Fruit Crisp Mix

There is nothing worse than having that terrible craving for just a bit of something sweet and having nothing in the house unless you make something big, like a pan or cake. You really don’t want to go to the bother, specially when its summer hot, and you really don’t want to be eating it for several days. You just want that little….”something” sweet.

I love all the recipes for “_____  in a Jar Mix” that you find all over the net now.

I found this one and it had everything I like a lot in it so I tried it. It’s delicious! This is a crisp mix, not to be confused with a cobbler type mix. Honestly there isn’t that much difference other than the cobbler has baking powder in it so that it rises more like a cakey topping, but just so you know what you are making here I’ll make the distinction.

The original recipe was made to make small snack sized baggy amounts so that you could stuff it in a cup with a ribbon or bow and give it as a gift.  I wanted something I could store and have in the house rather than use it that way so I x8’ed it.  I’ll give the recipe for both so you have a choice of how to make it.

Baggy/Gift sized recipe

2 T quick oats
1 T sugar
1 T brown sugar
1 T flour
Cinnamon (I add this because I think anything is better with a little cinnamon. Add to taste or not at all.)

Measure into a Ziploc baggy, seal and shake to combine.  Stuff in a mug or glass jar and attach this tag.

Tag: Melt 1 T butter in cup. When done, add mix and whisk well until blended. Pour in fruit and microwave 2 minutes.


Big amount for storing in your kitchen  (I put mine into a mason jar)

2 cups quick oats
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
Cinnamon  (I add this because I think anything is better with a little cinnamon. Add to taste or not at all.)

I put a little tag inside the jar with the directions. Use just shy of about a 1/3 of a cup of mix/ (that’s 5 T.) Of course, you can tweak it to your own tastes on how much you use.
