Earlier this month I posted pictures and the recipe for my cherry peach crisp – it is delicious of course. I wondered if I could make a “no dessert rule” friendly version that I could have now. Basically the rules I’ve made are for no cookies, cakes, candies, etc… but fruit and ‘healthy’ alternatives are definitely ok. So I mixed some frozen black cherries + peach slices with oats in a ramekin. Then I added a few teaspoons of apple juice, topped with a dash of shredded coconut and a few dabs of butter and baked for about 25minutes at 350. I would have put almonds, but I didn’t have any.
I ended up sprinkling about 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar on top – otherwise it was just too BLAH. I figured since I’d sugar my oatmeal this tiny amount was ok. It was more like hot oatmeal than crisp, but the butter + coconut that had topped it did add a crunch and goodness I suppose. It was good, I didn’t throw it out (and as you can see above I’d eaten 1/2 before I remembered to photograph!) but I would make it the real way if given the option.
