Betty Crocker's Heart Healthy Cookbook shares a recipe! Full of flavor, this warm fruit dessert is perfect for company.
medium peaches, peeled and sliced (2 3/4 cups)
cup fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) blueberries
tablespoons packed brown sugar
tablespoons orange juice
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground nutmeg
cup Honey Nut Clusters® cereal, slightly crushed
cup chopped pecans
cup frozen (thawed) fat-free whipped topping
Heat oven to 375°F. Spray bottom and sides of square baking dish, 8x8x2 inches, or rectangular baking dish, 11x7x1 1/2 inches, with cooking spray.
Place peaches and blueberries in baking dish. Mix brown sugar, orange juice, cinnamon and nutmeg in small bowl; drizzle over fruit.
Bake 15 minutes. Sprinkle with crushed cereal and pecans. Bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until peaches are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve warm or cold with whipped topping.
You can still eat dessert and the foods you love--but perhaps a little different version of them. Typical fruit crisps can often be very high in fat, calories and carbohydrates. This one, with its topping of crushed cereal and nuts, gives you the same great crunch and taste but with much less fat and calories, shares nutritionist Juli Hermanson, Bell Institute of Health & Nutrition at General Mills.
Measure the cereal in a 1-cup dry-ingredient measuring cup, then press down with your fingers to crush it in the cup to 2/3 to 1/2 the original amount.
