Apple and Pear Crumble

This apple and pear crumble is the dessert to get you ready to head into autumn. No only because the pear is season, but also because apple and pear make the perfect pair for a crumble! What’s also perfect about this crumble is that this simplified recipe is handy to make when you want it quick and easy. This is because the crumble and stewed apples and pears are assembled in the bowl. They are then topped with coconut yoghurt which brings some lightness to this spiced treat. 

Serves 2-3 

Cooking time: 25 mins


2 small apples 

2 small pears

1 tbsp unrefined cane sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/3 tsp nutmeg

Crumble topping

1/2 cup plain flour

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup unrefined cane sugar

1.5 tbsp London Bruncher almond and espresso butter

1 tbsp solid coconut oil

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Coconut yoghurt to serve

  1. To make the crumble add the almond butter and coconut oil to the dry ingredients. Massage the mix until it becomes a crumbly texture, not to chunky or too loose. 

  2. Place the crumble on a baking tray and bake in oven on 200ºC for 15-20 mins, mixing around half way through. 

  3. Peel and chop the pear and apple into small cubes (1 inch). In a small pan slightly caramelise the sugar on medium to high heat and when it become slightly run, add the apples and pears coating them thoroughly with the caramelised sugar. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and stir through and then place lid on the pan and let it cook down on low to medium heat, stirring intermittently. They should have softened but still have a shape after 10 mins. 

  4. To serve add the fruit filling to the bowl and top with the browned crumble. Finally serve with a dollop of coconut yoghurt.
