Rhubarb Crumble - Nutritional Info

Rhubarb contains compounds called polyphenols which are reputed to help destroy cancer cells - what is so great is that these are 'activated' when baked in the oven! 

Apples are renowned for keeping the doctor away - probably because they are a good source of vitamin C. Overall though they are natures candy bar and don't have an awful lot of goodness, other than the vit C of course.

Pumpkin seeds make up the bulk of the crumble and they are a good provider of protein, magnesium and zinc.
