Healthy Coconut and Apple Crumble

 

coconut and apple crumble-Honest Mum
As those who follow my blog know, I’m well and truly back on the low carb, healthy eating band wagon after a summer of pure carb loving (and I’m now 8 pounds heavier) and can’t zip up my jeans! At least I have something to motivate (and I do love my Topshop Jamie jeans)..

I’m still eating carbs but slow releasing whole food carbs like oats and sweet potatoes in moderation and lots of low sugar fruit and veg.

This recipe for my healthy coconut and apple crumble is a delicious treat, full of goodness without compromising on flavour! And I think you might just LOVE it!

I use honey as adore its medicinal properties and the cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar.

    I really like the sound of that! I am on the same ‘diet’ as you…but not to loose weight, just to be more healthy after reading a book called Grain Brain! Being a big fan of coconut oil I would probably use that instead of the margarine but that is because I don’t have cholestorol problems. Lovely recipe. Thanks!

      Ooh I must get that book, I think this is a ‘diet’ I will always live by for good health. I want to lose some weight but I want to feel at my fittest. Yes coconut oil works well, I just found I needed some margarine for the texture too x
