180g Porridge oats
100g Walnuts, chopped
3 tbsp gluten free flour (I've used rice flour)
100ml Maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
3 large seasonal comice pears, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks
3/4 large apples peeled, cored and cut into small chunks
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp water
Juice of 1 lemon
A pinch of cinnamon
Pre-heat the oven to 190C/ fan 170C / gas 5. Melt the coconut oil in small pan and add the maple syrup and cinnamon. Put the oats, flour and walnuts in a bowl and add in the oil mixture and mix together.
Put the chopped fruit into a pan with the lemon juice, water and maple syrup and cinnamon. Simmer gently until the fruit has slightly softened, this should be around ten minutes. When it is done tip the fruit into a baking dish then sprinkle over the crumble. topping.
Bake for 20 minutes and the crumble topping is golden.
