Fruit crumble has got to be a family favourite in our house. However as you will no doubt know we are not currently eating gluten, wheat, dairy or sugar so therefore the traditional crumble has gone out of the window.
However when I recently received a Food Discovery Box to review it contained a bag of Chiltern Natural Foods Apple and Cinnamon Crunch which is a wheat free, sugar free and salt free granola. This delicious granola contains chunks of freeze dried apples, cinnamon and raisins. As soon as I saw that it was wheat free I knew that it would be a great substitute for a traditional crumble topping.
Here is this weeks Family Favourite recipe...
Free From Fruit Crumble
Ingredients - Serves 4
6 bramley apples (750g - 800g), peeled and chopped
100g dried cranberries
150g dried mixed fruit with candied peel
2tsp mixed spice
Chiltern Natural Foods Apple and Cinnamon Crunch
1 - Place the chopped apples, cranberries, dried fruit, mixed spice and 1tbsp of water in a pan and heat over a medium heat for 10 minutes or until the apple has started to break down but chunks still remain.
2 - Remove from the heat and rest for 5 minutes allowing the juices to combine together.
3 - Divide the fruit into 4 individual serving dishes and sprinkle over the apple and cinnamon crunch, then serve.
This desert is a healthy way to enjoy a dessert. It can be served as it is, with either regular custard or dairy free custard or even cream.
However you decide to eat it you can do so without too much guilt!
