🍁🍂 Happy Monday lovely people. It’s day 24 and this is the cosiest desert ever. There’s something so nostalgic about fruit crumble and it always brings a smile to my face. Going vegan, rest assured that you won’t miss out as this tastes exactly the same as regular crumble 😎
What you will need (serves 2):
For the crumble
– 150g plain flour
– 90g light brown sugar
– 90g vegan butter/margarine (I used coconut spread)
– 50g oats (optional)
– 1 tsp nutmeg
For the filling
– 3 apples peeled and cored
– 100g blackberries
– 1tbsp maple syrup
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp ground ginger
– 50ml water
Preheat your oven to 180c fan/200c convection oven
Add the filling ingredients to a pan on a low to medium heat for 10 minutes with the lid off. Leave to cool as you make the topping.
Put all of the crumble ingredients into a bowl and mix them together with your hands until it becomes crumbly in texture.
Put your stewed fruit into a dessert dish (or distribute into separate ramekins for individual puddings). Crumble to topping over the fruit and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the top is golden brown.
Your house will smell amazing and your tummy will be very happy indeed 😊

* The ingredients in this crumble have many health benefits and I will list just a few:
– Cinnamon. What can I say? It’s one of those things that makes food taste like a treat and looks after you without you even realising it. It is a powerful antioxidant and anti inflammatory, great for protection against disease as well as painful conditions such as arthritis. It also has beneficial effect on neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s by protecting neurons and normalising neurotransmitter levels.
– Apples are also quite impressive when it comes to the prevention and the fight against disease. Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer with their antioxidants and flavonoids, apples are always a good idea.
– Blackberries are detoxifiers. They help to balance electrolytes and encourage iron absorption.
