Crispy-Topped Fruit

I found this recipe on the back of a cereal box and tried it. It was really yummy and very easy. It was kind of like a quick cobbler but not as many calories. Oh, the recipe calls for frozen raspberries. I couldn't find just those, so I used a fruit medley. I told a dietitian about it and she said my version would have had more fiber!

Crispy Topped Fruit

2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 bag (16 oz) frozen unsweetened sliced peaches (do not thaw)
1 bag (12 oz) fozen unsweetened raspberries or fruit medley (strawberries, blueberries & raspberries) (do not thaw)
2 cups apple cinnamon Cherios
1/4 cup walnuts if desired
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Raisins if desired.

  • Heat oven to 375
  • In a large bowl mix flour and brown sugar. Stir in frozen fruit until coated.
  • Spread in an ungreased 8-inch square (2 quart) glass baking dish.
  • Bake uncovered for 20 minutes
  • Meanwhile, place cereal in a resealable food storage plastic bag. Seal and crush slightly with a rolling pin.
  • In a medium bowl, mix cereal, walnuts, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, and melted butter/margarine until crumbly.
  • Sprinkle cereal mixture over hot fruit and press lightly.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes longer until light golden brown and fruit is tender when pierced with a fork.
  • Top with raisins if desired.
Very yummy! Enjoy!
