Apricot and plum crumble

This crumble has a greater amount of fruit and only a small amount of topping. This is a great way to get that extra sweet fix while keeping calories low.


1⁄4 c brown sugar
1⁄4 c flour (whole wheat flour)
1⁄2 t cinnamon (ground)
1⁄2 t nutmeg (ground)
1⁄4 c butter (unsalted, soft)
4 plums (stoned and cut into quarters)
4 apricot (stoned and cut into quarters)
1⁄2 c oats

  4. Place in a hot oven and back for approximately 40 minutes or until fruit is tender.
