Apple & nectarine crumble




Summer is approaching and stone fruit season is here!!  If you do manage to make it home with still a few unconsumed nectarines, I highly recommend making a crumble. I wanted to make a summer recipe using fresh nectarines, apples and an easy oat and almond topping. For the filling, I used nectarines and apples.I tossed them with cinnamon, cardamon, ginger, coconut oil and vanilla. I like to make crumbles with little added sugar, relying on the fruit for sweetness .While I used nectarine, peach would work equally well.If you prefer the traditional apple crumble, you can try my apple crumble recipe.  Serve this warm with a scoop of ice cream, custard or greek yogurt. Either way this crumble is an irresistible summer treat!



The apples/ nectarine:

4 large red apples

2 ripe nectarines

1 tbsp cane sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1 / 2 tsp cardamom

½ tsp vanilla extract.

½  dried ginger

1,5 tsp coconut oil


The crumble

140 gram rolled gluten free oats

1 tbsp desiccated coconut.

2 tbsp butter ( or coconut oil for a vegan option).

3 tbsp honey



¼ cup  almond( chopped)

1 tsp  cane sugar.



  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degress C.
  2. Core and dice the apples and nectarine place then in a medium sized casserole dish. Sprinkle the apples and necatrines with sugar, coconut oil, cinnamon, ginger, cardamon and vanilla extract.
  3. Place in oven for about 30 minutes or until the apples/ nectarines are soft and mushy.  turn the apples/nectarines from time to time.
  4. Meanwhile make the crumble-  place all oats, coconut, coconut oil, butter and honey in a bowl. Combine the ingredients with your hand to crumbles.
  5. Chop the almonds.
  6. Sprinkle the crumble over the apples and top with almonds and sugar. Bake for another 15 minutes.

  1. This looks so yummy. I like using essential oils in my cooking. I just use a drop instead of a half teaspoon or even just dipping a toothpick into essential oils. Wow!
