Warm, juicy, stewed fruit zinging with ginger and lemon zest, topped with crunchy almond cinnamon crumble, this dish is just heavenly, the best comfort food on a wet, rainy winter’s day.

The crumbly oat topping and fruit mixture is simply delicious on its own however a dollop of creamy yogurt or a rounded scoop of vanilla ice cream is a match made in heaven.

The best part about this dish is that is it free from refined sugar, butter and gluten! So good enough to eat for breakfast!

STEWED FRUIT

  • 2 pears, peeled and cut into chunky slices
  • 4 peaches, peeled and cut into chunky slices
  • 2 apples, peeled and cut into chunky slices
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • ½ cup of water

CRUMBLE TOPPING

  • 1 cup of almond meal
  • ½ cup of gluten free oats
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ¼ cup of coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • ½ cup of chopped almonds
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon of salt

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Slice fruit into large bite sized pieces and place into a medium sized saucepan. Add ginger, lemon zest, honey and water. Simmer over low-medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until the fruit softens slightly (Do not overcook, the fruit should still be firm in shape).

Whilst the fruit is cooking, prepare the crumble mixture. Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir to combine (you can use your fingers here to create large chunky crumbly pieces).

Once the fruit is ready, pour mixture into a ceramic or glass-baking dish and top evenly with the crumble topping. (If there is too much excess liquid left over from the simmering process, discard before adding the crumble mixture on top). Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until the top of the crumble is lightly brown and crunchy.
