Apple, Rhubarb & Ginger Crumble

When the weather gets cold I crave hearty and warming dishes. This crumble is perfect for a cold winter’s night, the added kick of fresh ginger makes this crumble extra warming. Ginger is a terrific anti-inflammatory food, it increases blood circulation and is great for digestion. I’ve sweetened this crumble with a small amount of coconut palm sugar, if you’re avoiding sugar then you can certainly leave this out as the apples add enough sweetness. The crumble mixture contains a combination of coconut flour, buckwheat flour, almonds and seeds. Don’t worry too much if you don’t have all the seeds, just use what you have in your pantry, pepitas would be lovely in this!

Happy sprouting, baking and cooking!
