“If you don’t count the salt (and you shouldn’t), you might wonder how the heck anyone can make a delicious apple crisp with just three ingredients. The answer is by starting with granola, which comes equipped with oats, nuts, sugar, and dried fruit. (Is this cheating? Don’t tell anyone.)”
- 1/3 cup apricot preserves or sweetened fruit spread
- 4 large Golden Delicious apples (about 2 pounds)
- Table salt
- 2 cups sweetened granola
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a shallow 6-cup baking dish. Melt the preserves in the microwave or in a small saucepan on the stove.
Peel and thinly slice the apples then toss them with the preserves and a pinch of salt in the greased baking dish, spreading them out to make an even layer. Sprinkle the granola evenly over the apples; cover the dish loosely with a sheet of greased aluminum foil and bake 30 minutes.
Remove the aluminum foil and bake about 15 minutes longer until the apples are tender. Serve warm or cold.
