What you need:

Fruit Crumble
Rhubarb adds a nice tanginess to this spring dessert.

Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats (large flakes)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal (or finely ground almond)
  • 1/2 cup raw coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp organic salted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

Fruit

  • 3 cups peeled and chopped apples
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp arrowroot starch

What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350C. Grease a deep medium-sized baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the rolled oats, almond meal, cinnamon and sugar. Add the coconut oil and mix until you get a coarse, crumbly mixture. Set aside.  
  3. In a large bowl, combine the fruit ingredients and mix well. Pour into the greased baking dish. Add topping spreading evenly over the fruit mixture. Sprinkle the sliced almonds on top.
  4. Cook in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until fruit mixture is bubbly and topping is golden. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. 
  5. Serve warm in small bowls and top with coconut whipping cream or ice cream.

Bon appétit!

Substitution tips:

  • Replace the rolled oats with quick-cooking oats.
  • For a vegan or dairy-free version, replace the salted butter with coconut oil.
  • Replace the sliced almonds with slivered almonds or chopped nuts.
  • Use any combination of fruit that is in season.
