Breakfast Apple Crisp

Breakfast Apple Crisp #cleaneating #delicious

As you can see...all my food images come from my Android.  There are bloggers who take lovely photos with digital cameras that cost what most people pay in rent and well, I do this pretty quickly for free.  Plus Instagram filters are fun.

Where did breakfast apple crisp come from?  I had half bags of granola and 10 apples.  That's where it came from.  I wish I had a lovely anecdote about Saturday mornings spent with this and a cuppa tea with my English Nana but it came from too much fruit and not enough space in the cupboard for another cereal.

Plus, Nana was known for fruited green jello, trifle, and these orange cookies I have yet to recreate.  Today also would have been her 96th birthday so this post goes out to her.

Breakfast Apple Crisp:
2 lbs. of apples chopped (about 3-4 large or 5 small)
1.5 cups of granola
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil (melt after measuring out)
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl combine ingredients and stir until coated.  Spray a baking dish (9 x 11 will work if you don't have a massive cast iron skillet) with non-stick spray and topple crisp mixture into dish.  Bake for 60-70 minutes, stirring after 30 minutes.

The obscene amount of cinnamon is necessary.  Your house will smell great.
