This tropical and fruity blackberry and pineapple crumble is the perfect summertime recipe. Bubbling fruits topped with a beautiful golden and crunchy nut low carb crumble. While pineapple isn't usually considered for traditional crumbles, the sweetness of the fruit paired with the sharpness of the blackberries makes for a truly wonderful dish and in all honestly, it's probably one of my favourite summertime desserts.
- Pineapple chunks (220g)
- Blackberries (225g)
- Chia seeds (1 tbsp)
- Stevia (2 tbsp)
- Coconut sugar (2 tbsp)
- Lemon (1, juice only)
- Sea salt (1 pinch)
- Cinnamon (1 tsp)
- Ground almonds (110g)
- Desiccated coconut (or flakes) (30g)
- Butter (60g)
Begin by preheating your oven to 175c (fan) or 195c (conventional).
In a small saucepan, heat 10g of your butter until melted and add the pineapple along with the chia seeds, stevia and a pinch of salt. Simmer on medium heat until softened.
Add the blackberries and lemon for a further 2-3 minutes and then pour your fruit mixture into a suitably sized baking tray.
To make your crumble, add the ground almonds, coconut flakes, cinnamon and coconut sugar to a bowl and mix. Add the rest of the butter and gently rub throughout the base. Once your crumble is combined (it's ok to have a few lumps as this adds to the texture), pour the crumble over the fruit and evenly spread it out. I like to leave the sides untouched a little to let the juices from the fruit overflow.
Pop your tray in the middle of the oven and bake until golden - roughly 35-40 minutes. Once the crumble is golden and your fruit is bubbling, remove from the oven and serve.
