Apple Crumble

My husband LOVES dessert but since he’s been eating gluten free, he hasn’t had dessert very often.  Until we know for sure that he’s gluten intolerant, I don’t want to invest in all the different kinds of flours because they’re expensive!  But I found this recipe for apple crumble that’s gluten free so I made it for him and he liked it a lot.
