Procedure: oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium-size baking dish, mix together sliced fruit, applesauce, lemon juice, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Top with 2 cups of “Very Berry Snack Mix” or fat free granola.

Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly..


Culinary Tip: Take a peek in your oven half way through the baking process to make sure
the granola is not turning too brown around the edges. If it is, just tent the dish with a sheet
of aluminum foil.

Quick Tip: If you don’t have the Very Berry Snack Mix to crumble on top, purchase a fatfree granola.

Variations: Combine your favorite fruits and spices. Instead of a granola topping, combine 1 ½ cups of rolled oats with a ¼ cup of whole-wheat flour, ¼ cup of canola or olive oil and ¼ cup of maple syrup. Place this mixture (which is lower in fat and calories) on top of your fruit and bake.

More Heart-Healthy Foods: Add a ¼ cup of blueberries (fresh or frozen) to the peach crisp, or add ¼ cup of fresh or frozen cranberries to the apple and pear crisps.

Storage Tip: Store tightly covered in your refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Think Ahead: Keep granola available in your pantry or freezer.
