Autumn Fruit & Pecan Crisp

Posted by: admin in: ● November 14, 2010

Nothing says fall like a fresh apple crisp and that is what inspired me to create this healthier version with other seasonal fall fruits. You can play around with the ratio and type of fruit to keep things interesting but this worked really nicely. Bon appetit!

For the filling:

3-4 gala apples, diced into 1/2″ pieces

1 bartlett pear, diced into 1/2″ pieces

8 medium sized figs, quartered

1/4 cup agave syrup

1 tbsp. lemon juice

3 tbsp. whole wheat flour

1/4 cup chopped pecans

For the topping:

1/2 cup quick cooking oats

1/4 cup flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup chopped pecans

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

6 tbsp. cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces

Preheat oven to 350. Combine ingredients for filling and scoop into 9″x9″ buttered baking dish. Next combine all the ingredients for the topping and pour over fruit, spreading evenly. The butter pieces will be lumpy, this is OK. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake uncovered for last 15 minutes until top is golden brown.

This crisp is great on its own but adding a dollop of fresh homemade organic whipped cream or ice cream can make the treat extra special!

I need a better camera… this doesn’t do it justice!
