I mentioned that we had this dessert at the birthday party the other night and I was asked for the recipe. I had pinned it, but not everyone is on Pinterest; so for those friends who aren't, here is the recipe.
Apple Blueberry Crisp:
granny smith apples (I used 4 large for a 9" pie plate)
- blueberries (any berry would be delicious; I used a pint, minus the few small handfuls I snacked on)
- 2 1/4 cups gluten free old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup real maple syrup
- pinch sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Then follow these steps:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel, remove any spots, and slice apples.
Place in bottom of pie plate. Wash & gently dry blueberries, then
carefully place them on top of apples. In a small saucepan on a
low-medium heat, melt the coconut oil. Then add oats, syrup, salt and
cinnamon. Stir to compltely mix these ingredients. Taste, and adjust
salt/syrup ratio according to your own preference. I prefer a slightly
salty mix. Carefully place oats mixture on top of fruit, gently pressing
the oats into the apples and blueberries. I usually have a little extra
of the oat mixture, which I either snack on. Bake for about 50 minutes until oats are
browned and crispy, and apples are just tender.
I can testify that this dessert is delicious!!!! I think you could also substitute other berries for the blueberries.
This is a recipe I know I will be making in the future; right now I'm trying to be good before our vacation.
I think it could also be used for breakfast.
I hope you all have a beautiful day; we are supposed to get up to the 50's again today, so I think I'll get on my bike once more. I love these spring days; makes me want to get outside and enjoy life.
