Breakfast Apple Granola Crisp



3 pounds of apples (mix is great!), peeled, cored & cut into medium chunks

2 Tbsp lemon juice

3 Tbsp sugar

2 Tbsp cornstarch

1 tsp cinnamon


1 stick unsalted butter

1/4 C honey

1/2 C flour

2 cups oats

1/2 C sliced almonds

1/2 C shredded coconut



Preheat oven to 400°.  Mix apple chunks with lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and a pinch of salt in a 9×13” baking dish until apples are evenly coated.  In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with the honey.  Stir in the flour, oats, almonds, coconut and another pinch of salt until clumps form.  Sprinkle evenly over the apple mixture and bake in the oven for about 45-55 minutes, or until the apples are softened and bubbly.  Should the granola topping brown before you wish it to, cover the baking dish carefully with foil for all but the last few minutes of baking time, when removing the foil will help the granola re-crisp.  Cool to room temperature and then stash in the fridge to eat with your morning yogurt.


You can also swap out the apples for frozen fruit (6 Cups or so).  It’s a great recipe to help you go through your frozen fruit before the fresh fruit season returns!
