Joanne’s Baked Fruitola

by Joanne on September 21, 2009

Today was the first day of the new workout.  Remember the one I showed you: Get Your Body Back Weeks 3 and 4? Today begins week 3.  This is today’s workout ( I changed Day 6 on the plan to my Day 1 because I don’t want sore or tired legs going into the weekend):  Quads & Hams

  • Barbell squat 4 sets:  15, 12, 10, 8 *Last two of all the exercises are to failure and need to be heavy
  • Hack squat 4 sets: 12, 10, 10, 8 *
  • Leg Extension 3 sets:  12, 10 , 10*
  • Walking Dumbbell Lunge 2 sets:  12, 12* These two sets are both to failure
  • Romanian Deadlift 4 sets:  15, 12, 10, 8*
  • Seated Leg Curl 4 sets: 12, 10, 10*

A warm up of a 3.25 mile treadmill run was just right to get the blood flowing.  The weight workout was followed by a healthy fast paced walk (jogging in places) of 3.4 miles.

Today’s AM good eats:  weekday oats, fruit and a healthy protein shake. 

1/3 cup dry Steel Cut Oats cooked with 1/4 of a banana and dried cranberries.

I felt good. Maybe it was due to enjoying this little treat after dinner.  I don’t usually indulge in desserts but this one somehow made it into my mouth after I took the photo….What is fruitola?  It is a delicious mixture of fruit and your favorite healthy granola, baked like a “fruit crisp”. 

 Baked Fruitola – Serves 8


  1. 2 apples – peeled and sliced thin
  2. 1 peach – peeled and sliced
  3. 1/4 cup lemon juice
  4. 1  cup Granola
  5. 1 tsp cinnamon
  6. 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  7. 8 oz Unsweetened applesauce

Peel and slice the fruits and mix with the lemon juice and vanilla.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray the bottom of a baking dish with non stick spray and add the lemony fruit.  Sprinkle with cinnamon. Top with the granola.  Top the granola with the applesauce.

DSC_1094   Cover and bake for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, uncover and continue baking 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Turn the top over with a fork so you just mix the baked applesauce and granola – don’t mix the fruit slices at the bottom.


Turn the oven to broil and when hot, put the “Fruitola” back into the oven for 2 1/2 minutes.  Serve with light whip cream or frozen low fat vanilla yogurt.

It’s back to work after a terrific weekend spent in Newport.  I’m ready to get things moving again with all the hope of it being another busy week for orders.  Happy Monday!
