Apple Pear Crisp With Yogurt is a healthy and delicious choice that can be for breakfast or dessert with a scoop of ice cream. A little bit of cardamon gives brightness to this without it being cloyingly sweet.
Recently, I signed up with Imperfect Foods and they sent me something I wasn’t expecting. Mind you, this was not their fault. It was mine because I didn’t carefully go through what was going to be included in my box. Lesson learned, now I carefully go through exactly what is scheduled for delivery. But, you know, sometimes surprises are a good thing. I’m an adventurous cook, and I’m not afraid of food. Bring it on!
There was a bag of Grandy Oats granola in my box, something I normally wouldn’t order since I use Muesli most of the time. Let me tell you, I have become quite addicted to that Grandy Oat Coconola. I brought some to work to snack on and my co-worker tried it and she’s addicted, too. It’s great to snack on right out of the bag or put it on yogurt as she does. But wait! Yes, it’s what makes this Apple Pear Crisp crisp. Most crisps depend on sugar and butter, but this one gets its crisp from granola.
What’s in Apple Pear Crisp?
Is there sugar in this? Yes, there is just enough the sweeten the apples and pears. If your apples or pears are very sweet already, there is no need for the sugar. Plain yogurt is used as a binding, and a pretty tasty binding it is! I used my own homemade yogurt but you can use store-bought plain yogurt, just make sure it has live cultures, has no sweeteners or gelatin.
