This recipe is great for apple crumble, pear crumble, rhubarb crumble, forest fruit crumble, well, any kind of crumble really. It takes literally no time at all and is really easy, plus it's great if you have a last minute dinner party and had forgotten to grab the dessert, all you need is some fruit. 'THE EASY' healthy dessert at any time of year and the best part, no added sugar, the fruit makes it sweet enough (you could also whip it up as a post workout treat).
If you wanted to make it a little richer and more Aztec'y, you could add some Lucuma and Mesquite to sweeten and boost the nutritional profile.

Mesquite powder, also know as Algarrobo, is native to Peru, Ecuador and Columbia and for centuries was a staple food for ancient South American desert dwellers. Boasting 10g protein per 100g, studies* suggest it can also help balance blood sugar levels.
