Today has been windy and blowy and a little cold compared to what we are used to on the Gold Coast at this time of year. The weather made me feel like eating comfort food, so I indulged in making this Berry and Apple Crumble. It is easy to make a crumble when you eat sugar and grains, my apple crumbles used to have at least a cup of brown sugar! When I put my mind to it I was able to create this beautiful sugar and grain free version that was equally as delicious.
6 peeled & sliced apples
1/2 frozen berries
1 cup almonds
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoons coconut oil or butter (if you are not opposed to a bit of butter)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Turn the oven on and heat at 180 degrees. Peel & slice the apples and put of the stove to simmer in hot water until soft. Once the apples are cooked, drain and put to the side.
To make the crumble topping, place the almonds and coconut in the food process and whizz for a minute. I like my topping a little chunky, so I didn’t whizz in down to fine. Place the mix in a bowl and add the coconut flour, cinnamon & honey and mix with a folk. Finally add the soft butter or coconut oil and mix with a folk until the mix is crumbly. Place the stewed apple in a pie dish and top with the frozen berries. Pour the crumble mix onto the top of the apples and berries, gently press crumble down. Put in the oven for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm with cream, coconut yoghurt or simply on it’s own. The left overs might even make a delicious breakfast option.
