Foodista's Apple-Peach Crumble

I decided to throw together some fruit and oats for a quick, low-maintenance dessert. Not wanting this to be super rich, I made sure to incorporate healthful and flavorful ingredients such as lemon juice, lemon zest, brown sugar and cinnamon. The result was quite good and I'd recommend trying it with any of your favorite seasonal fruit. It satisfies a sweet tooth and is also a great comfort food.

Foodista's Apple-Peach Crumble:

Ingredients (serves 2):
1 large Granny Smith apple (or any apple of your choice), peeled, cored and sliced
2 small peaches, sliced (you can substitute with apricots, plums or any other fruit)
2 tbs of old fashioned oats
1 tbs of brown sugar
The juice of 1/2 lemon
The zest of 1 lemon (or slightly less if you don't want it to be too lemony)
2 small sprays of non-stick spray
2 modest dashes of cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients except the old fashioned oats in a medium bowl and let macerate for about 5 minutes. Place the mixture in two small oven-safe ramekins and then top with old fashioned oats and 2 quick sprays of the non-stick spray. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and the mixture is bubbling. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5-7 minutes. Enjoy this while warm after a nice dinner or snuggle up with it while watching your favorite TV show.
