Healthyish Apricot Crumble

So for those of you that follow me on Instagram you saw the pictures of the apricots that I overambitiously bought at Costco. While I love apricots I can only handle so much before they start to ripen too quickly for me to handle. Of course that means I needed to make a dessert of some sort to use the apricots so they would not go to waste.

I mean really, how could I saw no? Look at them!!


But really... Look at how pretty they are!

Although I wanted to have dessert I was also conscience of the fact that I have been eating well and I am making my way to reaching my goals and I did not want to totally disrupt that sooo I came up with this Healthyish Apricot Crumble.

I knew that I wanted to make a crumble but I wanted to limit the butter and the sugar intake so that it wasn't too sweet, too heavy or too decadent. I know, I know decadent and dessert goes hand-in-hand buttttttt it is summer and it is hot and well sometimes a nice light crumble is perfect. 

You could even throw some ice cream on top and that would take a way a bit of the healthiness but I did not have ice cream so I improvised and well it's love.

Healthyish Apricot Crumble: 4 servings
2 cups sliced apricots (about 8 apricots)
zest + juice of 1 medium sized juice lemon
1/4 cup agave nectar *
1 small sprig rosemary, chopped
Crumble:
½ cup rolled oats
¼ cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup coconut oil- room temperature
Yogurt Cream:
2 TBS Plain Non-fat Greek Yogurt
1 tsp Agave Nectar*
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In an oven safe pan place the apricot mixture.
Using a pastry cutter incorporate the coconut oil with the dry ingredients for the crumble. Mix until it is incorporate and the pieces are pea like (shape and size). Spread evenly on top of the apricot mixture.
Bake for 35 minutes.
Let cool and top with a small spoonful of the greek yogurt mixture.  
*more or less to achieve your desired taste, I wanted it slightly tart.

So what do you say, gonna give it a go?
What fruit/items are you overambitious with when you visit Costco? 
Thanks for popping on in!
Stay Crafty
