Simple Weekend Fruit Crumble

 In Desert, Egg-free, Recipes, Uncategorized

This lovely little fruit crumble is a dead simple weekend treat and winter-appropriate family pleaser. It was something I put together spontaneously on a wintery weekend after being inspired by trying to use up the mountains of quickly ripening feijoas.

Why I recommend giving this a go:

  • Healthier alternative to traditional baked or processed treats
  • Low in refined sugar and processed carbs
  • Contains whole food life-giving nutrients
  • Lets the natural sweetness of fresh fruit shine
  • Great way to use up an abundance of fruit


For the fruity part

  • 6 cups of diced seasonal fruit (4 cups feijoa and 2 cups apple in this recipe)
  • 1-2 tbsp lemon juice (or freshly squeezed orange)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp clove
  • 1 tsp all spice
  • 1 tbsp tapioca starch
  • 1 handful organic raisins
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Optional sweetener of choice e.g. 1-2 tbsp honey

For the crumbly part

  • 1 cup almond meal or ground almonds
  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of natural salt
  • Optional sweetener of choice e.g. 1-2 tbsp coconut sugar or honey

How to

  1. Combine all the fruit filling ingredients.
  2. Place the filling at the bottom of a baking dish.
  3. In a clean bowl, combine all the crumble ingredients. Rub the butter into the dry mix to create a breadcrumb consistency.
  4. Spoon the crumble on top of the fruity layer.
  5. Bake for 40-60 minutes at 180°C until bubbly and gooey.

Serves: 8-10
Prep time: 30 minutes + 40-60 minutes cooking time.
