apple and blueberry flapjack crumble
23rd February 2017 Katie

A crunchy flapjack topping, hiding a soft and fruity apple and blueberry base.  I love a traditional apple crumble, so when I embarked on this recipe, that was the original plan.  We had friends coming over, and I had reserved the last of the apples from our garden, but too late, I realised that I only had enough for about half the recipe.  Having to improvise, I used up a packet of blueberries that I had in the freezer.  So now, as it wasn’t very traditional,  I thought I’d change the topping too.

It was so worth it.  For a start, there’s no rubbing in required, you mix the topping together in a saucepan.  When it’s baked, the topping turns into a crunchy flapjack, and the mixture of fruits below compliments it perfectly.

I am keen to avoid too much sugar, more so because one of my guests is a Type 1 diabetic.  By using dessert apples, there is no need to add sugar to the base, and the topping has 50g refined sugar per 4 servings.  It was clearly sweet enough as my little guests ranging in age from 4 – 10 years all had seconds!  This is still a treat, but well worth it.

Instructions
  1. Begin by peeling, coring and chopping the apples into bite size pieces. Place into a saucepan with 3 tablespoons of water, and bring to a simmer. Cook for 3-5 minutes until tender.
  2. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/GM5. Place the cooked apples in an oven-proof fairly shallow dish. Top with the blueberries.
  3. In a large pan, melt the coconut oil, rapeseed oil and sugar until all melted together, but do not boil. Add in the porridge oats and rice flour, and mix together to form a sticky combination.
  4. Take spoonfuls of the mixture and dot all over the apple and blueberry mixture, so it is all covered. Place in the oven for 35-45 minutes, depending how quickly your oven cooks. It should be dark brown and crispy when ready.
  5. Serve immediately on it's own, or with your favourite cream.
