The recipe is for two but easily scales up for a family meal. Cook in individual ramekins or suitable oven-proof dish.
Best Flaxjacks to use for Fruit Crumbles?
If you just have a single variety of fruit to cook, the Fruit and Berry Flaxjacks are a great addition. You can mix the Flaxjacks or add in a Triple Ginger Flaxjack to Bronze Original for a really warming winter pudding.
- Bronze Original
- Golden Vanilla
- Cranberry, Apple and Cinnamon
- Triple Ginger
- Low Sugar Vanilla
- Apricot and Pumpkin Seed
- Mixed Berry
- Quinoa Gooey Date
- Apples – Bramleys are my favourite but any will do – add any Berries, especially Blackcurrants or Blackberries, Raspberries or Strawberries are good too.
- Peaches or Nectarines – try adding Blueberries
- Berries – any mix of berries fresh or frozen
- Frozen smoothie mixes
- Rhubarb – with or without Berries – great with a few Strawberries
- 250 grams of bramley apple (Other varieties of apple work well too if cut into fairly small pieces)
- 120 grams of frozen berries
- 60 ml of water
- 2 x Golden Vanilla Flaxjacks (Other flavours of Flaxjacks are just as good)
- Stevia or other sweetener to taste (Sweetening power of equivalent of about 2-3 teaspoons of sugar)
- Defrost the Berries.
- Core and chop the Apple, I prefer to leave the peel on especially if they are Organic or homegrown.
- Place Apple and water in a suitable container. Cook. for approximately 4 minutes in the microwave or 10 minutes in a saucepan or until cooked – varies according to the variety of apple. Remove from heat.
- Add Berries and Stevia or other sweetener and spoon into ovenproof dishes.
- Crumble the Flaxjacks, either by hand, dice into small pieces with a knife or put them in a food processor (especially if frozen) and whiz until they look like coarse breadcrumbs. Then place evenly over fruit.
- Cook at 180C for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown – depends on the variety of Flaxjack and type of fruit – don’t overcook.
If cooking in ramekins they tend to cook quicker.
Alternatively microwave for 4-5 minutes depending on power of microwave.
- Leave to cool for a few minutes and serve as is or with Custard, Cream, or Yoghurt.
Feel free to adjust the quantities of fruit to whatever you have available. Substitute extra Apple if you don’t have any Berries or make the whole thing from just Berries instead of using Apple.
