Apple Berry Crumble

apples, berries and oats

Months of nonstop rain and/or snow mean we have been spending a lot of time inside – A lot of time inside, running out of crafts to make, and games to play, and then turning the TV on to get us through the last half of the afternoon. Recently, E watched an episode of Peppa Pig in which Peppa’s family goes blackberry picking and then makes a crumble.

For once Peppa was actually doing something I could reproduce easily at home (no boat, no hot air balloon, no mud involved). E asked if we could make one as well. Of course I had every berry on hand except blackberries, but I didn’t let that stop us. The crumble would work as a dessert (with ice cream) or as a breakfast (with ice cream!!).
