This crumble is definitely what I’ll be making for christmas. It packs a bundle of added goodness from the berries, oats, nuts and spices, and is ow in fat. It’s also dairy-free and suitable for vegans. Win-Win!
- coconut oil to grease the baking dish
- 6 large, sweet apples (such as Fuji, Gala, Braeburn, Pink Lady or Jazz), peeled and chopped
- 200g frozen mixed berries
- 1 tbsp finely grated orange zest
- 1 tbsp almondflour
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch of grated nutmeg
- 3 tbsp maple syrup or honey
For the crumble topping
- 75g oats
- 75g walnuts, chopped
- 50g almonds, chopped
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease your baking dish with some coconut oil.
Peel, core and cut the apples into 1.5cm dices and place in a bowl with the berries, orange zest, almondflour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and maple syrup. Mix well and spoon into the prepared dish. Press down gently with a spatula to create an even layer.
To make the crumble topping, mix together the oats, nuts and cinnamon in a small bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the maple syrup and coconut oil. Stir until fully combined. Crumble the topping over the fruit mixture to cover in an even layer.
Bake for 50–60 minutes, until the topping is lightly golden. Leave to cool for 20–30 minutes before serving. YUM
We all know the feeling – sweet cravings that can sometimes become so present that we can’t think about anything else.
A recipe that I give to every sweet tooth are my Chocolate Bliss Balls.
Bliss Balls are a healthy and filling snack in between. They satisfy the sweet appetite, are a good source of fats from the nuts and proteins and from the chia seeds. They are made quickly and what’s more is you can make them in batches and even keep them in the fridge for weeks.
What do you need:
– A food processor or mixer
– A freezer
Preparation time: approx. 10 minutes
Ingredients for 12 balls:
- 200g dates
- 50g chia seeds
- 50g hemp seed
- 100g almonds
- 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon of almond butter
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
Put the nuts in a mixer and chop them small. Add the dates, chia seed, hemp seed and coconut oil and mix well, then add the almond butter and cocoa and mix for about 2 minutes until a thick mass forms. If necessary, you can add a little more water to the mixture.
Roll the dough into small balls, the balls can be the size of a golf ball.
Optionally you can roll some balls through cocoa powder, others through grated coconut or thinly chopped nuts, for example.
