RHUBARB & APPLE CRUMBLE – RECIPE

 

Looking for something simple, tasty, and a little bit different for desert this winter?

I remember my mum making this dish when I was young and it was my favourite! I have ‘modernised’ it a little though to make it a little healthier

Ingredients;

  • 10 stalks of rhubarb
  • 6 apples
  • ½ cup oats
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup self-raising flower
  • 2tbs butter
  • Cinnamon.

For extra taste, and if you’re a health nut then buy these ingredients organic or from the local farmers market. Grass fed butter is a great alternative to standard butter too

 

Cooking Instructions; 

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees
  2. Chop the rhubarb up into 3-4cm pieces. Peel and chop the apples
  3. Put the rhubarb in pan with ½ cup water. You need to stir it so it doesn’t stick to the bottom, as rhubarb is stringy when it’s cooked
  4. Once its softened a bit, put the apple in with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Stir until its cooked and mixed in together
  5. Mix the flour, coconut sugar, oats together in a bowl. Add 2tbs melted butter and mix it together with your hands until it’s an even consistency
  6. Pour the rhubarb and apple mix into a backing dish. Top it with the oat mix
  7. Put it in the oven for 35-40mins. You will know its ready when its crunchy on top

Serves 4 people

Keen to hear if anyone tries it!

 

Kale Chips

Kale Chips

I don’t usually like kale but since it’s packed with good nutrients I figured I would give these a try

I was surprised because they actually weren’t that bad! Here is how you make them;

  1. Wash the kale and leave it till its dry (if it’s wet when you put it in the oven you’ll steam it). I used purple and green kale for these
  2. Cut it up into bite-sized pieces, make sure you cut the thick stems out
  3. Put in a bowl and put some olive oil, 1 tablespoon is enough, and sprinkle some salt (use the salt sparingly, as they seem to absorb a lot). I used Himalayan rock salt since it’s actually good for you. Then mix it all up so they’re nicely coated
  4. Put it on an oven tray covered in baking paper and bake for 15mins at 175 degrees (in my oven), or wait till a bit brown and crispy
  5. Wait until they cool down, then eat them

There are some potato chips in there too, made from shaved pieces of white and sweet potato

Enjoy!
