Apple Crisp

Surprise Sunday Treat

I thought i left Trader Joes with a bag of organic fuji apples after looking at the shelf tag & price. I get home and, lo and behold, I left with a $5 bag of washington, non organic apples. I was highly disappointed because I really like fuji's and apples contain the highest levels of pesticides so I try to always get organic. I hated to have to drive all the way back there ( its a fair distance) for $5. The odd thing is that the price tag on the little bag closer SAYS "or.fuji apples... "

Anyhow, I decided to scrub them very well and use them in ...

An Apple Crisp
1 BLOG 084
I had some with a little Stoneyfield Oikos Blueberry Nonfat Greek Yogurt...


I used a recipe semi-homemade kinda style because I had all the ingredients:
1 box Reduced Sugar Yellow Cake Mix (pillsbury)
1/4 cup smart balance light with olive oil brand Butter , melted( what's with the lengthy titles?!)
2/3 cup quick rolled oats
1T cinnamon
7 small peeled cored sliced apples

Mix all together, Baked at 350* for 40 minutes.

I think next time I will butter the pan, and added 1/2 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt, and make it in a smaller dish than a 13 x 9.
Nonetheless, it was deliciousness.

I hope everyone rested up , studied up, and enjoyed their weekends! Again, finals are almost over! Christmas is practically here! It's the most wonderful time... of THE YEAR!!!!!
