This is one of my all time favorite recipes for fall; it’s quick, easy, and surprisingly healthy! Aside from that, it’s delicious.. Sweet apples combined with tart cranberries, crunchy granola, and autumn spices make for a prefect introduction to fall.
This post wouldn’t be complete without the recipe, of course!
Cranberry Apple Crisp
Serves 8 to 10
Top this comforting autumn crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream of a dollop of yogurt before serving, if you like.
3 to 4 medium to large crisp red apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup apple juice
1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour (I use whole wheat flour)
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 cups granola
Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine apples and cranberries and pour into an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish.
In a small bowl, whisk together apple juice, flour and pumpkin pie spice. Pour over the fruit. Sprinkle granola evenly over the fruit and lightly press down. Bake until hot and bubbly, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm, room temperature or cold.
