Between both our gardens, we have a lot of apples and pears that need to be eaten! We made this recipe for Ned’s birthday and it went down like a storm! Topped with a little vanilla ice-cream and we were winning!

5-Step Crumble

Make this apple, pear and blueberry recipe in just 5 steps. It's a great way to use any apples that you may have in your garden (or your neighbours!) We make this all throughout the year, and is always a hit with a big serving of vanilla ice-cream on top!

Takes 45 minutes

Serves 7


  • 200 g oats
  • 50 g desiccated coconut
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • handful of nuts
  • hand of seeds
  • 90 ml sunflower oil
  • 90 ml maple syrup
  • 1.5 kg apples/pears
  • 100 g frozen blueberries
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 8 tbsp water


  • Preheat the oven at 180℃.
  • Core and chop the apples/pears into bite-sized pieces leaving the skins on. Put them in a pot with the frozen blueberries and water and cinnamon.
  • Bring the fruit mixture to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Stirring occasionally, stew the fruit for about 20 mins or until all the fruit has properly broken down.
  • Thoroughly mix all the ingredients for the crumble together in a bowl including the oil. Once the fruit has stewed down, add it to your crumble dish and spread it out evenly (we used a 30cm ceramic dish).
  • Spread the crumble top evenly over the fruit and put in the preheated oven for about 25 mins at 180℃ or until the top of the crumble starts to go golden.
