Apple Raspberry Crisp with Maple Oat Topping

Desserts, Heart Healthy Foods for Life, Leslie's Featured Recipes.
This heart healthy recipe uses whole-wheat flour and oat bran and, as a result, it's a great source of fibre.  This delicious, high fibre dessert is great with many types of seasonal fruit.  Try locally-grown peaches or pears instead of apples, and blueberries or strawberries in place of raspberries.
