Happy Black Friday! I hope you’re still stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner; that’s the way it should be.
This year, I jumped early to call my dishes for Thanksgiving. Usually I would just make some peanut butter cups and call it a day, but as I’ve become increasingly more interested in cooking and baking over the last year, I couldn’t wait to do more.
Knowing I was going to want to have a healthy option for my overactive sweet tooth, so along with my [unhealthy but completely necessary] peanut butter cups, I offered to make an apple crisp. And the best part? It’s so easy and versatile!
Kind Apple Crisp
6 medium apples [I used 3 braeburn & 3 granny smith]
1 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 cups Oats & Honey Clusters Kind Snacks granola
1 1/2 cups Maple Walnut Clusters Kind Snacks granola
Preheat over to 350°F and grease an 8 x 13″ pan. Peel and thinly slice all apples and toss with lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch. In a separate bowl, combine your 2 flavors of granola.
Lay all of your apples out in your pan and top with granola. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15-20 minutes until the top is golden brown and crisp.
If you want to make this ahead of time, take the crisp out of the oven after the first 3o minutes, let cool, and refrigerate. When ready to serve, bring the crisp to room temperature, then place in the 350° oven, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes until warmed through and golden brown on top.
Top with vanilla bean ice cream and enjoy!
Craving an apple crisp but don’t have a group to feed?
This is a great recipe to make for two! Make this recipe with 1 apple, peeled and sliced, adjust spice quantities to your liking, and top with about 1/4 cup granola. I recommend baking in 2 separate ramekins for single servings. This will keep the baking time the same, but adjust baking time according to the size of your dish.
