Natural Chocolate Peanut Butter? Count me in!
One of my favourite parts of apple crisp is the sticky sweet nectar that unites the crunchy ingredients with the fruitful warm bite of apple. I kept that the same in this recipe, but added a flavourful boost to make the oat crumble include a hint of crunchy chocolate peanut butter delight.
