Peach & Apple Crumble {oil & refined sugar free}

Tuesday, July 03, 2018

While warming, hot desserts are often restricted to the colder months, I think that there are far too many amazing fruits around in the summer months not to make a dessert or two from them and, as we all know, the most superior dessert on the planet has to be the humble fruit crumble which is super simple but never fails to taste great! Two of my favourite fresh, summery fruits are peaches and apples and, if you haven't guessed already, I decided to throw them together in a, surprisingly healthy, crumble that combines the fresh and fruity flavours of peaches with the warming, comforting flavour of apple compote. As I make my apple compote by stewing apples in apple juice, I was super excited to discover a brand of apple juice, Pago*, that not only tastes amazing in my apple compote, but also fits in with my desire to cut back on waste by using glass bottles instead of plastic! All in all, this fruity crumble is super easy to make and tastes so fab that you can enjoy it, whatever the weather!

You Will Need:
- 5 donut peaches
- 2 medium apples
- 75ml cloudy apple juice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 275g spelt flour
- 100g coconut sugar
- 125g coconut cream (from the top of a can of coconut milk)

Start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees celsius then roughly chop your apples and add to a a pot along with your apple juice and cinnamon then place on a medium heat until softened and reduced.

As the apples simmer, slice your peaches into chunks and add to an oven proof dish.

In a separate bowl, combine your flour with the coconut sugar then add the coconut cream and combine until your mixture resembles a loose cookie dough.

Once the apples have simmered for around 10 minutes and have softened, add to the peaches in the oven proof dish along with the remaining apple juice from the pan.

Now, top your fruit with your crumble mixture and place in the oven to bake for around 20 minutes or until totally golden on top.

After baking, you're ready to serve and this crumble definitely tastes best when eaten hot from the oven. Like every crumble, this dish tastes amazing drizzled with some Alpro custard but, for a fresher option, it also tastes great topped with a little coconut cream!
