Does Spring make you feel like eating berries yet? It does for me, I can’t wait! If you are the same, maybe you want to make this delicious healthy raspberry and apple crumble? Here in the UK it is too early for fresh (local) raspberries, but you can always find them in the freezer and that is perfectly good enough for something cooked like this crumble.
You can put it together really quickly, it just needs a while in the oven (1 hour), so you will need to get up early if you want to make it for breakfast unless you make it the night before. If you are not an early riser, you may prefer to have it as an afternoon snack anyway, with a cup of tea. In the morning it works well with some yoghurt, in the afternoon, you might want to add a little scoop op ice-cream as a treat.
This recipe is so easy that the hardest thing you need to do is peeling the apples and possibly chopping up the nuts. So you can definitely ask the kids for help with this one or even delegate completely!
