On Today’s Menu:
Apple Mango Coconut Crisp
1 large mango
4-6 apples (any variety)
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/2 coconut (optional)
2-3 c. oatmeal (depending on consistency you prefer)
Set oven to 375~.
Prepare your fruits. I prefer the peel on the apple. It adds to the color palette and warmth. But peeling the mango is a must.
Cut the fruit into medium size chunks. Too small and the apples turn to mush. Throw them in a large skillet with the butter and brown sugar.
Heat till soft, but still crispy in the center.
Remove from heat and stir in the oatmeal and about 1/2 of the coconut. (coconut optional)
Butter the bottom of a large baking sheet (a cake pan will do). Spread the mix evenly in the pan and bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the remaining coconut on top. Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream.
As always, feel free to tweak it. It’s all in the belly of the beholder. Happy Eating!
