I’ve always loved fruit desserts the best (even more than chocolate).  This recipe can be whipped up quickly when the sweet tooth hits, you just have to wait out the baking.  It’s a good way to get your apple a day and even is delicious cold the next day.  If you think you don’t eat enough fruit, try this!


  • fruitcrisp2-1/2 cups pears
  • 2-1/2 cups apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar or agave
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/3 cup safflower oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup macadamia nuts (or other nuts)

Preheat the oven to 375º.  Add all of the filling ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Oil a baking pan and put the fruit mix into the pan.

In the same mixing bowl add the topping ingredients and mix well. Pour on top of the fruit in the baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes. Make sure the top is golden brown. This dessert is delicious served with non-dairy ice cream.
