5-6unpeeled apples- cut into quarterscored, and sliced
1cupcranberries or frozen blueberriesoptional
1/3cuppacked brown sugar
¼cupwhole wheat flour
In a medium bowl, combine sugar, flour, and lemon peel; mix well. Add apples and berries; stir to mix. Spoon into a baking dish that will hold the apples with room to spare for the topping- about a 1 ½ quart dish.
Topping: in a small bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nuts, if using. Add melted butter; stir to combine. Sprinkle topping over filling.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 40-50 minutes or until filling is bubbly and top is brown. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 6 or more.
An easy way to “grate” the lemon peel is to peel thin strips of peel with a vegetable peeler and then chop finely. Adapted from Down Home Healthy Cookin’ published by the National Cancer Institute 1995.
