Will Run For Berry Lemon Crumble




Some people run (bike & swim) for crumble.  Other people run for Duncan Hinds chocolate icing. 

 It turns out that I wasn't the only person that needed some crumble at the end of the weekend.  The week of midterms may not be the time to ask your favourite 3/8 nurse for medical advice unless of course you are wondering if there is a difference between Aspirin & Advil (three weeks on maternity and you too will have this mastered.  Or you could just read the bottle).

  Who knew that nursing students were icing connoisseurs? 
 There is clearly a difference between Betty Crocker & Duncan Hinds icing. 
 Idiot.
 They needed crumble.      

apple butter and lemon extract make everything better


quinoa flakes might be the new oatmeal

out of the oven and into my belly

nursing students need more crumble

Berry Lemon Crumble

(serves 4)

*1/2 C quinoa flakes
1/4 C oats (not instant)
1/4 C ground almonds/almond flour
*2 T coconut oil
2 T organic sugar
2 large gala apples peeled and diced
1 1/2 C frozen blueberries
1/2 C frozen cranberries
3 T applebutter
*1/4 tsp lemon extract

Preheat oven to 350. 

In a small bowl combine quinoa flakes, oats, ground almonds, coconut oil and organic sugar.  Using your hands combine until large crumbs form.

In a large bowl combine apples, blueberries, cranberries, applebutter and lemon extract.

Place 1-2 T of crumb mixture in the bottom of four 2 cup oven safe ramekins.  Divide berry mixture evenly amongst ramekins and then top with remaining crumb mixture.  Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until apples are tender and crumb mixture begins to brown.

*The quinoa flakes, coconut oil and lemon extract really make this recipe so if they aren't already in your cupboard they are definately worth a trip to the grocery store.
