The magic formula ingredient for topping is Grape Nuts

What are Grape Nuts?

Grape Nuts is a 100% natural cereal made from natural whole-grain wheat with barley. Delicious whole-grain foods like Post Grape-Nuts (with 52g whole grain per serving)* provide naturally-occurring fiber (7g per serving) and nutrients that you need every day. But what truly makes this cereal unique? It’s the naturally-sweet, unique crunch baked into each and every one of those tiny nuggets!

Apple crisp, or apple crumble would seem like the type of old time dish that’s been passed along for generations. You could pretty much visualize our ancestors eating it at the Sunday dinner table. Despite this antique feel, apple crisp has a surprisingly short historical past.

Apple crisp does not make an appearance in cookbooks til the early 1900’s, so its creation most likely only goes back a few decades before.

The apple dish grew to become immensely popular having a few years of appearing in cookbooks, as newspapers and word of mouth spreading the recipe, but Grandma always knew how.

The advantage of apple crisp is that it’s considerably easier to make than apple pie, another fall favourite. As opposed to needing to be able to create a crust for a pie and then get it baked just right, a surprisingly difficult task, apple crisp only requires that you be able to layer the ingredients in a appropriate pan.

It’s not a breakfast food, it’s not a healthy snack, it’s a sweet, buttery, deliciously crispy dessert.
