Woman, Make Me Dessert: The Fruit Basket Crumble

J is sick with the man-flu. Working with people all day every day means you’re going to get hit with whatever virus is going around…and he got hit pretty hard. So, despite the fact that I’ve just started Weight Watchers (more on that later), when he demanded dessert, I figured I should probably deliver (and let’s face it, I wanted dessert, too).

In case you’re wondering, the correct response to “Woman, make me dessert!” (after the four-letter words are used up) is:
Fruit Basket Crumble

4 cups fruit (I used apple, pear, peach and strawberries)
1 tablespoon white flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1-inch piece of ginger, grated (or 1 tsp ground ginger)

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

In a greased 9×9 baking pan, mix together fruit, 1 tbsp flour, white sugar and grated ginger. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, oats, brown sugar, coconut oil and coconut until crumbly. Sprinkle over the fruit. Bake at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes, or until the topping is brown and toasty and the fruit is softened.

This would be awesome with ice cream – we didn’t have any in the house, and I wasn’t about to run to the store. But pick some up – it’ll be worth it.

  1. We, DD & I, made a similar version of this the other night… But mine was without gluten and refined sugars… Beautiful balance of tart apples and raspberries and sweet crumble…

  2. I love seeing all your recipes this fruit crumble looks delicious. I just might have to use this recipe to use up some of the fruit I have in my fridge. Keep the yummy recipes coming!
