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

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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

Step 4

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

Chef's Notes

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.

We had a Caribbean theme progressive dinner in our neighborhood and I thought this would be a fun dessert to share. Based on previous reviews I decreased the rum by half and used light rum as it was all I had. It turned out great and was quite a hit!
