipe. Here are some substitutions you can make!
Nut Free - To make this nut free you can omit pecans. If you'd like to add in some crunch you could sub in sunflower seeds.
Oil - You can sub coconut oil with olive oil or avocado oil. Vegetable oil will also work.
Other fruit - This recipe will work great by adding other berries like blueberries, raspberries and strawberries! (We also have a berry crisp and Peach Crisp recipe!) Dried raisins or craisins would also be a yummy add in!
Apples: We recommend using honeycrisp apples in this recipe. We don't recommend using Granny Smith or other tart apples in this recipe.
Maple Syrup - You can sub maple syrup with honey
Weight Watchers - Save 2 SP per serving by omitting pecans
Oats - You can not substitute steel cut oats for old fashioned oats. It will now work. Quick cook oats will work.
