Good Mornin' Apple Crisp
Why I Love This Recipe
This warm, satisfying apple crisp makes for a perfect start to a cold winter morning. Tart cranberries balance the natural sweetness of baked apples and the pleasant aroma of cinnamon, maple syrup and toasted muesli imparts a sense of holiday cheer, bringing a good morning smile to all.
Ingredients You'll Need
7 medium sweet apples, such as Fuji, sliced
1/2 cup dried cranberries or organic raisins
2 tablespoons organic evaporated cane juice
2 cups Muesli cereal*
2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour or brown rice flour*
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon
6 tablespoons canola oil
4 tablespoons maple syrup
Preheat oven to 375°F. Lay the apples and cranberries or raisins in lightly oiled 9x 13 baking dish. Sprinkle with cane sugar. Combine remaining ingredients and press over apple mixture. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown and hot and bubbly.
-For a wheat-free version, use 1 cup rolled oats in place of Muesli and use brown rice flour in place of whole wheat pastry flour.
