Blueberry Oat Crumble

Prep Time: 15 mins   Baking Time: ~20-25 mins

I cannot take complete credit for this recipe...before I knew about the save feature on Instagram, I would screenshot delicious recipes I wanted to try. But the screenshot would often leave out important information like, what the recipe was actually for or who it was by!

Anyway, I made some little tweaks & put in my own spin & was very pleased with how it came out! I've been enjoying this for both breakfast & a snack!
