Quick and Easy Granola Crisp

In anticipation of my beach getaway, I’ve been trying not to stuff myself full of sweets. Can I tell you how difficult that is when you have an intense sweet tooth?  One of my favourite dessert is strawberry rhubarb crisp and lately I’ve been modifying the recipe to make it a bit more healthy and kinder to my waistline.  Bye bye for now butter, my old faithful friend; and a hearty hello to this low fat version of an old classic.  I call it my Quick and Easy Granola Crisp.  I hope you enjoy.
