Microwaved Apple Peach Quinoa Crumble

20140814-141751-51471175.jpg

I use my microwave to reheat beverages only. Many of my friends no longer use it for various reasons.
However I had some apple and peaches to use up and I’m a little tired of fruit salad and muffins.
So I decided a crumble but I didn’t have the time to bake it. In the end this only took me 15 minutes!

Ingredients
4 Apples not peeled, chopped
3 Peaches not peeled, chopped
3/4 Oats
3/4 Quinoa Flakes
4 TB Flour
3/4 Brown Sugar
3/4 melted butter

Directions
Spray a 9×9 glass bakeware and place apples and peaches in
In a bowl combine all dry ingredients
Melt butter and add to dry ingredients and mix until crumbly
Spread over fruit and pat gently
Microwave on high for 6-8 minutes or until fruit is tender
