pot of gold

Sadly, our favorite farmers' market is closed for the season. On our final trip I did manage to score one final fresh fruit - beautiful golden pears from local orchard. Jackpot! I mean, what's a better way to sneak in more fiber and vitamin C in my carnivore and kid?

Since I had a few apples left from my CSA too, I decided to use the Whole Foods recipe finder phone app (a must have for any foodie out there) to see what I could make with what I had on hand. And what do you know, up popped this recipe for a spiced apple and pear crisp. What's great about this recipe is that it is heavy on the spices (and thus the flavor), but not on the sugar. Plus, the rolled oats are touted by some for helping lower cholesterol and decreasing heart disease.

Best of all, this bubbly pot of fruit was an instant hit at this house. I love when I can get my family to scarf down things that are good for them like pears, apples, and oats. The simple sound of them scrapping their bowls is golden. Hope you get a chance to enjoy it too!
