Pomegranate Apple Crisp

  • Yield 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

Pomegranate Apple Filling:
1/4 cup pomegranate arils
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
5 Granny Smith or Fuji apples, halved, cored and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Oat Topping:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons soft unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups rolled organic oats

Instructions

  1. To prepare filling:  Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine 1/2 cup sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Stir in apples and lemon juice, tossing until apples are evenly coated.
  3. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken.  Pour into a lightly greased 8 x 8-inch baking dish or pie tin.  Sprinkle arils on top.
  4. To prepare the topping:  In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  5. In another medium mixing bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla extract.  Add in 1/4 cup water and whisk well, until fluffy and the color lightens.
  6. Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture until no flour is visible, then stir in oats until just incorporated.
  7. Using a large spoon, drop the oat crumble mix onto the apple mixture.
  8. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
