Apple and Pear Crumble


Hello to my fellow carers! To help you celebrate the inspiring season of Spring, we are featuring some delicious and colourful culinary delights, guaranteed to fertilise the soul and bring a little healing to the body.


Enjoy this bowl of warmth and comfort for breakfast or a snack. While apples and pears contain fibre and pectin to nourish intestinal flora, protein and good fat from the oats and coconut will assist in stabilizing blood sugar and promote healthy cholesterol.


  • 3 medium size apples, cored and diced
  • 2 medium size pears, cored and diced
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon Crumble
  • 1⁄2 cup plain flour
  • 1⁄2 cup almond meal
  • 1⁄2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons raw sugar
  • 225g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the apple, pear, orange juice and cinnamon in a bowl and mix to combine. Spoon into a 1.5 litre ovenproof dish. For the crumble, place the flour, almond meal, coconut, raw sugar, cinnamon, oats, vanilla and butter in a bowl and mix until just combined. Spoon the crumble mixture over the apple and pears and bake for 40–45 minutes, or until the crumble is golden.
