Apple Brekky Crumble


5 Red Apples (625g), peeled, cored and thinly sliced

2 Green Pears (332g), peeled and thinly sliced

1/2 Fresh Lemon (50g), zest finely grated and juiced

4 Tablespoons Maple Syrup (80g)

1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon (2g)

1 Cup Rolled Oats (90g)

1/4 Cup Desiccated Coconut (20g)

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg (1g)

2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil (50g)

2 Cups Low Fat Natural Yoghurt (500g), or 2 Tablespoons per serve

15g Pepitas


  1. Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced. Thinly slice the apples and pears and place in a microwave safe container with lemon juice, zest and 1 tsp cinnamon. Microwave for approximately 3 mins to soften the fruit.
  2. Remove the fruit from the microwave and stir through 2 TBS maple syrup.
  3. Meanwhile, create the crumble top by combining the dry ingredients: coconut, oats, nutmeg, remaining cinnamon and pepitas in a small bowl.
  4. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 1 minute and stir through 2 TBS maple syrup. Drizzle this over the dry crumble mixture and stir through.
  5. Place softened fruit into a ceramic baking dish and then top with the crumble mixture.
  6. Bake 20 mins to create a golden crumble.
  7. Serve with 2 tbs of yoghurt.

Mish Tips

  • You can do this on a stovetop instead of a microwave. We’ve used the microwave to speed up the process.
  • Add a little water to the fruit when cooking if you like your fruit extra soft.
  • To speed up the process further, you can leave the skin on the fruit.
