Our family are fruit crumble l-o-v-e-r-s. Dessert, breakfast, school lunches…. doesn’t matter. With all the goodness in this meal, you don’t need to reserve it for dessert!

You’ll sense the difference between this crumble and the ultra-sweet supermarket versions. And everyone I’ve served this up to says they love it. It’s delicious and they can sense it’s doing their insides some good! Even my super honest nieces and nephews agree 😉

This is a super versatile recipe! A few notes:

  • Use whatever fruit you have on hand
    A great ‘make the day before you go food shopping’ meal, you can use whatever in-season fruit you have left over from the week. I used about 8 small apples, a small tray of rhubarb, a cup or two of frozen berries and a few random strawberries I had sitting in the fridge. Pear and rhubarb go great together FYI.
  • Add whatever ‘boosters’ you have on hand
    I’ve included a few nutritional ‘boosters’ in this recipe because I love to squeeze ’em in at every chance I get! I used hemp seedschia seeds and maca powder here. You can sub them out altogether or swap ’em out for something else. Use your health needs for motivation. For example, if you’re working on your gut – you might like to add a little slippery elm powder and banana flour. Immune system need a boost? Throw in some of nature’s vitamin C powder – camu camu powder!
  • Leave the sugar out or add it in. It’s up to you and your taste buds!
    I often leave the coconut sugar out and just sprinkle a little maple syrup over the top. 
  • The addition of quinoa gives this meal a crazy super nutrition boost, but if you prefer a more crispy, crumbly topping, try subbing it out for oats – still totally nutritious.

Ingredients:

Filling

  • Fruit of your choice (see note above)
  • Juice of 1 x lemon
  • 1 tspn ground ginger (any excuse to add the super healing ginger in – the better!)
  • A drizzle of rice malt syrup (for extra sweetness without the fructose. Use maple syrup / coconut sugar if you don’t have rice malt syrup on hand)
  • A splash of water if needed.
Crumble
To serve
Yoghurt / cream / ice cream of choice.

Directions

1. If you don’t have cooked quinoa on hand, pop that quinoa on the boil now (1 cup quinoa : 2 cups water. Once it boils, reduce to a simmer for about 15 mins or until all the liquid is soaked up. Fluff with a fork).

2. Preheat oven to 180°C. 

3. Chop fruit into pieces around 2cm wide and pop into a fry pan on low-medium heat with the rest of the filling ingredients.

4. Let simmer for a few minutes until partly cooked, but not mushy.

5. While that’s goin’ on, throw together the crumble ingredients and add in the cooked quinoa.

6. Assemble the crumble by layering the fruit (with the juices from the pan – don’t leave that behind!) on the bottom of a large baking dish, and pop the crumble mixture on top.

7. Cook for 15 mins, or until you feel the top is cooked / browned / crispy enough.

 

Enjoy that bowl of delicious real food goodness!

Laini Oldfield ~ Founder, The Wholefood Collective

Trying to eat nutrient-dense food free of pesticides and additives was driving Laini, Jordan and their 5 kids nuts! So the Wholefood Collective (TWC) was born. Started from their garage for their own family, TWC now makes whole foods ‘doable’ for every Aussie family, through access to highly vetted, home delivered, organic whole foods at big savings.

Her favourite part of the job though? Supporting people with simple solutions to get robust nutrition happening at their place.

Laini's biggest achievement is bringing her own family across the line, but she's also personally helped over 13,000 families to better nutrition and energy through TWC's signature 21-Day 'Wholefood My Family' Challenge, and at live workshops.

With a particular interest in using food to help achieve specific health goals (functional food), and strategies to boost nutrition in family meals without being 'detected', Laini loves discovering more about the powerful force for good that food can play in our lives, and then putting that to work.

Laini's goal is to see more Aussies thrive with clear minds, plenty of energy, stable moods, and robust immunity, through the nourishment that comes to body and mind through real food.
