Crumble in a food processor
ADD 1½ cups oats – and blitz into flour. ADD coconut oil | butter, sugar, maple, vanilla, salt + spices. BLITZ until well combined and beginning to create a thick crumble mixture.

BAKING DISH – ADD sliced rhubarb + raisins with apples and stir well to combine. Scatter blueberries over the top and spread fruit evenly in the dish.
ADD crumble topping over fruit scattering and spreading with a fork into an even layer.
BAKE 35 – 45 mins until the fruit is cooked and crumble is golden on top.
SERVE hot, warm or cold. SERVE as is or with yoghurt, cream, ice cream or mascarpone.
* BUTTER | COCONUT OIL – use 4 to 5 tbsp, up to 6 tbsp = depends on taste + texture you like and how much fat content you want.
APPLES – do not peel – the skin is good for you, and the food processor does a great job of chopping up the apples in seconds.
SWAP maple syrup for fruit jam in crumble = ¼ cup jam + 1 tbsp water.
SWAP pumpkin seeds + pecan for sunflower seeds or nuts like walnuts, hazelnuts, or skip altogether.
FREEZING RHUBARB – I have successfully frozen sliced rhubarb and used it in a dish like this in the winter months.
