Dessert for breakfast: healthy crumble

Healthy breakfast crumble

I’m a morning sweet tooth. Bam. It’s out.

Basically that means that as soon as I wake up I crave a huge breakfast which preferably tastes sweet. Like, I’m down with eggs and bacon anytime, but I’ll love you eternally when you bring me pancakes in the morning.

So. We all know what tastes sweet. Desserts. And we all know the saying ‘eat dessert first’, right? Right. Well. What if I told you that you can start your entireΒ dang day with a dessert. And that’s not all: You ladies can start your day with a healthy dessert. Are you also crying from happiness thanks toΒ this discovery? I sure know I was. πŸ˜‰

Anyways, Crumble might be in my top 3 of all time favorite desserts. But stuffed with crappy flour and loads of sugar and greasy butter, it certainly won’t make my top 3 all time favorite healthy desserts. Enters this version. Totally breakfast appropriate. I fell in love. Obvi.

So, here we are. I’m going to make you one happy ass sweet tooth with this recipe. You are welcome!

You’ll need (serves one)

  • 40g rolled oats (from Quaker. I used gluten free ones)
  • 2 tbsp of buckwheat flour (or spelt flour, or coconut flour)
  • Some raisins
  • 1,5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey/agave (or sweetner of your choice)
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of stevia
  • an apple, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 100g frozen berries

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200Β°C.

Grease an oven bowl with some coconut oil. Add the fruit to the bowl.

Now mix the oats, raisins, buckwheat flour, coconut oil and maple syrup until you get a greasy, sticky mass. Or soon to be crumble.

Spread the crumble on top of the fruit in the bowl. (don’t mix it, it should be on top of your fruit)

Place the crumble in the oven for about 20 minutes (until the berries boil)

You can or can not add some yoghurt to this too. Just saying.

Enjoy!
