APPLE CRUMBLE- For The Healthy Souls

I absolutely detest the rains. There’s nothing about this season that makes me feel good. All I can think of when I hear the word ‘rain’ is muddy water, gloominess and traffic jams. Nothing nice about that right?

So it’s days like these, I go drown my sorrows in the kitchen and whip up comforting food.

The first thing that comes to mind when I’m lazing around on a chilly Sunday afternoon is a humble apple pie. Sweet, light and flaky, there’s nothing you cannot like about this dish. But I prefer eating the more fun version of it which is the apple crumble.

Apple crumbles are simple yet sophisticated dishes that seem to have originated during the second World War. It was invented to replace it’s main rival- Apple Pie. But over the years, both have gained popularity without letting down one another.

There is a silly myth telling us that crumbles are to be baked only in winters which I completely disagree to. Feeling low and need something to pep you up? Bake a crumble and you’ll feel alive again!

Inspired by Jamie Oliver’s recipe, I tried recreating a more healthier version of this classic British dish. It still contains some amount of butter but I’ve used whole wheat flour, brown sugar, honey and oats so I can’t think of this getting any more healthy. And it’s a dessert after all, so just enjoy!

This perfectly toasted crumble topping with a gooey, fruity center, makes it too hard to resist especially if you love all things sugary.

You can serve it warm with a dollop of whipped cream, or cold with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. I love eating it straight from the pan!

Do try it out and if you enjoyed digging into this humble, tummy-rumbling crumble, let me know in the comments below. You can also follow me for daily food stories on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat (msyumtum)
