Heartwarming apple crumble

When I visit family we always have this delicious crumble for breakfast. It’s filled with apples from the garden and seasonal berries. In the winter we use frozen berries, really does taste just as good! This crumble is refined-sugar free and gluten free and really is heartwarming 🙂

I’ve not only been eating this as a treat in the weekends, but I’ve started getting into the habit of making it during the week and having it as a snack or as a quick breakfast to take along when I have rushed mornings! It’s best warm and fresh of course, but it’s also really good to bring with you and top off with some coconut yoghurt!
