Better-for-You Tip: When it comes to the fall, nothing is more fitting than a hot-from-the-oven fruit crisp that when it’s baking, it fills the whole house with a sweet comforting aroma. And to think you can enjoy this guilt free since we packed it with lots of apples and pears, reduced the sugar by half from grandma’s old stand-by recipe, and made sure we added lots of fiber in our buttery tasting oatmeal topping. If you’d like, you can swap out the bit of sugar it has with your favorite sugar substitute. (Check the conversion amount recommended on the package.) Yup, just another way to trim the calories and added sugar.
