Apple Granola Crisp
This week’s recipe is coming to you from smittenkitchen.com and is absolutely delicious. Who doesn’t love a good apple crisp? It makes for a great breakfast or snack, and maybe even lunch or dinner if these final weeks of class have you crammed for time.
The two most important ingredients of this recipe, apples and granola, come in our boxes this week. The other ingredients are pretty easy to come by but if you can’t get your hands on any of the ingredients don’t worry about it, it will still be delicious!
3 pounds of whatever apples, or mix of apples, you like to bake with, peeled, cored and cut into medium chunks
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups Doris’ Homemade Granola courtesy of Greens to Grounds
Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix apple chunks with lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and pinch of salt in a 9×13-inch baking dish until apples are evenly coated. Bake apple mixture in the oven for 20 minutes, remove, and then sprinkle granola evenly over the apple mixture and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the apples are softened and bubbly. Should the granola brown before you wish it to, cover the baking dish carefully with foil for all but the last few minutes of baking time, when removing the foil will help the granola re-crisp. Cool to room temperature and then stash in the fridge to eat with your morning yogurt.
