The Best Apple Crumble

5.17.2018

I've always loved apple crumble but before I started eating healthier, it didn't even cross my mind that you could make it healthy!
This apple crumble is low in fat, processed sugar, lipoproteins (bad cholesterol), salt etc.-but high in fibre and is two of your 'five-a-day' per serving, without additional fruit!




Six medium-sized apples, diced




Oats and flour


Incorporating oats into your diet only will only reap you benefits. A few of these are that:
  1. Oats can reduce your blood sugar levels.
  2. Oats are fortified with iron.
  3. They are rich in antioxidants, including avenanthramides.
  4. Oats contain an incredibly important soluble fibre called Beta-Glucan.
  5. Oats give you slow-release energy, keeping you fuller for longer.
  6. Because of the slow-releases of energy that they provide you with, eating oats can aid you in you weight-loss.
  7. They can lower your levels of 'bad cholesterol'.
