Wild Berry Apple and Oat Crumble

By now, for those that are checking out my blog know that my recipes are normally given a nutritional lift, meaning that alterations are given to the recipes so that fat, and sugar are used in less quantities and that complex carbohydrates (whole grains) are used instead of the refine ones, simple carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates have always had a bad reputation but the thing is that not all carbohydrates are created equal and not all of them are bad. The ones to stay away or minimize their intake are simple carbohydrates which are processed and refine sugars. Anyhow I won’t bored you with technicalities.

I have come up with this recipe. The texture of this crumble is not the same as a regular crumble recipe would be, but never the less still pretty good and much better for you.
Every summer I try to incorporate fruits into my desserts and this is a super easy way to do that.

You can use any other type of fruit in this recipe, peaches, pears, strawberries and raspberries work pretty well. Also, you will not spend tons of time to get this dessert done. The pealing of the apples is what takes the longest. This dessert will not disappoint.
