Apple Crisp

October is finally here.....
I love the Fall but September seemed to be a rough month for me with making good choices so I am hoping that this new month will be better.

I received in the mail yesterday the Eat Clean Diet for Family & Kids book and I am enjoying reading it. This may be just what I needed to get the WHOLE family on board.

I got in a 30 Day Shred workout this morning before I had a close friend come over for the day, it was so nice to visit with had been way to long!

My Apple Crisp turned out good yesterday as promised I will share it with you.
Now, I will not claim this to be completely 'clean' recipe but a big improvement from my normal version.
The girls picked these apples from our own tree and helped me prepare them for the dessert.

Apple Crisp

6 Cups Apples Sliced
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup Oats
1/2 cup 5 Grain Cereal
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup Pure Maple Syrup
1 tsp. Cinnamon

1. Wash and slice apples into a greased 8 x 10 pan. {I left the skins on.}
2. Combined the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add butter and combine until the mixture is coarse.
3. Pour the maple syrup over your apples and then top with dry mixture.
4. Bake in 350 degree oven for 25- 35 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve Warm!!!
