Granola apple pear crumble
Oct 24 2020
This is one of the first dessert I ever made. I love it because you can mix in the fruits according to the season or your taste. The crust is also adaptable... I was in a a hurry the other day so I thought I would give it a try with granola to avoid the extra steps of make the crips part.... I turned out so good!!! The beauty is you can use whatever granola you like. I mean who does not like a delicious flavorful and easy dessert?!
Preheat the oven at 400F.
Get your 8 by 12 baking dish ready and grease it. Peel and chop the apples and pears, removing the core (I use a vegetable peeler and it goes really fast). Toss with half of the orange juice (so it will not brown) and the cinnamon as well. If you think that your fruit are quite tart and not sweet enough, you can always add 1 tbsp or 2 of maple syrup.
Mix the remaining of the OJ with the arrowroot powder until dissolved and add to the apple pear mix and transfer to the baking dish.
If your granola has big clusters, tap with a rolling pin on the bag until you get small pieces. Melt the butter (ratio is 1 tbsp of butter per 1 cup of granola) and combine with the granola until everything is coated.
Sprinkle the granola mix on top of the fruits, cover with foil (and baking paper if you don't want foil to touch your food) and bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove the foil and bake it for an additional 10 minutes so the top part gets nice and crispy.
Serve with vanilla ice cream, greek yogurt, creme fraîche, I mean it is hard to go wrong here.... My favorite thing is that I get to have this for breakfast for a couple of days.
