This low-in-added-sugar, high-in-fiber crumble is perfect for diabetics craving dessert. It's easy and convenient to put together thanks to using both frozen and fresh fruit as well as store-bought bran flakes. The sweetness and added color of using mixed berries and pears makes this dessert quite the showstopper. You'll also love the crumb topping, which frankly is the best part of any crumble, that features toasted old-fashioned oats, the bran cereal, flour, brown sugar, ground cardamom, and margarine.
