Paleo Recipes Dessert Fruit Crumble Recipe

This deliciously Autumnal fruit crumble recipe is from our Paleo Recipes Desserts Collection.

As the nights draw in here in the UK, and the evenings turn chilly, there is nothing more homely than the smell of apple and blackberry crumble in the oven.

Nature certainly knew what she was doing when she made these two fruits ready for harvest at the same time!

Our fruit crumble recipe is super simple to make, and you could easily throw it together after an afternoon's blackberrying.

Apple & Blackberry Crumble - Nutritional Info

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.

Blackberries on the other hand are something of a superfood, packing a great antioxidant punch in the form of the anthocyanins they contain in abundance - this is the chemical compound that gives them their glorious purple colour. They also offer vitamins C, E and K, as well as folate, magnesium, potassium, copper and manganese.

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

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas mark 4.
  2. Place the apples, blackberries, lemon juice and water in a pan and cook on a gentle heat for 10 - 15 minutes to soften the fruit.
