Make Apple Crumble in a Jiffy

By Momma Chef

My oldest son gets all the credit for this dessert. After spending a wonderful autumn day picking apples, he asked me to make a yummy treat with the fruit we had collected. Together we assembled some ingredients, and this family favorite was born. Honestly, it is worth making just for the delicious aroma that fills the air.

Simple and Delicious Apple Crumble
• 1 cup old-fashioned oats
• ½ cup brown sugar
• ¾ cup whole-wheat flour
• 1 tbsp. cinnamon
• ½ cup avocado oil or melted coconut oil (or any vegetable oil)
• 6 Granny Smith apples cut into 2-inch squares (peeling apples is optional)

2. Mix oats, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and oil in a bowl.

1. To save time, do not peel the apples.
