Apple Pear Oatmeal Crisp

Ingredients

2 apples, sliced
3 firm pears, sliced
1 tablespoon raw sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup water

Topping

1 cup oats
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons of Earth Balance, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Place fruit slices in the bottom of a greased nine-inch dish. Drizzle with lemon juice.
  3. Sprinkle one tablespoon of sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and water on the fruit.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add melted Earth Balance and mix until crumbly.
  5. Spread the crumb mixture evenly on top of the fruit.
  6. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, so the top is lightly brown and the fruit is bubbly.
