Mini fruit crumbles
with a healthier crumble topping
I experimented a little bit with the topping for these mini fruit crumbles. As you’ll see, I’ve kept it simple, (as is my mantra) yet still yummy.
If you’re short on time, you can make them even quicker and easier by using muesli or granola.
As far as fruit goes, you can use whatever you like in these crumbles.
I find frozen berries are the most versatile, as they can be mixed with pretty much any other fruit. And it’s so easy to use them straight from the freezer.
Peaches, apples and pears work well, and if you slice or grate them very finely then there’s no need to pre cook them. Just add them straight to your ramekins in layers with the berries.

These mini fruit crumbles are pretty versatile. You can serve them with a dollop of cream or ice cream for dessert. They’re also a great healthy breakfast, served with Greek yoghurt.
I also love these crumbles as a healthy dessert option at holiday times like Easter, or any get together, really!
Make these crumbles as part of your weekend meal prep, and you’ll have some healthy desserts on hand in the freezer to grab anytime.
