One of FreezerBagCooking Facebook page readers, Tim, asked about an easy apple crisp of sorts – here you all go! This one is easy to pack and easy to make.
Apple Crisp In A Bag
At home mix up:
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
- 2 Tbsp butter or margarine (Use Earth Balance for non-hydrogenated)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
Spread on a cookie sheet and bake at 350* until crisp, watch and check every couple minutes to be sure you don’t burn it. Cool and pack in a snack bag.
In a quart freezer bag:
- 1/4 lb. dried chopped apples (or use 2 cups dried chopped cherries for cherry crisp)
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of nutmeg
Add 1 1/2 cups near boiling water to the apples. Seal well and put in a cozy for 15 minutes. Divide into personal mugs and sprinkle some of the crisp topping over each bowl.
Serves 2 to 4, depending on how much sweets are liked
You can use commercial granola instead for the topping; take 1 cup with you in a snack bag.
Thank you to RebeccaD for the recipe.
