Apple, Raspberry and Almond Crumble

Serves 4

Sweet, tart, nutty and crunchy.  Nothing hits the spot like this old fashioned dessert. The combination of apples and raspberries is devine and the crumble comprised most of almonds has a beautiful nutty flavour. Best of all, it's a desert low in both fat and sugar. I serve mine with a dollop of greek vanilla yoghurt.

What's in it?

5 green apples, peeled and cut roughly into 8 pieces
150g fresh or frozen raspberries
2tbs brown sugar
1/4tsp ground cinnamon
2tbs water

40g almond meal (see Note)
4 dried dates, pitted
1/4tsp cinnamon
1/8tsp nutmeg
1tbs coconut oil
40g rolled oats
30g flaked almonds

How do I make it?

1. Preheat fan forced oven to 180°C or otherwise 200°C.

2. Place apples in mixing bowl and chop 3sec / speed 3. 

3. Add sugar, cinnamon and water and cook 8min / 80°C / reverse / speed soft to 1.

4. Add raspberries and mix 5sec / reverse / speed 2. Divide apples and raspberries between 4 individual ramekins. Clean and dry mixing bowl.

5. To make crumble, place almond meal, dates, cinnamon and nutmeg in mixing bowl and pulse on Turbo until combined.  Add coconut oil and process for 5sec / speed 8, until there are no lumps. Add rolled oats and flaked almonds and mix 7sec / reverse / speed soft to 1.

6. Spread crumble topping evenly on top of apples and raspberries.  Cook in oven for 20 minutes, or until crumble is lightly golden.  Serve on its own or with a small scoop of icecream or dollop of low-fat vanilla yoghurt. 

5 ProPoints per serve (not including icecream or yoghurt).


Almond meal is easy to make in the Thermomix.  Just place desired quantity of almonds in mixing bowl and mill 10sec / speed 9.
