What would the world be without dessert ?! Arguably, nothing! It would be like Juliet without her balcony, and even without her Romeo. Thankfully that was just a mental hypothetical question, and in reality, I aim to encourage my sweet tooth every now and again simply because it makes me happy! To do this, I’ve developed an array of desserts which are on the nutritious side, and yet which taste incredible. This oxymoron of characteristics (healthy deliciousness) is surprising to many who sample them, and today’s blog post weighs in as a serious addition to the roster. Bizarrely, it’s the recipe that I receive most incoming requests for (!?) and so here, ladies and gentlemen, is my Apple, Rhubarb & Blueberry Crumble, which draws upon the titular fruits, as well as seeds, nuts, oats and an array of exotic spices!

LET’S GET READY TO CRUMBLE !!!
I’m not entirely sure what to call this healthy & tasty little experimental dessert! Perhaps ‘Prius’ because it’s a bit of a hybrid! Part apple crumble, part compote, part breakfast… it’s simply composed of 5 core ingredients – apple, cinnamon, coconut oil, manuka honey and (low sodium, low sugar) granola. Unlike apple crumble, this isn’t overpoweringly sweet, but thanks to the baked spices, it packs a serious flavour punch, and is on just the right side of subtle!
In the mind, ‘Baking’ can seem a seriously laborious chore (up there with changing the sheets and taking out the rubbish)… but this dish only involves chopping apples and then sprinkling/drizzling the remaining ingredients around. It’s baking for dummies, and I have found that it’s very hard to get wrong! Granola – yes it’s going to be a touch ‘sugary’, but I opt for most natural option – no refined sugar, low sodium, no preservatives, sweetened exclusively with honey. The good thing about this recipe is that you only need a small sprinkle of granola to make quite a big impact! Read MORE for ‘how to’…
