Dessert: Apple and Feijoa Nut Crumble

Apple & feijoa nut crumble

This recipe came about when I was participating in a 28 day clean eating challenge. I was given A LOT of cooking apples and feijoas from my parents, so I went to work stewing them all. And what to do with some of this stewed fruit.... a nut crumble of course!! So here you go, here is my recipe for Apple & Feijoa Nut Crumble - refined sugar free, grain free & gluten free

Note: I had 15 cooking apples and over 40 feijoas, that I stewed in a crayfish pot! (So if you have less fruit, use less vanilla, cinnamon and honey)

Peel, core and roughly chop the apples, add these to a pot along with 1 cup of boiling water. Give it a stir, then add 3 teaspoons of vanilla, 2 tablespoons of honey, 3 teaspoons of cinnamon and a sprinkle of stevia (a natural sweetener - next time I wouldn't add the stevia). Let this simmer on a low heat for 20 minutes. The apples will go mushy - but that's what you want! Turn the heat off, stir the feijoas through. Leave everything in the pot to cool. 


Nut Crumble

1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup cashews 
1 cup walnuts
1 cup coconut, desiccated
85g butter


Blitz the nuts in the food processor till crumbly then stir in the coconut and rub in the butter. 
Sprinkle over top of the apple & feijoa mixture and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 160C, or until the nuts are brown and to your liking. Serve with cream (optional).

Note: The baking dish I used was 20cm x 30cm. 


Enjoy!
