Baby Friendly Apple Crumble (Apple Crisp)

Baby Friendly Apple Crumble (Apple Crisp)


Apple crumble has always been one of my favourite foods! There is just something so warm and comforting about this classic dish. 

This version can be made completely sugar free or you can use a little bit of maple syrup to add some extra sweetness. 

Everything is cooked in the oven, so it's just a case of prepping everything and popping it into the oven.
