Fig Apple Oat Crumble
Serves: 6 to 8

- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan (or similar size) with cooking spray.

- Place the oats, flour, shredded coconut, cinnamon, salt, and chopped walnuts in a bowl.
- In a small saucepan over low heat, add the honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Stir often until the mixture is evenly combined and melted.
