Refined Sugar-Free Strawberry & Rhubarb Crumble


So I guess I’m still gently easing myself back into blogging…or blogging is gently easing itself back into my life. It’s been a while since my ‘sugar-free’ detox celebrations blog but I’m still living free from the white stuff and feeling great!

Here’s a recipe I’ve been developing for our family meal table; we don’t eat dessert often but there’s nothing quite like a fruit crumble on a Sunday afternoon – so here’s my take on it!


2oz Spelt flour

2oz Buckwheat flour

4oz oats

4oz Butter or coconut oil (or 2oz of each)

2tbsp chia or flax seeds (optional)

2tbsp rice malt syrup (add after fat mixed into flour)

Method: Rub the butter/coconut oil into the flour oat mix till it kind of resembles breadcrumbs then stir in 2tbsp of rice malt syrup


1 1/2 cups of strawberries chopped in half

1 1/2 cups of chopped rhubarb

Method: chop fruit and place in a deep pie dish (that’s it, easy huh?!)

Place crumble topping on top of the fruit and press down gently. Put dish in oven, gas mark 5 for 20 – 30 mins until crumble topping is golden brown and fruit juices are bubbling through.

Serve warm with cream and get ready for yummy noise all around the table!

Let me know if you make it – enjoy!
