This is extremely tasty and thanks to ground flaxseed, it's healthy and may contribute to the health of your heart. Found this recipe on the internet (What's Cooking).
- 6 cups fresh sliced apples (such a Braeburn) or 6 cups pears
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 teaspoons white sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1⁄3 cup ground flax seed
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄3 cup quick-cooking oats
- Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
- Combine apples and lemon juice in a baking dish, coated with nonstick spray, and toss gently to coat.
- Combine sugar, cornstarch and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Stir with a whisk to blend.
- Add cornstarch mixture to apple mixture and toss well to coat.
- Combine flax, remaining cinnamon, brown sugar, and oats in a separate bowl. Sprinkle evenly over apple mixture.
- Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until apples are tender and topping golden brown.
This was unexpectedly very good, even without any butter, lol. I made it today for my breakfast because no one else in my house likes crisps, it will last me a couple of days (oh well more for me :) ). I think it's best eaten warm. Thank you for sharing Galley!
What a yummy apple crisp with very little fat! I must admit I was tempted to add a little butter since I've never made a crisp without it.... but decided against it. The flax seed made it a little bit dry and flaky on top, but I still really enjoyed this low-fat dessert. I used my oval 1.75qt baking dish and it seemed to be a good choice. I also added a little coconut and chopped pecans into the topping. Highly recommended!
