Adapted from a Cooking Light recipe (October 2007), this yummy comforting dessert is low in fat and high in fiber.
- 4 cups pears, diced with skin on
- 3 cups apples, diced with skin on
- 12 prunes, use fresh if possible and cut into fourths
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- cooking spray (I use butter-flavor)
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 dash salt
- 5 tablespoons light butter, chilled and cut into small cubes
- Preheat oven to 375 F.
- To prepare filling, coat an 11x17 baking dish with cooking spray. Toss all the crisp ingredients in a large bowl until well combined- spoon into the baking dish and pack it down.
- To prepare topping, mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl, then add in butter cutting in with a pastry cutter, fork, or just mix it in with the tips of your fingers until the whole mixture becomes crumbly but will stick together if you press it between your fingers.
- Sprinkle the topping over the fruit in the baking dish. Spray the topping lightly with cooking spray and back for 50 minutes or until the topping is browned.
- Let it cool at least 30 minutes, then serve. It is great accompanied by fatfree vanilla yogurt, fatfree whipped topping or light ice cream.
