Apple, Cranberry and Gingernut Crumble


One of my family's favourite desserts are fruit crumbles. My husband and the kids like them because they are warming, and sweet, and soft and crunchy, all at once. I like them because they are easy to make, and any way my kids will eat a whole bowl of fruit in one sitting is a good thing for me!

This crumble is great when you don't have much time to prep it up, but you can let it sit in the oven for an hour.

4 apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks

1/3 cup Craisins (dried cranberries)

2 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp cornflour (cornstarch)

1 packet (about 12) gingernut biscuits (cookies), crushed

1/3 cup quick oats

1/4 cup LSA mix (ground linseeds (flaxseeds), sunflowers and almonds - great source of omega 3 oils)

3 tbsp softened unsalted butter

  1. Preheat oven to 170C/375F.
  2. Grease a 2 1/2 quart baking dish with cooking spray or butter
  3. In a large bowl, toss together apples, cranberries, lemon juice, brown sugar and cornflour. Place in baking dish
  4. In a smaller bowl, stir together biscuit crumbs, oats and LSA mix. Mix in butter with your fingers until mixture is crumbly.
  5. Sprinkle over apple mixture, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 30 minutes. Serve with warm vanilla custard or icecream.

You have inspired me! I have a packet of gingernuts that were left open on the bench for too long on a rainy day this week, rather than throw them out I'll crumble!
