Apple crumble magic
Apple crumble is one of my childhood favourites and my daughters also seem to love it. Apple and cinnamon is a classic flavour combination and I love when the kitchen is filled with the sweet smell of cinnamon. It is a staple spice in my pantry, as cinnamon is excellent for blood sugar balancing. It aids in balancing energy levels throughout the day and sugar cravings subside.
