Irish Breakfast Fruit Crisp

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Olha7397

In Ireland this breakfast fruit crisp is served with clotted cream. I serve it with maple syrup or soft yogurt cheese or regular yogurt. You may simplify this recipe by using four apples and 1 cup dried apricots.

Oh my word is this good! We had this with Irish Oatmeal for St. Patty's Day Breakfast. I made exactly as indicated except I ran out of butter (my kids had made cookies for a party). So I used the tiny amount of butter I had on hand, about 1 Tablespoon, then subbed the other 3 T. with grapeseed oil (actually lowered the saturated fat that way). Then I added just a pinch of salt. The fruit comes out soft and plump, and the topping is like warm granola. I will definitely be making this again. I served it with plain yogurt that had been sweetened slightly with honey.
