Gluten free and Grain free Fabulous Fruit Crumble

This Gluten free fabulous fruit crumble is a very quick and simple dessert to make, using whatever fruit you have to hand. For a sweeter finish, include banana, dates or apple.

Just cut your fruit of choice into chunks, and stew in a covered pot with a dash of water until fruit is soft enough to mash. To thicken the mixture, add cornflour dissolved in a little water. The trick here is to remove the pot from the heat before stirring in the cornflour. It will then thicken nicely.

Transfer the mixture to a well-greased oven dish.

To make the crumble, you will need:

  • almonds
  • coconut oil
  • coconut sugar
  • an egg
  • a pinch of salt

Mix all the ingredients together and spread the crumble mixture over the fruit. I find that the best way to do this, is to add dollops into the centre and, with your fingers, gently draw the crumble outwards.

Bake in the oven until the fruit starts to bubble and the crumble has turned golden brown.

I served with sour cream, but cream, custard or ice cream would do just as nicely.
