Our recipe of the week comes to us from Anna in Los Angeles, CA. She offers this dish as an alternative dessert for those who love pie but don't have the time to bake it. Who knew one could make dessert in a slow cooker? It can be easily adjusted for those who have food allergies, as well!
2 cups peeled, chopped apples or persimmons
2 cups granola
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup maple syrup or agave
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
How to Make It:
1. Grease the Crock Pot or slow cooker with butter. Put the fruit at the bottom and top with granola. Drizzle the other ingredients on top.
2. Cook on low for five hours. Serve warm. Tastes delicious with ice cream!
Those with dairy allergies can substitute the butter for Earth Balance. Those with gluten allergies can use gluten-free granola.
