Apple Blackberry Crisp

I am still in Jamaica (today is our last day!), so my good friend Crissy from Begin Within Nutrition has stopped by to share a delicious treat!! Crissy and I were “real life” :) friends before our blogs, when we both lived in Jacksonville Florida.  She is truly one of my favorite people.  I wish we lived closer! Her website is full of delicious and healthy recipes to make you feel and look your best.  She is a registered dietitian, so she knows what she is talking about! Please check out her social media links in the author box below her post, and be sure to check out her gorgeous blog! Thanks so much Crissy!
