There isn’t really a story behind this recipe. Except that I love apple crumble. And I’d eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could.
I was pondering this the other day and thought ‘well why not?’. So I pulled out all the ingredients I’d usually use in an apple crumble, and got to concocting in the usual quick-fire Dear Mummy way. And it worked! So now I CAN eat apple crumble – maybe not all day long, but certainly any time of the day or night (case in point: I’ve just had 2 now, while the kids play in the bath, prolonging bedtime as per).
These are best served with a dollop of marscapone, I think. That’s how I’ll be having my ‘one for luck’ later tonight.
Apple crumble balls
1 cup grated apple
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup oats
4 Medjool dates, roughly chopped
2 desert spoons psyllium husk
2 desert spoons nut butter (I used My Nut Butter’s CinnamoNut flavour – so if you use a plain nut butter I’d suggest adding a tsp cinnamon to your ball mix)
2 desert spoons runny honey
Add all ingredients into a food processor and blitz until fully mixed
Mix together equal portions (around 2 desert spoons) desiccated coconut and coconut sugar, plus 1 tsp cinnamon
Roll balls to coat
Store in the fridge and enjoy often! xx
