Apple breakfast crumble


I tried a new breakfast recipe today.  This dish is healthy, simple  to make and is delicious.  The apple is poached and soaked in chia seeds.  The crumble is made from almond meals, crushed almonds, cashew nuts and desiccated coconut.


To Make the apple

4 red apples chopped

2½ cups water

½ cup chia seeds

½ tsp ground cinnamon


To Make the Crumble

1 cup almond meal

1 cup cashew nut

1 cup almond flakes

¼ cup desiccated coconut

½ tsp ground cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

¼ cup olive oil



To make the apple.

Add the water and chopped apples in a sauce pan over medium heat.  Cover with a lid and bring to boil.  Once it boils reduce and simmer for 2 minutes.

After two minutes put the heat off and add the chia seeds.  (Don’t spill the water, the chia seeds will absorb the water and the apple will continue browning if it’s still pale or white.)  Set aside.

To make the crumble

Preheat oven to 180ºC.

Line baking tray with non stick baking paper.

In a bowl add all the ingredients for the crumble and add the olive oil.  Mix until combined.  Pour mixture on the baking paper, making sure it is all flat.

Bake for 5-10 minutes or until golden brown.  Keep checking the crumble so that  it doesn’t burn.

Add 1 cup of the apple and 1 tbsp. of the crumble.  Enjoy
