Fiona’s Apple Crisp is healthier than a traditional apple pie. First, there’s no crust, which cuts down on the fat and carbohydrate content. Since our recipe uses granola as a topping, you’ll get added fiber as well as added crunch and flavor. We use a variety of apples, to add both tartness and sweetness. We made this crisp with Ginger Walnut Granola and paired it with coconut ice cream. Yum!!
- 5 cups sliced apples
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
- 2 Tbls. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups Fiona’s Granola (Ginger Walnut Granola)
- 3 Tbls. melted butter
Combine all ingredients except granola and butter, stirring gently after each addition. Pour into a lightly buttered 9″ x 9″ baking dish. In a small bowl, pour melted butter over granola and stir until granola is well coated. Pour granola onto apple mixture and gently pat down, pressing dry mixture evenly to cover the fruit. Bake at 350° for 25 – 30 minutes. Enjoy warm with cream, milk, or ice cream!
Warm and bubbly, this dessert is a simple yet favorite treat any time of year!
