Spoonie Zoe, who is a passionate runner and traveller, loves to indulge in not so naughty desserts. Whilst her and her boyfriend were looking for something they could make and enjoy together Zoe came up with the idea of making her own crumble recipe. Going through her fridge and cupboards she found everything she needed and came up with a delicious Chocolate Cherry Crumble recipe. Yum!

INGREDIENTS:

Base

  • 750g Cherries (a mixture of sweet and sour is ideal)

  • 10ml Water

  • 20g Coconut Sugar

  • 1tbsp Cornflower

  • juice of half a lemon

Topping

METHOD:

In a saucepan, mix and heat the cherries, coconut sugar and water.

Bring to boil then lower the heat and let it simmer for ten minutes

In a small cup, mix together the cornflower and the lemon juice until it becomes a paste

While stirring, slowly add the cornflower mixture to the cherries to allow them to thicken slightly

As soon as the cherry syrup starts to thicken a little, remove from the heat and transfer to a baking dish

In a mixing bowl add the Cherry and Chocolate granola, the maple syrup and the oats to form a sticky and chunky combination

Scatter loosely on top of the cherries

Bake at 180 degrees for 20-25 mins

Serve with coconut yoghurt or double cream

Spoonie tip: as the granola is already baked it doesn’t need a long time in the oven, its more to heat it up all together and slightly brown the uncooked oats with the maple syrup
