apple pear crisp recipe

This dish is a good dessert or breakfast that is sweet and satisfying, yet chock full of good things for fibroid fighters. We had dinner at friends' yesterday and it worked well as a festive dessert.

Notice that there is no added sugar in this


About 5 cups total chopped up apples and pears, skins on, or whatever fits in your casserole dish
Juice of one lemon
1/2 cup water
generous sprinking of cinnamon
1/2 cup goji berries
1/2 cup dried cherries


1 cup oats
1/3 cup flour (either wheat or something like rice if you are avoiding gluten)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
generous sprinkling of cinnamon

While cutting up the apples and pears, toss them with the lemon juice to keep them from turning brown, then mix in the goji berries and cherries. Grease your casserole with coconut oil. Place filling in the casserole. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon, then pour in the water.

Mix together the oats, flour, and salt. Add the melted coconut oil and mix till blended. Spread the topping over the filling.

Bake for approx. 40 minutes at 375 degrees until tender and your house is filled with the smell. Cover for the first 30 minutes then remove cover for the last ten.

Delicious and no guilt!
