This Apple Crisp with Berry Compote Makes a Delicious Healthy Dessert

In anticipation of the new Food Network Canada series Wall of Bakers premiering in March 2022, we're highlighting recipes from some of the female judges featured on the show. Here, Saskatchewan-based baker Tracey Muzzolini shares one of her best healthy dessert recipes.

Here’s a healthy twist on the classic old-fashioned apple crisp, served with honey berry compote and Greek yogurt (a more nutritious substitute for ice cream).

The recipe calls for oats, which are dense with nutrients, high in vitamins and minerals and contain powerful antioxidants, as well as Kamut, which is an ancient grain high in fibre, magnesium, zinc and antioxidant minerals.
