This is a delicious recipe; my husband loved it warm with vanilla ice cream. I appreciate the healthier ingredients too.

This was our Christmas Day dessert- I added 1/4 cup of slivered almonds to the topping and used brandy soaked berries instead of apricots. I did not have to twist my father-in-law's arm to give him a morsel more of the crispy topping...Yum!
