My healthy breakfast crumble uses freshly cooked apples and blackberries with an oaty, nutty topping and is the perfect Sunday breakfast treat. It's wheat-free and contains no unhealthy fats or added sugar.
I like to cook the fruit the night before and then all I have to do in the morning is prep the topping. If you're a sucker for apple crumble and ice-cream this is the ideal healthy alternative. Enjoy it served hot with some frozen yoghurt on the side as a guilt-free dessert.
Apples and blackberries are ripe for picking at the moment and this recipe is perfect for putting picked fruit to good use.
I used freshly picked blackberries and apples from the garden which gave this particular breakfast crumble a special touch :)
