A skillet version of classic fruit crisp, healthy enough for breakfast! We love to eat this for breakfast in the summer and fall when fruit is abundant. It is a nice alternative to oatmeal if you want to avoid milk. You can substitute butter for coconut oil use different types of fruit: apples, peaches, plums, or nectarines, peeled or unpeeled. Add apple juice if oats are not yet complete and mixture begins to dry out.

Was looking for something different for breakfast. This is great. I used walnuts instead of almonds and added a little shredded coconut. Read More

It turned out okay I doubled the cinnamon and halved the honey. The amount of honey probably should vary depending on how sweet your fruit is but 1/2 a cup is a lot. Read More

I love this! So quick and easy to make for a healthy breakfast. I wouldn t use as my Sunday night dessert. The only thing I changed is the coconut oil. I used cinnamon maple Ghee instead. It s what I had on hand and figured it would work perfectly and it did. This recipe had a granola type consistency which would pair well with some Greek Yogurt. Read More

My family LOVES this! It s excellent as written but also incredibly versatile. Apple is delicious as is blueberry peach and mixed berry (fresh or frozen). I adjust the honey depending on the sweetness of the fruit. And I ll switch out the cinnamon for other seasonings such as lemon zest with the blueberries. I don t mix the nuts in when cooking but have them available as an optional topping. We serve it in bowls and pour milk over it like a hot cereal. Sometimes we ll splurge and top it with lightly sweetened whipped cream. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! Read More
