Apple & Blackberry Crumble

 

Since I made it for the first time I completely became obsessed with this recipe! It’s perfect for those wintery days to have a cheeky dessert that’s comforting as well as super healthy. However, it’s a total winner in the summer too as you can serve it with a bit of creamy vegan vanilla ice-cream on the side – yum!

 

Ingredients

Crumble layer 

  • 180 grams oats
  • 200 grams almonds
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 80 ml maple syrup

 

Bottom fruit layer

  • 7 red apples
  • 200 grams blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

 

Method

 

  1. Preheat your oven to 180c.
  2. First start by making the crumble layer. Place the almonds in a food processor and blend until it forms a flour.
  3. Then mix the almond flour with the oats in a bowl.
  4. Place a sauce pan on low heat and add the coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla powder and maple syrup. Mix for a minute until the coconut oil is fully melted and all the ingredients are well mixed together.
  5. When ready pour this mixture into the bowl with the almond flour and oats and mix well until all the dry ingredients are coated with the coconut maple mix.
  6. Leave this bowl aside, get ready to make the fruit layer.
  7. Peel all the apples and cut out the core. Then cut the apples into small cubes of about 1-2 cm.
  8. When you are done place all the apple cubes into a large saucepan together with the blackberries, maple syrup, vanilla powder and cinnamon. Before turning on the heat pour in a layer of 1 cm of boiling water, just enough to cover the bottom.
  9. Turn the heat on medium, cover it with the lid and let it simmer for about 15 min until all the fruit is nice and soft.
  10. Once your fruit is ready place them at the bottom of your baking dish, make sure not to transfer a lot of the liquid as you don’t want your crumble to become soggy.  Then add the crumble on top and spread it out nice and evenly.
  11. Place it in the oven for 20-25 min until the top is beautifully golden.

 

Now get stuck in while it’s still warm – it’s the best!

Vegan Chocolate Mousse

 

For any chocolate lover (like me) this is the ultimate recipe!

This chocolate mousse is so smooth, flavourful and if you are looking to satisfy your chocolate cravings then this is definitely the most healthy but also the most satisfying dessert you could ever make.

It may seem strange at first to be making chocolate mousse with avocado, but it actually gives the mousse a very smooth texture. All the other ingredients will also overpower the avocado flavour so I’m sure no one will even believe you have used avocado’s in the first place!

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1 banana 
  • 1 large avocado
  • 4 teaspoons cacao 
  • 80 ml almond milk 
  • 8 medjool dates
  • Pinch of salt 

 

Method

 

  1. First, pit your dates and soak them in boiling water for at least 10 min, so they get nice and soft. 
  2. Then place all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until everything is smooth. 
  3. Place your mixture into bowls and leave in the fridge to set. 
  4. When serving top of with a spoon of coconut yoghurt and sprinkle with cacao nibs.
