A delicious and nutritious dessert, that is high in fibre and antioxidants. It's a great winter dessert and it's totaly dairy free and it can be made to be gluten free too.

Ingredients - Berry

  • 4 organic red apples, cored and quartered
  • 350g organic berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries)
  • 1 Tspn honey
  • Olive oil for greasing

Ingredients - Crumble Topping

  • 1 1/3 cups organic rolled oats (use a combination of amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat for a gluten free version)
  • 1/3 cup rice bran
  • 1/2 Tspn ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tspn ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 Tspn ground allspice
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil
  • 3 Tsp honey


  1. Place apple quarters in a saucepan and add 3/4 cup water.
  2. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered for about 10 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
  3. Drain the liquid (add it to a glass container and let it cool, it can be used as a refreshing drink when sugar and mint and ice are added).
  4. Add the mixed berries and honey to the apples and mix them all gently until they are combined.
  5. Brush a shallow oven-proof dish with the olive oil.
  6. Place the apple and berry mixture into the bottom of the dish to cover the bottom.

Method - Crumble Topping

  1. Combine oats, rice bran and spices in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Combine oil and honey and pour over the oat mixture.
  3. Use your fingers to combine the mixture together to ensure the oats are evenly covered with the oil and honey.
  4. Sprinkle the oat mixture over the apple and berries in the oven-proof dish.
  5. Bake at 180°C for about 15 minutes, or until the oat topping is just slightly browned.
  6. Serve immediately.

The crumble can be made up to a day before and baked just before it is due to be served. A dollop of fresh, natural, organic yoghurt (milk, coconut, soy,) can be added to make this a really special treat.
