With its emphasis on whole grains (oats, barley and wholemeal flour), fruit (apples and berries) and nuts (almonds), this could be the ideal health dessert. Top off the crumble with a dollop of low-fat vanilla yoghurt or reduced-fat custard.
One of the most popular snack fruits, apples supply vitamin C as well as some potassium. Eat the peel to get the full measure of fibre. Pears are also a good source of fibre.
This apple crumble is simple yet healthy and delicious. The delicious topping uses almond meal and complements the apples so beautifully you hardly notice it's gluten-free! Granny Smith apples work best, but any will do.
This apple crumble recipe really lets the apples shine. The topping is crunchy and light, thanks to the baking powder and bicarb. Extra advantage - it's all cooked together in one dish.
You can improve on a traditional apple crumble with the addition of some fresh strawberries. Serve with ice cream or custard.
