Banana-Mango Crisp

Go tropical with this easy fruit crisp featuring banana and fresh mango and a crumbly topping of oats, brown sugar, coconut, and ginger.

Cooking Light JANUARY 2003

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)

Ingredients

  • 5 cups sliced banana (about 6 bananas)
  • 3 cups chopped peeled mango (about 3 mangos)
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup regular oats
  • 1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut, toasted
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine first 3 ingredients in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, oats, coconut, sugar, ginger, and salt in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Add 1/3 cup oat mixture to banana mixture, stirring gently to combine. Sprinkle remaining oat mixture over banana mixture.

Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.

Note:

If you don't want to use rum, you can still achieve a tropical flavor by using 1/4 cup pineapple juice in the fruit mixture.
