Lets talk about fruity crisps today…. are you a fan? I sure do hope so because they are simple to prepare and the texture/flavor play is irresistible! What’s not to love about heating up your favorite fruit and topping it with crunch. Lucky for all of us because my recipe is light & healthy and is topped with Uncle Sam’s whole grain cereal.

Yup, that’s right…a breakfast crisp that is great for snacks, dessert and also a healthy treat to pack in your lunch box.

I am so pleased to have been chosen as a brand ambassador for Attune Foods. I have been in love with their products for a long time. The partnership is a truly tasty + natural fit.

They love real, healthy foods and so do I…

Attune Foods takes great pride in using the best whole food ingredients in their products. In this recipe I use Uncle Sam’s cereal which is a blend of toasted whole wheat flakes combined with whole flaxseeds.

If you are feeling a bit sassy, top your apple crisp with some freshly whipped cream. Another creamy topping, a bit lighter is thick Greek yogurt. If you are looking for a vegan option then you could use a coconut whipped cream.

All is good with cream, fruit & crunch….

Uncle Sam’s cereal all ready has the perfect crunch, but  I added even more by toasting some in a pan with a dab of virgin coconut oil and pecans…you can never have enough crunch. Or pecans for that matter.

If you would like to prepare this gluten free then you can use one of their Erewhon crispy rice cereals.

I don’t think I could ever own enough white ramekins in all different shapes and sizes. Not only do they look really pretty, but they are also great for portion control.

Slice up some fresh apples while your at it to top everything off perfectly!
