Fall Fruit Crisp
Serves: 8 Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Ingredients: 8 apples or pears, peeled and sliced (tart ones are the best.) 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 2/3 cup applesauce (No Added Sugar) 1/2 cup date sugar or other sweetner of choice. (Works fine with Splenda) 1/2 cup oat flour (grind oatmeal in your blender) 2 cups rolled oats 1/4 cup chopped walnuts 1/3 cup raisins 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon allspice 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 cup Goji berries, soaked (optional) or Craisins
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle apples with lemon juice & toss. Mix rest of ingredients together then combine with apples and mix thoroughly. Pour into an 8 X 11 inch (20 x 28 cm)baking dish and bake for 45 minutes.
Note: If using Goji berries be sure to soak them for an hour ahead of time in just enough water to cover. Drain before adding the berries to the mixture. The Goji berries not only add color to this crisp but, more importantly, they add a nutritional antioxidant boost
