apple pear

Full Recipe in Details

This week’s food inspiration is one of my favourite things to do with oats, honey, apple, pear and strawberries. Yep you may have guessed it – Apple and Fruit Crumble. I love it so much as its equally good hot or cold. Its also lasts for ages in the fridge, so double the quantities and have a healthy breakfast, mid morning or afternoon snack ready to go for during the week. It’s also great as a school recess snack for kids – healthy, filling and nutritious and even better with some yoghurt!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and diced

  • 2 medium pears, peeled, cored and diced

  • 150 – 250 g strawberries, trimmed and diced (use berries if you like instead) – optional

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1/3 cup water

THE CRUMBLE MAKING
  • 1/3 cup plain flour ( I like using almond or corn flour (GF))

  • 1/3 cup local honey

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats ( increase to a cup if you love a good crust like I do!)

  • 80g unsalted fresh butter, chopped

  • Ice-cream, yoghurt or cream, to serve

GUIDE / INSTRUCTIONS
  • Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Combine fruit, juice, honey and water in small saucepan over low-medium heat. Cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes or until fruit is slightly softened.

  • To make the crumble, combine the flour, honey, oats and butter in a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

  • Transfer fruit into a large ovenproof dish, draining off some of the liquid. Sprinkle crumble mixture over the fruit and bake in oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden and toasty!. Serve warm with Ice-cream, yoghurt or cream and a sprig of fresh mint!

NOTES

Have a super, healthy and happy week ahead.
