Healthy eating: Cran-apple Crisp

If cranberries are not available, just use apples and decrease the brown sugar for the filling to 1/4 cup.


2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup butter


8 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (about five apples)

1/2 cup shopped cranberries

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. For the topping: Combine the oats, brown sugar, whole wheat flour and cinnamon in a bowl. Dice butter into small cubes and mix with oat mixture until crumbly. For the filling: Toss the apples, cranberries, brown sugar and cornstarch in a bowl until mixed. Spread the apple mixture in a 2 1/2-quart baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with the oat topping. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 15 minutes longer or until bubbly and golden brown. Yields: 8 servings.
