Who doesn’t love the old classic apple and rhubarb crumble?!
Well I sure as hell do, but of course I love eating nourishing wholefood desserts more… so I grabbed a classic and put a twist on it to make it a healthified alternative.
I used extra berries in the recipe to enhance the flavors and sweetness without the need to add any refined sugars! BOOM!!
This is one of the EASIEST Healthy Desserts – EVER- I can make it while dinner is cooking or throw it together after we’ve eaten, ready for dessert in half an hour! Bliss!!
I also used certified Gluten Free Oats, make sure, if you are Coeliac or gluten intolerant you check the oats are made in a gf factory of there own – and not contaminated.
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do! It has been on rotate on our house for the last couple of weeks and I dont see it stopping anytime soon 😛

WHOLEFOOD APPLE, RHUBARB & BERRY CRUMBLE
INGREDIENTS (CHOOSE ORGANIC WHERE POSSIBLE*)
- 3 Green Apples, Cored & Peeled
- 1 cup Organic Mixed Berries
- 1 Bunch Rhubarb, washed and cut into 3cm peices – roughly 8 -10 stems
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 tbsp GF Plain Flour
- 1 cup GF Oats
- 1/2 Almond Meal/ GF Flour
- 1/3 cup Walnuts, roughly chopped
- 1/3 Silvered or flaked Almonds, roughly chopped
- 1/3 cup Dessicated Coconut
- 2 tbsp Ghee, Coconut oil or Butter (butter will make it no longer dairy free)
- Optional: 2-3 tbsp Coconut Sugar
Preheat oven to 180C.
Place apple, cinnamon, lemon rind and 2 tablespoons of water in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cover. Cook for 5 minutes or until apple starts to soften. Add rhubarb and flour. Cook, covered, for 3 minutes or until rhubarb just softens.
Remove from heat, spoon through berries.
Transfer to oiled or baking paper covered Baking Dish.
In a separate bowl combine crumble mixture.
Use finger tips to rub the butter mixture until it resembles a course crumble mix.
Sprinkle over rhubarb mixture. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden. Cool 5 minutes.
Serve and eat immediately. It will keep for 5 days in an air tight container or freeze for another day – if you can keep your mits of it!!
