Apple Crumble

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Jauxell

This is a simple low sugar version of a crustless apple crumble. Changing the type of apples will also allow for different flavors and textures. I have used Golden Delicious apples mixed with Empire apples and have been very pleased.

Due to dietary restrictions, I substituted tapioca flour for barley flour, oat bran for wheat germ, and left out the lemon juice I also added some fresh mulberries. The topping was crunchy and delicious!
