Easy Fall Recipe: Blueberry Apple Crisp

Easy fall recipe blueberry apple crisp

Hello dear readers! So now that fall is in full swing, fun autumn activities are popping up. We recently attended a fall potluck here in Boston, and had to bring our A-game with a delicious recipe. 

Easy Fall Recipe: Blueberry Apple Crisp

As many of you know, I tend to write more about dining out  and fashion than recipes, but I just had to share this Blueberry Apple Crisp recipe because it was so easy & delicious!

Note: The original recipe can be found here, but we altered it to make it quite a bit more healthy (less butter, flour, sugar, etc.), while keeping the great sweet flavor!

Ingredients Needed for Filling:

5 apples
1 smaller box of blueberries
1/2 cup brown sugar 
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Ingredients Needed for Crust:

1 cup flour
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (not instant)
1/2 cup cold butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

First, let's preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Next, we want to rinse, de-core and chop up 5 fresh fall apples into big slices. You can peel the apples, but it's not necessary.

Next, put the chopped apples, rinsed blueberries, cinnamon and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl and mix until the ingredients are evenly distributed.

Empty contents into a 9 x 13 baking pan. The key here is to make sure everything is still evenly distributed! You don't want all the blueberries in one corner and all the apples in another.

Combine the crust ingredients and beat until the mix is small and crumbly. If you're using a mixer, it will take about 3-5 minutes.

Pour the crust over the fruits, and pop in the oven for 35-45 minutes.

Finished product! The filling should be bubbling and the crust should be browning when it's done.

This dessert was a hit at the potluck! It's such an easy dish, and comes out so amazing. The blueberries give it a great tart flavor as well as a pretty purple color that's perfect for fall.
