QUICK NOTES…

  • The walnut-oats crumble on top will stay “crunchy” only the day you bake it fresh.  After 24 hours, the crumble texture will soften. 

  • Store on the counter, covered with clear wrap.  It will stay fresh for up to 3 days. (if it lasts that long!)

    This sounds like my kind of fall crisp. My husband will go nutty with the walnuts. And with oats and apples added, it makes a great tea-time dessert.
