Apple Granola Crisp
2 large apples (I use granny smith), peeled and remove seeds - cut
1 cup frozen blueberries
3/4 cup mixed fruit muesli or granola
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon butter, melted
vanilla yogurt to serve (optional)
Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Lay apple
wedges on baking tray and top with blueberries. Sprinkle muesli
(granola) over, then drizzle with maple syrup and butter. Bake for 15
minutes, or until tops are golden and fruit tender. Serve apple warm
with vanilla yogurt for breakfast. (Or vanilla ice cream for desert.)
Makes 2 servings
1 cup sugar
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or whole wheat all purpose flour)
3/4 cup almond meal
2 tablespoons flax meal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.
Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and
fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk,
cinnamon, and nutmeg.
In another bowl, mix together the flour, almond meal, flax meal,
baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until
combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.
Stir in nuts.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes,
until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside
to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto
rack and cool completely before slicing.
