Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

This is a great dessert for the whole family.  You can add a scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt but make sure you add the additional calories to your daily total.

8 servings

½ cup whole-wheat flour

¾ cup old fashioned oatmeal

½ cup packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ cup chilled unsalted organic butter

6 cups peeled and chopped Granny Smith apples

Preheat the oven to 375°F.  Combine the flour, oatmeal, ¼ cup of the brown sugar, ½ teaspoon of the cinnamon, and the nutmeg in a medium bowl.  Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

In a medium bowl, mix the apples with the remaining brown sugar and the remaining cinnamon and place them in a 13” x 9” baking dish coated with cooking spray.  Top with the oat mixture. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the apples are tender.
