Fall Challenge #1- Apple Crisp

Well, I personally think I've gotten off to a good start on my Fall Cooking Challenge. My husband totally agrees, which is also important. For the first dish, I made Skinny Taste's Cinnamon Apple Crisp

 This was the perfect fall dessert and when paired with some Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream--- yum! The hardest part is peeling all those darn apples, but it is worth it.

Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes

  • 5 medium apples, peeled and diced
  • 1.5 oz raisins (small box)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar (not packed)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (half stick) butter, melted
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine apples, raisins, cinnamon, agave nectar 
and lemon juice in large bowl. Sprinkle with cornstarch. Toss until fruit is coated. Place fruit in an ungreased baking dish.

Mix remaining ingredients. Sprinkle over fruit. Bake about 40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and fruit is tender.

Serve with a scoop of low fat ice cream or fat free frozen yogurt. Enjoy!!

  1. looks soooooo yummy!! thanks for posting. you've inspired men to do some baking next weekend.

  2. This looks awessome! I LOVE apple crisp it's one of my favorite fall treats! You can also totally leave the skin on the apples if you don't have an aversion to it...I always leave the skin on for my apple crisp and it ups the fiber of the meal, which might make it like one point less per serving..but I'm only speculating!

    good job!
