Old-Fashioned Fruit Crumble

Eat Healthy

A fruit crumble is an easy yet elegant way to satisfy your sweet tooth in a natural, healthy way. 

High in vitamins and fiber, fruits contain natural sugars called fructose that, when baked, caramelize into a sticky, gooey goodness that requires little to no added sugar. 

Feel free to improvise and use any combination of fresh or frozen fruit to meet your taste preferences and seasonality. 

For example, stone fruits like peaches and plums are at their peak during the summer months, while pears are at their juiciest in the winter. 

Apples and frozen berries, such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, work well year-round.
