apple + berry crisp

Updated: Oct 1, 2019

this really is one of those recipes that instantly makes you feel cosy and content on the inside

bursting with blueberries and apple-y goodness this crisp is the perfect mid-week dessert or weekend breakfast treat

i also find this recipe super effective when my boyfriend decides he needs ''something sweet'' after dinner, its quick to whip up and stores really well in the freezer for months if need be

...and of course, if it survives that long

prep time: 20 minutes

cook time: 15 minutes
