Serves 4

Plums are in season just now so treat yourself to a crumble. 

4 large organic plums
2 organic apples
1 tbsp lemon juice
100g spelt flour
50g organic raw virgin coconut oil
4 teaspoons stevia or to taste
50g oats
6-8 pecan nuts

·        Wash and quarter the plums, peel, core and slice the apples.  Gently poach the fruit with 1 tbsp lemon juice until soft. 
·        Mix the spelt flour, stevia and oats.  Add the coconut oil and rub in until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.  Stir in pecan nuts.
·        Place the fruit in an ovenproof dish, sprinkle over crumble mixture and bake at 200 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
·        Serve with natural yogurt or blend 4 frozen bananas with some soya milk sweetened with apple juice to make a ‘banana ice cream’

Why this is healthy
As well as adding a subtle coconut flavour, coconut oil has many health benefits see
Oats lower cholesterol and so have benefits for the cardiovascular system and help stabilise blood sugar. 
Plums and apples provide antioxidants especially vitamin C and fibre for a healthy digestive system.
Pecans provide a source of vitamin E, also an antioxidant which is also good for healthy cell membranes
