Vegan, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Refined Sugar-Free

 

Ingredients

(Serves 12- 1 fruit halve each)

3 pink or green apples (pink tend to be sweeter)

3 brown pears

 

Crumble:

1/4 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup chopped almonds

1/3 cup gluten-free oats

1/4 cup rolled quinoa (or buckwheat or extra GF oats)

1/4 cup whole buckwheat

1/4 cup sunflower seeds (lightly dry toasted)

1/4 cup pepitas (lightly dry toasted)

2tbsp organic chia seeds

1/4 cup orgaic dried or fresh fruit (e.g. dried baby figs, goji berries, chopped fresh dates, sultanas, chopped fresh or dried apple etc)

2tbsp melted organic cold-pressed coconut oil

2tbsp organic maple syrup

 

Method

  • Pre=heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line 1 large baking tray with baking paper.

  • Slice both the apple & pears lengthways. Slice or scoop out the cores of each. Can choose to leave the stems in tact.

  • Place the fruit on the baking paper, flat side down & bake for 20-25 mins, until they have softened slightly.

  • Remove tray from oven and turn all apples & pears over onto their rounded edges.

  • In a mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients (except maple syrup & coconut oil) & combine until evenly mixed.

  • Add coconut oil & maple syrup, mix until mixture is evenly,  lightly coated.

  • Spoon the mixture into the middle of the fruits (where their cores have been removed). Keep spooning until you have created a mound ontop of each half (as in photo). 

  • If there is leftover mixture- scatter around the pears & apples to have as extra crumble or bake on a separate tray to save for later as granola.

  • Place fruit into oven for 20-30 mins until crumble is browned & nicely toasted and the fruit has warmed up again!

 

Serve with:

  • Natural yoghurt sprinkled with the extra crumble!

  • As in photo- I topped with Freezedried pomegrate for serving & a little bit of extra colour!

 

The beauty of this dessert is that if you don't finish it all, you can save it for breakfast, a snak or dessert the next day!

 

This was a definately a crowd pleaser! Enjoy this beautiful, healthy dessert!
