Dear Diary,

Last week, I was sick and it was a bummer. It was the type of “sick,” where you just want to eat carbs and watch bad television… or good television, depending on your view of the Vampire Diaries. Not the kind of sick where you lose 5 pounds and are out for 2 days. It lasted for a week and I’m pretty sure I gained weight.  So, when my body was craving something sweet and crunchy, I had to oblige hoping to help heal myself… and this remake of an apple crisp, was nothing short of a miracle.

Here’s what you need:

-Homemade Granola Recipe; 1 cup sliced almonds, 1 cup sliced coconut, 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, 2 TBSP cinnamon,  5 cups whole grain oats, 1/2 cup agave nectar and 1/2 cup canola oil mix all together…place in the oven at 325 degrees for 40 -45 minutes

-A couple varieties of apples; Granny Smith and Sweet Tangos are the ones I used

-Cinnamon

-Stevia

-Greek Yogurt

I started by making my mother’s signature homemade granola, it makes the house smell divine. I think it’s one of the reasons my husband feel in love with me. The sweet smell of agave nectar, coconut and cinnamon is simply irresistible and he asks for a new batch every weekend. Plus it’s simple and inexpensive to make.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then cut apples into tiny pieces and hallow out 2 apples (I made this recipe for two, but you can hallow out as many apples as you want). Sprinkle a teaspoon of cinnamon and ½ teaspoon of stevia on your apple pieces, place them on a baking sheet and in the oven for 15 minutes. Place your hallowed out apples aside and sprinkle the inside with the mixture as well.

After 15 minutes, or as the apples start to caramelize, place them in the hallowed out apples and put back in the oven for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with crunchy granola and Greek yogurt, serve hot and enjoy a healthy dessert! It’s the perfect fall sweet treat.
