Crumble in a food processor
ADD 1½ cups oats – and blitz into flour.  ADD coconut oil | butter, sugar, maple, vanilla, salt + spices.  BLITZ until well combined and beginning to create a thick crumble mixture.

ADD crumble topping over fruit scattering and spreading with a fork into an even layer.

* BUTTER | COCONUT OIL – use 4 to 5 tbsp, up to 6 tbsp = depends on taste + texture you like and how much fat content you want.

 

APPLES – do not peel – the skin is good for you, and the food processor does a great job of chopping up the apples in seconds.

 

SWAP maple syrup for fruit jam in crumble = ¼ cup jam + 1 tbsp water. 

 

SWAP pumpkin seeds + pecan for sunflower seeds or nuts like walnuts, hazelnuts, or skip altogether.

 

FREEZING RHUBARB – I have successfully frozen sliced rhubarb and used it in a dish like this in the winter months.
