Sunday May 15, 2016: Stove Top Blueberry Crisp
May 16th, 2016 by Katekoster

Tonight we didn’t have time to cook a full meal — too much soccer, prep for our piano recital and homework but we wanted to help out and make something tasty and quick for dessert.  So we experimented with making a stove top blueberry crisp.  We love blueberry crisp and apple crisp and pretty much any kind of crisp but it takes a lot of prep and cooking time.  But earlier this week we had made a stove top granola that was very simple so we wondered if we could use that granola as the “crisp” topping.

The granola recipe is very simple. Melt 1 tablespoon butter with 2 tablespoons honey and 2 tablespoons brown sugar about 2 minutes until bubbling…then stir in 2 cups oats. (You can also add chopped walnuts if you like.)  Stir until oats are coated. Let cool slightly.  (If you were making granola, you could add raisins)


For the filling we also decided to cook the fruit (this time blueberries, canned apple sauce and pears) on the stove top with a little butter and brown sugar.  The results were pretty good but next time we want to use all fresh fruit. The fruit filling was a little runny so we stirred in about 1/2 cup of the oat mix.



Then we plated…we put the berry mix in the bottom of four ramekins and then we added the oat mix. We garnished with a single blueberry. Whipped cream would have been good but alas we had none.
