Cranberry Apple Crisps (Dessert for Breakfast)

Dec 3, 2012
I have been attacked by the worst case of writers block..All I have done for past couple hours is stare at the screen, type a half-sentence or two, hit delete and again continue with the blank staring! 

And I give up.

Before my brain completely shuts down,  let me tell you this - oat coated concoction of apples & cranberries with pumpkin pie spice is the best thing I ate this weekend..Straight for two days, its like eating a dessert for breakfast. Do I need to say more? 

Just scroll down to the recipe and treat yourself to one easy, delicious breakfast full of whole grains & fruits.  Okay, add little bit of vanilla ice cream- it won't hurt ya. 

Cranberry Apple Crisps
For 2-3 servings

1 apple, chopped 
1 cup fresh cranberries
2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2/3 cup old fashioned oats
2-3 tablespoon brown sugar
