Strawberry and Coconut Crumble

Crumble weather arrived back in Sydney this week, so I made a Strawberry Crumble on the weekend and each night we’ve been comforted by the rich, sticky strawberries topped with a toasty, tasty crust. It’s delicious served with cream, ice-cream or custard.

And yes, it’s my third crumble recipe on the blog so you could say #addicted

But seriously, I reckon it’s just about one of the healthiest dessert you can make, full of wholesome, real food ingredients like oats, butter, desiccated coconut, strawberries and just a small amount of natural sugar.

And it’s great for breakfast, dessert and what a lovely little surprise it makes in the kiddies lunchboxes.

If you’re looking for more recipe inspiration, take a look at my new recipe ebook which is getting rave reviews, Easy Wholefood Lunchboxes.

It’s packed with 40 delicious nut-free, refined sugar free sweet and savoury recipes which have all been kid-tested and approved!
