Lets’s face facts: everyone loves a crumble! So warming, so comforting, and usually so full of fat and sugar. Not when you make it the Wildcat way! And not only that, my simple, healthy Crumble recipe takes less than 15 minutes to prepare (and much, much less time to devour!)
For the crumble topping:
100g coconut flour
Handful of nuts of your choice – I used pecans (hazelnuts, almonds and brazils also work well)
1tbsp of coconut oil
2tbsp of butter (I used Kerrygold Organic Grass Fed Butter)
50g coconut palm sugar
Splash of almond or coconut milk
1 x packet of frozen mixed berries (I used Waitrose Summer Berry mix and added a drained tin of black cherries too, but any type of berries can be used – feel free to make your own selection, or combine frozen packets for ease)
Large piece of root ginger, cut into small pieces
2 tbsp of pure maple syrup
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
In a food processor, combine all crumble ingredients and pulse until a coarse dough has formed. If the mixture seems very dry, add a little more milk (just a splash at a time so as not to make it too sticky) until a dough-like consistency is achieved. Set aside.
In an oven proof dish, combine the frozen berries (or whatever fruit filling you have chosen to use), chopped ginger and maple syrup until they have mixed well. Spread the crumble topping over the berry mixture until it is evenly covered, and then bake in the oven for approximately 20 minutes, but check every 5 minutes to ensure topping isn’t burning – if so reduce the heat or cover with tin foil to prevent burning.
I served my crumble with Oppo ice cream which is made with coconut oil, stevia and fresh milk instead of sugar and cream, so you get the same delicious ice cream taste without the high calories, not to mention the superfood boost in each flavour – the salted caramel has added lucuma which is full of antioxidants and great for your skin!
Crumble and ice cream that’s actually good for you? I’d call that a Wildcat Winner! Please tag me in your photos if you give this recipe a go, I love seeing your creations 🙂 Instagram and Twitter: @wildcatfit
