Shanna, our fellow resident foodie, recently made an blueberry apple crumble that tastes amazing, is great for the gluten-free among us, and won’t affect your waistline.
Naturally, I had to share it! If you’re looking for a delicious, low-carb dessert to try out at home, this is it.
I know you’ll love it just as much as we do.
150g fresh blueberries
85g granny smith apple (approximately half a medium sized apple), peeled, cored and cubed
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp butter
25g almond meal
25g coconut flour
30g mixed chopped nuts (hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts, flaked almonds all work wonderfully)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp demerera sugar (more to taste)
1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
2. Grease a small baking dish with butter or coconut oil.
3. Wash your blueberries and transfer to the dish – do not dry them off, a bit of moisture will help.
4. Add the apples to the baking dish and sprinkle the sugar over the fruit
5. Distribute the tablespoon of butter over the fruit.
6. Combine the almond meal, coconut flour, chopped nuts and cinnamon into a crumble mix and cover the fruit with it.
7. You can sprinkle more sugar and nuts on top if you wish.
8. Bake for 20-25 minutes and serve warm with creamy yoghurt.
To add a new flavour to your crumble, scrape the seeds of a vanilla pod into the sugar and mix before adding to the fruit. A perfect extra ingredient that will add a lovely fragrance to the dish.
