The last day of our vacation. As I’m sitting here typing this scheduled post, I’m sure I’ll be quite anxious to get back to blogging after a lovely week away with my family. We need some family time to reconnect after a very hectic summer.
The last and one of my favorite foodies, Carrie, is sharing quite a beautiful recipe with you all today. Apple and blueberries… plus add chocolate in there – YES, you had me at dessert! Carrie is one of those awesome women who always makes me smile. She sends random happy emails that always put a smile on my face, regardless of the day I’m having. She is beyond knowledgeable and oh-so-creative with food. I love her!!! Check out this fabulous recipe along with her blog and FB page. Thanks Carrie!!! oxoxoxo
Did you ever just want something sweet but you’re trying to be “good” so you don’t buy anything to keep in the house? Well, last week I had one of those nights. I found some apples in the refrigerator that I hadn’t eaten yet and a pint of blueberries and decided to make this quick and easy crisp. I made this the night I had the grilled chicken so my total WW Point intake for dinner was only 10pts. leaving me with quite a few extra points to spare for the day (so I didn’t feel so bad once I realized this was 9pts per serving) but man oh man was it good! I probably could have left out the chocolate chips but it did add that extra sweetness I was craving. And since it is National Frozen Food Day today, you could also use frozen blueberries if you’d like too.
Granny Smith Apple & Blueberry Crisp with White Chocolate Chips
3 Granny Smith Apples, cored, peeled and sliced
1 pt. Fresh Blueberries (though you could also use frozen)
1/4 c. Honey
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix well, then add to a 9×9 oven safe baking dish.
1/2 c. Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 c. All-Purpose Flour (I’m sure Gluten Free or Whole Wheat Flour would work as well)
1/2 c. Light Brown Sugar
1/2 c. White Chocolate Chips
2 tbsp. Butter, melted
Mix together in a small bowl until it is crumbly. Top the apple and blueberry mixture then bake at 425 degrees for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Serves 6.
