Di's Apricot Crumble Is The Ultimate Hiking Dessert

By The Wild Women On Top Team

If there's one thing Wild Women love, it's delicious, nutritious desserts. We love savouring dark chocolate on a long hike, celebrating special occassions with homemade cakes, and sharing our Wild Women choc chip cookies when we settle down for a cuppa on a clifftop.

When you're hiking overnight, you don't need to miss out on a delicious, decadent dessert. Di has perfected this apricot crumble recipe which you can make on the trail on a multi-day hike.

It's easy, it's quick, it has limited ingredients, it's delicious, and it's the ultimate post-dinner treat for an overnight adventure.

Enjoy!
