This dish came about because there were plums ripening on the counter, and they needed to be used up quickly. On the second testing, apricots, peaches, and plums were used, and the crumble tasted even better. You can, of course, use any stone fruits you have around. Healthified Fruit Crumble is quite fast to put together, too, since the skins are left on the fruits for a little extra nutrition and fiber. Even though this dessert doesn’t rate as actual health food, no one will guess that it’s been healthified; who knows, it may even become a family or neighborhood favorite.
