I recommend you hop on the fall recipe bandwagon and start experimenting with seasonal ingredients! I'm not a big pumpkin flavored fan, so I am trying out a bunch of new apple recipes that are perfect for this time of year. Since I'm a typical college student and don't grocery shop as often as I should, I threw this recipe together with a few things that I had in my kitchen... and you won't believe how good it tasted (all my roommates can attest to it).
This apple crisp is healthy, yet full of the same sweetness and flavors you would get from regular apple pie or any decadent dessert.
Ingredients: makes 4 servings
1 cup of granola (any type you prefer)
1/4 cup raisins
2 tablespoons honey
Optional: tablespoon of butter, tablespoon of brown sugar
Calories: about 180 calories per serving without optional ingredients
and about 225 calories per serving with butter and brown sugar added
Preheat oven to 425. Thinly slice the two apples and scatter them across a baking sheet. Drizzle the honey over the apples, and add as much cinnamon on top as you would like. Sprinkle the granola and raisins on top. The two optional ingredients are if you want to add some extra sweetness to the dish: just cut the tablespoon of butter into small pieces and distribute evenly over the apples, and then sprinkle the brown sugar on top of everything.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until the apples are soft. This recipe will take very little time to prepare, and it will wow over anyone you make it for, especially if you tell them how healthy it is! Enjoy!
