Apple-Strawberry Crumble with Oat-Walnut Topping

Sometimes the simplest of desserts are the most pleasing ones.

What I love about crumbles is that you can really play around with combinations of fruit you choose to bake. I used apples and strawberries in this recipe but you can replace it with blueberries, raspberries, rhubarb and so on. Here is a great recipe from the Food Network Magazine.
