Blackberry Crumble – gluten free, dairy free, no added sugar


Well, after our 3.5kg haul of blackberries on the weekend, it seemed only apt to kick off with a crumble.  As Mr MaMT is only allowed berries and no other fruit at the moment, his couldn’t include the obligatory apple filling – just blackberries – and the crumble topping was subtly sweetened only by goji berries.  Meanwhile, the rest of us had apple and blackberry crumble, sweetened with dates, though personally, I preferred the sugarless blackberry and goji option, but that’s just me.  #sugarfreeseptember

ImageAnyway, without further ado, here’s the recipe, with alternatives for a slightly sweeter version …

Fill TM bowl with:

  • 500g of water

Place into the Varoma dish, set in place on top of the bowl and then steam 5-10 mins / varoma / speed 1:

  •  a few big handfuls of blackberries (for apple version, use 5-6 sliced sweet apples and steam for 15 minutes – add some berries for the last 5 minutes of steaming, if you like)

Once softened/cooked, pour into a pyrex dish and set aside.

Pre-heat oven to 190 degs / 180 degs fan-forced.

Wash and dry the bowl.

Add to the clean bowl and whizz up 10 seconds / speed 9, then set aside for the moment:

  • 60g goji berries (if you’re not concerned with fructose, use 60g chopped dates or rapadura etc)

Add to the bowl and melt for 30 seconds / 60 degs / speed 4:

  • 60g coconut oil

Mix for 1 min / speed 4 until crumbly:

  • 100g gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp GF baking powder
  • 30g desiccated/shredded coconut
  • 60g milled goji berries (or other sweetener of choice)
  • Spread the crumble topping over the blackberries.
  • Cook in the oven at 190 degs or 180 degs ff, for 10 mins or so, or until browned on top.
  • Serve with your favourite GF/DF custard or ice cream, or simply cashew cream – leave out the dates for sugar free!
