Ginger Pear Crisp
I love to serve this for breakfast in the winter, but crisps are a great dessert (try it with vanilla ice cream!) or treat anytime. This version is especially healthy, so no guilt needed.

    Recipe Notes

    A basic crisp recipe is a great starting point for other crisps. Try peeled, sliced apples instead of pears, cinnamon and nutmeg instead of ginger, melted butter instead of oil, nuts instead of oats. The possibilities are only limited to your imagination!
