With a deliciously, crunchy, oaty and nutty crumble sitting a top a sweet and juicy apple and blackberry base – this crumble makes for a decadent dessert or an equally delicious healthy breakfast!


  • 4 Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled and cut into bit sized pieces

  • 250g blackberries, fresh or frozen (thawed if frozen)

  • Juice and zest of 1 orange

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup

  • Crumble 

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1 cup sliced almonds

  • ½ cup almond meal

  • ½ cup coconut flakes

  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil

  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup

  • Pinch of sea salt


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180’C

  • 2.

    Put the apple, orange juice and maple syrup into a saucepan over a low heat and cook until the apples are soft but not mushy, about 5-10 minutes

  • 3.

    While it’s cooking stir it every few minute or so to prevent it sticking to the bottom of the saucepan

  • 4.

    Transfer the apples and cooking liquid into individual bowls or one big pie dish, then place the blackberries on top

  • 5.

    To make the crumble: Place all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, then using your hands, rub the coconut oil and maple syrup in to the dry ingredients until it resembles a clumpy crumbly mixture (if you rub it in too much, the crumble won’t be as crunchy)

  • 6.

    Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the apples and blackberries and bake for 20 minutes for small crumbles or 40 minutes for large crumbles, or until the crumble is cooked and golden

  • 7.

    Serve warm with coconut ice cream or vanilla bean yoghurt
