As we’re staying away from wheat in this family I’m often creating wheat-free recipes that don’t compromise on taste but are generally healthier for us all.
I love the marriage of apples and plums and although we limit sugar too, I like the medicinal properties of honey so add some in this recipe. Give me crumble and I’m happy. I actually learnt to make this during my GCSEs and baked as a stress-reliever.
Quick, easy to make with little fingers that love creating the crumble effect, this is perfect comfort food without the guilt! Enjoy!
