I was at a loss of what to make for breakfast again when i saw the punnet of fresh strawberries calling out for me in the fridge. I wanted to make some oats bars initially, but i can see it being hard to chew for my baby who has just been to the dentist. So I made something different but better, fresh strawberry crumble!!! This is a fuss free and highly customizable recipe, i can see you guys substituting strawberries with your favourite fruits 🙂

This recipe serves 2. Feel free to double or even triple it to suit you.
