Zucchini Crumble

Are you an apple fan? Then you will love this - you cannot tell it is zucchini.

Zucchini Crumble (Level 1 carbo) (made in a crockpot)

zucchini peeled & seeded to make 8 cups when sliced in wedges like apple slices (Use large firm zucchini)
water to cover
2/3 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup white whole wheat flour
3/4 cup sugar substitute** (I use Whey Low)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/3 cup Promise fat free margarine

Put the zucchini in a large saucepan, add water. Bring to a boil, turn heat down and simmer about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain well and let cool.***

Mix together the oatmeal, flour, sugar substitute, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and margarine.

Layer half the apples in the crockpot. Top with half the oatmeal/flour mixture. Layer the rest of the apples, then the remaining oatmeal/flour mixture.

Cover and cook on high for about 2 1/2 hours.

Serve warm.

**You many want to use 1 cup sugar if you prefer it sweeter
**Sometimes I use half regulr sugar substitute mixed with hald brown sugar substitute

***You can steam the zucchini rather than boiling - just steam until almost tender
