Apple & Fig Crumble

Apple & Fig CrumbleEnter, my favorite hashtag –> #gettinfiggywithit

You guys know my love for figs, so of course I just have to use this clever hashtag every time I put a picture of figs on Instagram. You know, because I think I’m super funny. What? You don’t think so?

Apple & Fig CrumbleApple & Fig CrumbleThis crumble is about as easy as a crumble/crisp recipe is ever going to get. Just throw some fruit in the bottom of a dish, pulse all of the crumble ingredients in a food processor, and top the fruit. It really is that easy. I can not tell a lie.

Apple & Fig CrumbleWant to know a secret? I have eaten this for breakfast every day for the past week, and Kenny didn’t even get any. Oops, my bad. #sorrynotsorry. It’s not like I didn’t tell him all about this amazing crumble recipe that I made and was keeping in the fridge. He just never tried it.

I mean, it’s really his own fault, he acts like a small child when it comes to figs. He has never tried one, yet he thinks he doesn’t like them. Nope, won’t even try them. It’s weird, actually, because he is normally not too picky and will pretty much eat anything I put in front of him. That’s fine though, more for me.

Apple & Fig CrumbleApple & Fig CrumbleFig season only lasts for a short time, so you better run out and get yourself some figs ASAP. They pair perfectly with the sweet apples and crunchy nut/seed/oat crumble topping. SUH GOOD. But not to fear, if you are one of those weird ones people that doesn’t like figs, you can just use apples, or pair the apples with some type of stone fruit. I’m thinking peaches, nectarines, or even berries if you want to get crazy.

Apple & Fig CrumbleThis is the perfect light dessert or healthy fruit-filled breakfast. Or even lunch, snack or dinner. Whatever floats your boat. Not that I ate this for dinner or anything. Nope, definitely not.

If you guys make this pretty crumbly bowl of goodness, tag me on Instagram and show me your pic! Hashtag #thewheatlesskitchen, I love to see your creations!
