Seeking out comfort foods, I came up with the following recipe out of desperation and a desire to use those last few granny smith apples sitting in the fruit basket.
Not-Your-Granny’s Apple Cobbler:
- 4 green apples, sliced and cored. [I left the skins on, but most people would probably remove them. I’m lazy.]
- 1/2 chopped walnuts
- 1/3 cup craisins
- 1 cup Blue Diamond unsweetened vanilla almond milk. [only 30 cals per cup!]
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup raw honey
I literally just mixed this all together, threw it into my crockpot on low, and let it slow simmer for about four hours. When I got home, I topped it with So Delicious Vanilla Bean Coconut ice cream (no sugar added) and dug in.
It was sinfully good and the walnuts gave it a slight crunch and buttery texture, so I didn’t miss the crust at all. And this was ridiculously easy to prepare, with leftovers to enjoy for breakfast tomorrow! Not bad for a “what’s left in the pantry” concoction, if I do say so myself!
