Healthful crumble topping

Healthful crumble topping

Oh I just love making this recipe!, a handful of seeds, a handful of oats, organic flour and ground nut meal, golden butter and all topping our foraged pears from lasts years haul.P1090091

I am not a fan of sugary puddings, cakes or biscuits but I like it when the pudding is full of life giving goodness.P1090084

This will make a great topping for any stewed fruit be it plum, cherry, apple, pear, rhubarb, gooseberry or a whole mix of berries, swing the changes too, maybe add wheat germ instead of ground almonds, ground flaxseed instead of sesame seeds, sprinkle in a few pumpkin or sunflower seed, it is so versatile and will satifise the most have to have a sweet pudding among us, namely GD !  P1090085

Ingredients today were:

One bag of pears from the freezer, lightly stewed with a little water to cover and a sprinkle of coconut sugar or  brown sugar such as muscovado if you haven’t coconut sugar.

For the crumble:
8oz / 200g organic plain flour, I used white today but wholemeal also works just fine.
6oz / 150g grass fed cows butter .
3oz / 80g coconut palm sugar or brown sugar.
A handful or two of oats.
2-3 tablespoons ground almonds.
2-3 tablespoons sesame seed.

Place the lightly stewed fruit in a medium sized oven proof dish.
Place the flour, butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and rub together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.
Add in the rest of the ingredients, mixing in with your hands. When ready sprinkle the crumble mixture over the top of the fruit and place on the middle shelf, oven temperature 190 C /375 F /Gas mark 5, bake for 20- 30 minutes or until the topping is lightly brown and crisp.


Kids adore making this dish and it tastes divine too.

Loved this I found on a montessori pinterest board, note it has meal prep on the list, I thought the other suggestions were awesome too.
