Skillet Apple Crisp - no sugar, no flour

What you need: 

1/3 cup oats - quick cooking
1/4 cup oat bran
1/4 cup spelt bran
2 tablespoons margarine
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce or raw puree
1/4 cup blueberries or cranberries (optional)

What you do: 

In a 6" non stick skillet, over medium low heat, mix the dry ingredients with the melting margarine and maple syrup. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
Spread the oat mixture out evenly across the bottom of the skillet and pour your applesauce over it.
Sprinkle the blueberries, or any berry for that matter, dates, chocolate chips, nuts, whatever you might like, over the applesauce and cover with a lid.
Turn the heat down to low, and let cook for about 7-10 minutes.
To serve: use a flipper to remove from the pan, or take a plate slightly larger than the skillet, place it up side down over the skillet and flip the whole thing out onto the plate.
Serve with your favorite topping - yogurt, whipped topping, etc.

Will this work with fresh chopped (diced) apples instead of applesauce? Or does the applesauce hold it together somehow?


Yes, I do it with only oatmeal as well - and it works just fine.  I like to add some variety to my grain intake when I can, and l look for different ways to mix things up. 

Ground flax seed can work too instead of some of the bran...
