MASON JAR FRUIT CRISPS
I'm in love with these sweet little single-serving fruit crisps. You won't believe how easy they are to make with mini mason jars or ramekins. They're a perfect summer snack just bursting with fresh fruit flavors. The best part is they are crazy easy to scale down for 1 or 2 people, or up to a crowd. You can make them with whatever fruit you and your family prefer.
INGREDIENTS: MASON JAR FRUIT CRISPS:
8 cups chopped fruit (such as berries, cherries, peaches, pineapple, plums, apricots, pears, etc.*)
1/3 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 batch Oatmeal Crisp Topping (see below)
OATMEAL CRISP TOPPING
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup almond meal (or all-purpose flour)
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
DIRECTIONS: MASON JAR FRUIT CRISPS: Heat oven to 350°F. Lay out 8 half-pint mason jars or ramekins on a large baking sheet, and set aside.
In a large bowl, add the chopped fruit, maple syrup, cornstarch and lemon juice, and stir until evenly combined.
Evenly portion the fruit mixture into the 8 jars (each should be full). Then evenly portion the oatmeal crisp topping on top of the 8 jars.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the fruit filling is bubbly and the topping starts to brown.
Remove and serve immediately (with ice cream, if you’d like).
OATMEAL CRISP TOPPING: Stir together all ingredients in a large bowl until evenly combined.
*Just about any kind of juicy fruit will work for this recipe. You’re welcome to also use apples, but they will not be quite as juicy (and I recommend adding some extra cinnamon to those). **If making this recipe gluten-free, be sure to use certified gluten-free oats.
