Left Over Fruit Crisp

Sundays have become a day of gardening and cooking for the week ahead.  Its also a great time to use up any leftover produce from the week so nothing goes to waste and we’re ready for our CSA pick up on Wednesday! This week I made Pumpkin curry with tons of veggies, chickpeas, and of course pumpkin (that I grew myself!).  I’m hoping the curry lasts until Wednesday!  I also made a crisp with the leftover plums and apples we had hanging around our fridge.  In an effort to keep it healthy, I decided to go oil/earth balance free and also go light on the sweetener.  I just used a little maple syrup on the fruit and dates and figs for the topping.  It was super simple.  Here’s what you need to know:


Plums, apples, pears…whatever you have or want to have!

1/2 cup maple syrup


For the Topping:

8-10 dates

5 dried figs

1 cup oats

1 cup walnuts


Chop the fruit and mix with maple syrup and cinnamon

Place all the ingredients for the topping in the food processor and process until it forms a crumble

Spread over fruit and bake on 300 for about 20 minutes.  Just until fruit gets hot and gooey.
