Apple & Blueberry Crumble

A healthier Apple crumble?! Oh yes!

Your guests wont know what hit them with this sweet tasting dessert!

I added blueberries to the good old fashioned favourite and swapped up ingredients to make it low sugar (very low) and a lot less calories with all the goodness of healthier ingredients.

Apple & Blueberry Crumble


  • 6 medium apples, washed, peeled and stewed, cheat: tin 100% apples no added sugar)
  • 3/4 tin blueberries (500g can or can use fresh just warm up or squash slightly with fork)
  • 1/4 cup 100% apple juice
  • 2 tsp organic vanilla essence
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (1 for apple mix, 1/2 for crumble)
  • 1 1/2 cups dry rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbl maple syrup (sugar free or natural)
  • 2 tbl extra virgin olive oil




Wash the apples.
Cut into wedges or dice with the skin left on – make sure to remove the centre.

Place the apples into a large heavy based pot.
Combine with the apple juice or water, vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon.

Cook over a medium heat for about 15 – 20 minutes – stirring occasionally until the apples have completely softened and collapsed. Taste them and adjust level of cinnamon etc.


Combine rolled oats, coconut, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup and olive oil then rub ingredients together with your fingers to combine.

Preheat your oven to 160 C. Fan forced.

Pile your apple mixture into a suitable sized baking dish mixing with blueberries.

Scatter the crumble over the top.

Bake for 30 – 40 minutes or until the crumble is golden.

Remove from the oven and serve with thick Greek style yoghurt. Or as your weekly treat, a dollop of whipped cream, light custard and sprinkle with cocoa.

You can choose any added fruit with the apple however remember to add the juice or a touch of water if not from a can as it will need to be moist.
