Apple and Blueberry Crumble

I’m a huge fan of dessert, particularly those warm wintry pies and puddings that make perfect comfort food. Of course eating desserts full of butter and sugar is not something I can afford to do every day so I have created this lighter version that allows me to indulge more often.

The crumble mixture can be adapted with whatever you have at home. I make it using avocado oil but you can substitute any oil or even use butter if you prefer. Replacing the oats with any grain works too, I’ve also used flaked quinoa with good results.

Using quinoa flakes also produces a yummy crumble

I make this with pink lady apples, they’re lovely and sweet and hold their shape when cooked. The blueberries can be replaced with any other berry or left out completely. Apple and plum would also be delicious.
