Zucchini-Apple Crisp

Is it dessert? Could it be breakfast? Can I count it as a serving of fruits and veggies? Yes, yes and sure thing! But wait, there’s more. If you have a picky eater in the house (or maybe a few), this crumbly crisp is the perfect way to sneak some greens into their lackluster diet. In a mere three steps, you get the perfect balance of sweet and tart with the kind of gooiness you’d find in Grandma’s very best apple pie.
