Chocolate Oat Apple Crumble

I have an unfortunate sweet tooth. I try to curb it, but sometimes I don’t. Sometimes, however, I think in advance and then make something that’s sweet, but still on the healthy side. That’s when Smitten Kitchen inspired me! Jasmine is a very close family friend who turned me on to “crumbles” very early in my life–particularly apple crumble. This recipe calls for very few ingredients so I decided to give it a go. It was really easy and made the house smell wonderful! I made a Chocolate Oat Apple Crumble and my sweet tooth was absolutely overjoyed without killing my health.

I have to admit that I may or may not have finished this whole thing by myself! I know, I’m bad. But to be fair, it’s not a huge portion. After making this the first time, I would like to double the oats for next time. This recipe is quick, delicious, and nutritious. I also love the versatility of it: you can use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, apples, pears, and so forth. Recipes are the best when you can really make them your own! Make this recipe to stay hungry and fit!
