What You'll Need

  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL nutmeg

How to Make It

1. Spray an 8x8 inch grill safe baking dish with cooking spray. Mix together the sugar, flour, butter (cut into pieces), oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Arrange fruit in the baking dish and cover with mixture evenly.

2. Cover with foil and place on preheated grill. The temperature should be around 350 degrees F/175 degrees C.

If the grill gets too hot prop the lid open an inch or two.
