This is awesome, and easy. Who ever though packaged oatmeal was good for anything but a mid-morning office hunger-buster (thanks to you, hot water tap).
So, here it is. The Cranberry Apple Crisp. Starring….packaged oatmeal! I have made this dish both in a casserole dish and in little, individual oven safe bowls. If you do the latter, take them out of the oven hot and put a cold soop of vanilla icecream atop the granola crumble and you won’t evey turn away from this recipe. You have no reason not to make this.
Cranberry Apple Crisp
3 c. chopped Granny Smith apples
2 c. fresh cranberries
1 c. white sugar

3 (1 5/8 oz.) packages quick-cooking oatmeal (vanilla or cinnamon & spice or apples & spice)
1/4 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. melted butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the apples and the cranberries with white sugar and flour.

Bake uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes.
