A few weeks ago Miss Mitsy (aka-Artmind) put up a tutorial/recipe on her blog for a crumble. Having enjoyed apple crisp for years I thought I would give this a whirl. It has a lot of different fruits and nuts in it as opposed to straight up apple crisp.

Then I was informed that I couldn't put in any walnuts or almonds. Apparently when you have kidney failure (as my husband does) nuts are up there in the 'do not eat' category. (shouldn't I have that list memorized after 4years?)

So I was left wondering what to put in with the 'crumble' part. I chose to substitute the nuts in the crumble with oatmeal and it is goooood! We also took out the raisins but that is mostly because I don't like any baked goods with raisins in it.

Our customized Crumble consisted of:
Bartlett Pears
Granny Smith Apples
Dried Apricots (only a few as these are a kidney 'no no' as well)
Oat Meal

and then the flour, sugar, butter mix for the top.

Here is the before shot:

And here it is moments before going into my mouth:

I really recommend you trying out the recipe. This is delicious with the extra fruits mixed in! Someday I hope I can try it with the walnuts and almonds too, though the oatmeal was a pretty great fill in. Thanks for sharing Mitsy!

Sounds D-lish!
Once this flu has decided to pass, I'll have to try it...I'm a sucker for almonds.

Oh and I sent my "little something" to Mitsy yesterday too. Can't wait to see what comes my way :) {pssst...I already know something wonderful should be popping up in your of my friends agreed to play along and her work is gorgeous!!!} YAY!
