Apple Crumble Slice
My spark of inspiration for this DELICIOUS recipe comes from three individuals…
1) My friend Kristin Cosgrove who used to have a recipe blog when she posted a recipe for Apricot, Almond and Oat Slice on her gorgeous blog, which itself was inspired by…
2) Jude Blereau’s recipe from Wholefoods for the Family, and…
3) My son who, 9yrs old at the time, suggested that using apple instead of apricot just might actually make it taste like apple crumble AND that if I left out the nuts we could put it in the school lunchboxes.
When you are open to it, inspiration is everywhere!
This recipe is also perfect to take to picnics, or to have for dessert with a lovely helping of thick, rich cream!
