Apple berry crisp (Snack)

Apple berry crisp (from Canada's food guide)

Apples and blueberries are the stars in this irresistible recipe. Enjoy it warm on its own or with a small dollop of yogurt. Perfect for dessert or as a snack with a glass of water, white milk or unsweetened fortified soy beverage.

Prep time: 15 min

Cook time: 50 min

Servings: 8



  • 4 apples, (about 600 g/ 1 ¼ lb) cored and chopped

  • 500 mL (2 cups) frozen or fresh blueberries

  • 45 mL (3 tbsp) packed brown sugar

  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) all purpose flour

  • 5 mL (1 tsp) vanilla


  • 250 mL (1 cup) large flake oats

  • 125 mL (½ cup) all purpose flour

  • 75 mL (⅓ cup) wheat bran

  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) packed brown sugar

  • 2 mL (½ tsp) ground cinnamon

  • 45 mL (3 tbsp) soft non-hydrogenated margarine, melted


  1. In a large bowl, combine apples, blueberries, sugar, flour and vanilla until coated. Spread into a 20 cm (8 inch) square baking dish; set aside.

  2. Topping: In another bowl, combine oats, flour, wheat bran, sugar and cinnamon. Drizzle with melted margarine and using a fork, toss to coat oat mixture. Sprinkle over top of fruit mixture.

  3. Bake in preheated 180°C (350°F) oven for about 50 minutes or until apples are tender and top is golden. Let cool slightly before serving.


  • This is a fun and delicious recipe for the whole family to make. Little chefs can stir the topping ingredients together. Older kids can slice the apples.

  • Feeling adventurous? Change the fruit to make different crisps. Instead of apple and blueberry, try pears and raspberries.

  • Try using less of the ingredients that are high in added sodium, sugars or saturated fat. Adding salt or sugars directly to your recipe? Remember, a little often goes a long way.

The taste is pretty good, but the baking time is 50 minutes, which could be too long.
