Pomegranate Apple Crisp

IMG_20180102_111347_852This is a really different apple crisp recipe but I love it! You get a little crunch and zing from the pomegranate seeds along with the rich sweetness of the apples and crisp topping. I am always pushed into the mood to make apple pie or crisp when I have those extra apples left in the produce drawer that no one wants to bother eating because they aren’t perfect. 😦  So, I tend to make apple recipes with a mix of different types of apples on their last leg and it hasn’t failed me yet! I REALLY hate wasting food, so sometimes I create great recipes because of it….win-win! 🙂

You will need:

  • 8 cups of peeled, cored and sliced apples (any kind you prefer)
  • 1 cup of pomegranate seeds (save a little for garnish)
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup uncooked oats
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 tsp of nutmeg or a cinnamon nutmeg spice blend
  • 1-1/2 sticks salted butter softened (can also use unsalted butter or a mix of)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees…

Grease a 13×9 baking dish then add apples. Drizzle lemon juice over the apples and stir to coat. Add approx 3/4 cup of the pomegranate seeds (put the rest to the side for serving) and stir again.

In a large mixing bowl mix remaining ingredients until well blended (a pastry blender works well if you have one)

Sprinkle mix evenly over apples and bake approx. 1 hour or until crisp is golden and bubbly and apples are tender. IMG_20180101_134546643.jpg

Let cool at least 15 min. Serve warm with ice cream, whipped topping or a topping you prefer and sprinkle with remaining pomegranate seeds. Refrigerate leftovers.IMG_20180101_145723861IMG_20180102_111347_852
