    Apple-Zucchini Crisp Recipe

    Apple-Zucchini Crisp Recipe

    I love baking crisps, especially during the fall. During the summer I often make peach crisp, but fall autumn means apples. With two apple trees in my front yard, I have plenty of apples come autumn. My mom also gave me a zucchini from her garden this year. I therefore decided to create a new variation of my traditional apple crisp. I have previously made an apple-squash crisp that my family loved. I therefore recently made an equally delicious apple-zucchini crisp with the fresh fruit and vegetable.

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups of diced unpeeled apples
    • 2 cups of diced unpeeled seeded zucchini
    • 1/2 cup of white sugar
    • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • 1 cup of oats
    • 2 tablespoons of butter
    • 1/2 cup of brown sugar

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
    2. Combine the diced apples, diced zucchini, white sugar, and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon in a large bowl.
    3. Stir to thoroughly coat the apples and zucchini in the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
    4. Pour the apple-zucchini mixture into a greased 9×9 baking pan.
    5. Combine the oats, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir to combine.
    6. Spoon the oat mixture over the apple-zucchini mixture.
    7. Cut the butter into smaller pats and place evening on top of the oats.
    8. Bake the apple-zucchini crisp for 35 minutes.
    9. Sprinkle the top of the crisp with the brown sugar.
    10. Bake for another 15 minutes.
    11. Broil for 5 minutes at 550° for a crispy caramelized topping.
    12. Serve warm or chilled.
    13. Refrigerate any uneaten apple-zucchini crisp.
