Crunchy oat crumble

Love crumble occasionally but want to give it a healthier twist as well as making it in less than 30 mins?

This one uses porridge oats so it skips some fat calories (err forgetting the cream…) and has lots of goodness from fruit and oats.
Serves: 6 • Prep: 10 mins • Easy 
  • 300g porridge oats
  • 80g sugar. Just sugar, no newfangled pretend sugar. Don’t get panicky, if you eat a generally low sugar diet I promise you will live through this crumble!
  • quarter to half a teaspoon of salt
  • fruit such as cooking apples, rhubarb or plums – this one used plums
Cook the fruit in a small amount of water to just cover the bottom of the pan. Add sugar if it needs it.

Heat a frying pan to hot hot and add the oats, salt and sugar. Keep moving them loads, and stirring so they never get a chance to sit. I take them off the heat every so often and stir, then return to heat. They’ll go a bit glutinous then crunchy. Stay with them or they’ll burn!

Place the fruit into a serving dish then top with oats. Serve with cream or FAGE Total Greek yoghurt.

Now that definitely calls for a run! :-p In fact this is fab post-long-run food.
Nutrition info
Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!
