Apple berry oat crumble :)

This is an experiment to try making a somewhat healthy dessert, that's can still warm the cockles.  It was a total experiment, but I think it turned out well.  It was awesome served with some Greek yoghurt, but you could also use warm custard, cream, or even a nice vanilla ice cream! 

The berries released their delicious red juice into a lovely sauce, and dyed the apples bright red.  Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the ready product, oops! :)
Just as I put it in the oven, when cooked it turns into a golden crunchy oaty topping with a delicious saucy red base :)
2 Granny smith apples
1 cup mixed blueberries and raspberries (I used frozen, use fresh if in season and available)
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Crumble topping
2 tablespoons butter (I used "can't believe it's not")
a cup or so of quick cook oats
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Peel, core and slice the apples finely and place in a pie dish
Throw the berries and sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon on top, and mix until evenly spread around. 

To make the "crumble", melt the butter and then add the sugar, oats and cinnamon.   Sprinkle/spread on top of the fruit and bake until the fruit is cooked and the top is lovely and brown.  Mine took about 25 minutes in a hot (200C) oven.  Let sit for a few minutes before serving.
