My Favourite Healthy And Delicious Apple And Blackberry Crumble Recipe – Blogmas Day 9

Perfectly easy for any beginner to make, somewhat healthy and beyond tasty, this apple and blackberry crumble has to be next on your list to try.

I got this recipe from BBC Food, and it’s a definite must try!



  • 900g apples
  • 350-400g blackberries (I used frozen)
  • 175g demerara sugar
  • 2 lemons


  • 225g plain flour
  • 175g butter
  • 55g demerara sugar
  • 125g muesli or oat and nut mixture (I used rolled oats and some blended granola)


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius/Gas 6/400 Fahrenheit
  2. Peel the apples before cutting them into small chunks. Cut the lemons in half and squeeze the juice of the lemons over the apples and mix well (I found it easier to mix with my hands)
  3. Using a large dish (we used a lasagne dish), layer the apples, blackberries and sugar. I ended up mixing the lot inside the dish so everything was covered in sugar and the fruit was mixed well.
  4. Place the flour in a large bowl and rub in the butter until it comes to a breadcrumb-type mixture. To be honest, it’s probably easier to blend this all together, as it’s quite time-consuming by hand. If you want your crumble topping not as fine, leave a few lumps of butter in the mixture. Add the oat mixture and the sugar and mix all together.
  5. Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly on the fruit before baking for 45 minutes. The fruit should be cooked and bubbling juices should seep through (ours was on the top). Our topping was a nice golden brown colour.
  6. Cool for a few minutes then serve!

Let me know if you try this! Thanks for reading x
