let's get ready to crumble!!!

to be more accurate... tonight i'm making a "crisp".  here is the recipe i used as my starting point: peach crisp from real simple

here is what theirs looks like:

for my gluten free about 1/2 the size varriation this is what i did:

1.)  instead of peaches i used nectarines and blueberries (simply because they were the only non rotten fruits in my house.)

2.)  i used 3 and a half table spoons of sugar and NO flour to coat my fruit. 

3.)  for the topping i used 1/2 cup of light brown sugar, a "healthy" pinch of salt, about 6 table spoons of butter, 1 cup bob's red mill gluten free rolled oats (love these), and 1/2 cup of trader joe's almond meal.

before the oven ready for it's close up...

and now baking for 30 minutes and then a look see to see how things are going...

30 minutes was plenty long enough...

it is bubbling and HOT from the oven!!  i can't wait for it to cool down so i can try it!!  

i'm only trying a "taste" since it's late.  but i have a pretty good idea of what i'm having for breakfast...

HOLY MOLY... i am good!!  and so is the crisp...  hahaha.  i expected it to be good, but it is nothing short of gluten free magic!!  my only change for next time would be that i might take the skins off the nectarines, because they got a little weird after baking.

a crisp success!!  YAH!!  have a happy gluten free day, and make yourself this crisp!
