I was invited to a Hanukkah party and asked to bring a healthy-ish dessert. After scouring the internet for easy recipes, I decided to ask my Facebook friends for ideas. The first comment was from Beth, and I knew that it was a winner. Here is what she said:
“My favorite recipe is from a 70’s Betty Crocker cookbook. It calls for both oatmeal and flour. The most important part: freshly grated nutmeg. That’s right, no pre-ground nutmeg. And I use Granny Smith apples. They hold their shape and aren’t overly sweet. Everyone in my family loves it, so I make the topping and keep it in the fridge. That way I can make apple crisp at the drop of a hat (as long as there are apples in the house). I’ve been making this recipe since high school and now my nephew asks me to make it, so it has stood the test of time in my family.”
Here is a link to the recipe. However, it doesn’t mention to use fresh nutmeg, so you will need to remember to do so.
I didn’t know how to grate nutmeg, so it was recommended that I get the following grater. If you click on the photo, you will be taken to the product. There are a bunch of them on Amazon. You can also find them at Target, Meijer and other large grocery chains.
