Blackberry and Apple Crumble

Recipe: Spiced Apple & Blackberry Crumble

Serves 6


For the crumble:

120g ground almonds
100g oats (sprouted is best)
2 tbsp flaxseed
4 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon powder

For the fruit layer:

200g frozen blackberries
2 large cooking apples
1 heaped tsp cinnamon powder
2 tbsp coconut sugar


1) Preheat your oven to 150C. Core the apples and cut into small cubes.

2) Place the chopped apple into a saucepan with the blackberries, cinnamon, coconut sugar and a splash of water (just enough to cover the bottom of the pan). Place the pan over a low heat, and cook for around 10 minutes, stirring frequently!

3) While the fruit is cooking add all the crumble ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well.

4) Once the fruit is softened, add to a baking dish then top with the crumble layer. Place into the oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown on top.

5) Leave to cool for 10 minutes, serve and enjoy!

A plant loving yogi, Amelia is passionate about living a healthy, happy life. Her battle with depression and an anxiety disorder left her feeling unhappy and unhealthy, and after months of sickness she was then diagnosed with both Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Coeliac Disease. She soon realised that if she wanted to be well she needed to look at the food she was putting into her body. She educated herself on nutrition and how food has a direct impact on how we feel, not just physically but also mentally. She overhauled her eating habits, gave up sugar, processed foods and dairy and made a transition to a plant-based diet. Almost immediately she noticed her body started to feel happier and healthier again, she began experimenting in the kitchen – creating delicious meals, tasty snacks and sweet treats that were all healthy, gluten free and vegan…but also wonderfully tasty!

After Amelia saw this amazing change she become more and more passionate about this lifestyle and wanted to share with others just how important looking after your body is and how food & exercise can make improve your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. She set up her blog Nourishing Amelia in December 2015 where she shares her recipe ideas, healthy tips and advice with the aim to help others lead a happy, healthy life.
