Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 3 cups feijoa flesh approximately 25-30 feijoas.
  • 1 tablespoon honey 15ml
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence 5ml
  • 75 g butter plus a little extra for greasing
  • 2 cups rolled oats 200g
  • ¼ cup brown sugar 50g
  • ¼ cup plain flour 40g
  • ½ cup almonds 75g

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  • Grease an oven proof dish with a little butter.
  • Roughly chop approximately 2-3 cups of feijoa flesh and pop it in the bottom of the greased oven proof dish.
  • Add vanilla and honey to the fruit and mix through.
  • In a food processor place the oats, almonds, flour, brown sugar and butter, blitz until you have a nice crumbly topping.
  • Top the fruit with the crumble topping, bake for approximately 20 mins until the feijoa crumble is golden and crunchy.
  • Serve with a little vanilla ice cream, cream, yoghurt or custard.

Notes

Tips

  • Don't skip greasing the baking dish with a little butter before adding the fruit. This isn't so much to stop the fruit sticking, what it does is create caramelised fruit juices, the combination of the fruit, butter, and a little honey adds yummy caramel flavours to the crumble.
  • Cook the crumble in the middle of the oven, don't use the top racks, otherwise, the crumble topping can cook more quickly than the fruit.

Substitutes

  • Honey: the honey can be substituted for maple syrup or a little sugar.
  • Feijoas: As this is a feijoa crumble I'd advise using at least some feijoas, but you can definitely combine the feijoas with stewed apples if you don't have quite enough feijoas.
  • Butter: This recipe will work with dairy-free margarine or coconut oil.
  • Flour: This can be substituted for any gluten-free flour if needed.
  • Brown sugar: This can be substituted for any granulated sugar.
  • Almonds: I love to add nuts to my crumble, I like the little bit of extra plant-based nutrition they add, you can sub them for any nuts, or leave them out if you wish.
