This is a great breakfast idea or after dinner dessert. It is super simple to make although there are a few steps to get you to the end result.
2 cups chopped almonds
1/2 cups flaked coconut
2T dried chopped cranberries
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder(or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
1 pinch of salt
1/4 cup honey
2T butter or Earth Balance soy-free spread
5-7 Granny Smith apples (or other tart apples)
1/2 cup brown sugar
I find that a slightly cooked apple makes a better apple crisp. So peel and core then chop up your apples. Dump the prepared apples into a large pot with a small bit of water, which will cook off, and your sugar.
Dump your cooked apple mixture into a greased pan. I am using a Pampered Chef stoneware pan so cooking times may vary. A 9x13 glass pan or even a pie dish would work too.
Pour your granola mixture over the top of the apples. Pop the pan into the 350* oven and bake for about 20 min or until the top is golden brown. Remember the apples are already cooked so you only have to get the top baked well.
As you can see from the above picture the top is nicely browned. Carb count for this is depending on how many apples you used. For the 7 apples and brown sugar in this recipe you are going to have about 180g carbs. For the almond crisp layer you will have about 100g carbs. A total of 280g carbs for this recipe divided by how many servings you make. I can serve eight people well and that makes each serving about 35g carbs each.
