Healthy Holiday Apple Crumble Pie

This year we decided to take a new spin on a traditional Apple Pie. In the past we have made a yummy Better Than Apple Pie - Apple Tart , but were looking for a new and healthy challenge. We found this simple recipe from Men's Health Magazine and decided to give it a go. The recipe uses one pre-made pie crust with no hydrogenated oils and has an oat crumble topping instead of another heavy pie crust. We will definitely make this simple, tasty apple crumble pie again!
