Apple Crumble- G/F, D/F & RSF


 

This “dessert” can be had as a breakfast, as it has all your vital nutrients to start the day with, who doesn’t want pudding for breakfast?

This beautiful crumble taste better than it looks, it is totally guilt free, so if your watching that waist line it’s the best option for you! If you’re also strap for time it only takes 25 mins in total to prepare and cook! A gorgeous dish to WOW your friends with while still being healthy.

 

What you will need:

  • 2-3 cooking apples
  • 1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 cup of almonds
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts
  • 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons of pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • A pinch of Himalayan salt

Alternative ingredients 

  • These are things you can add to the dish if you desire.
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Banana
  • Coconut yogurt (Vegan, D.F option)
  • Or if you prefer plain yogurt

 

How to:

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees, wash and chop your apples roughly keeping the skin on the apples. Squeeze half of fresh lemon over the apples then drizzle 1 Table spoon of pure maple syrup and toss apples in your baking dish. Pop in the oven for 10 mins- we want the apples to soften but not totally brown.

While the apples are in the oven, it’s time to start making your crumble!

In a food processor pop your walnuts, almonds and pumpkin seeds -(if you choose to add) on high to make more of a grainy texture- this may only take a few seconds! Alternatively you can chop all these finely, it will give you a more “rustic” look.

Then in a big bowl combined your crumble mixture with your cinnamon, Himalayan salt, coconut and your last Table spoon of maple syrup, toss through the nut mixture.

 

Once apples have been in oven for 10 mins, take out of oven and toss through your mixed frozen berries. – I like to use blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.

Pour over your crumble mix, covering the apples, it’s meant to look rough so don’t be too neat about it!

Pop back into over for a further 15 mins.

Then serve!

 

If you would like to make this into a meal instead of a pudding feel free to add half of a banana sliced on top, pumpkin seeds or yogurt. Get creative and have it for breakfast!

 

I love sharing with you all the nutrients that are in our food, it’s great to keep mindful about what we are eating so instead of butter and refine sugar your key nutrients are:

  • Omega’s 3
  • ALA
  • Antioxidants
  • Protein
  • Magnesium
  • Manganese
  •  Vitamin C, K
  • Folate
  • Iodine

Along with a great source of fiber, healthy fats and much more to give you the fuel that your body craves.

Enjoy,
