Fruit Crisp

On a cold/lazy day, want to eat something sweet, but don’t want to make a detailed recipe. In this circumstance you can certainly pick this dessert that is slightly sweet and healthy. One might question – How can a dessert be healthy? Yes it can be, this is filled with fruits, nuts and oats. This recipe is very easy and quick. The top will be crisped nicely and the inside will be soft. My 11 year old daughter baked it today :)..
