Apple Crumble (with quinoa flakes)

DSCF1087 (2)DSCF1077

I was looking at two apples in the fruit bowl for a week now. Do I want to have an apple for a snack?  Hmm, I was kind of not in the mood for having “just an apple”, but then zap! I thought of apple crumble and 5 minutes later I was standing in the kitchen cooking 🙂
I just love this dessert/snack, it is so satisfying and delicious. Plus, you can always change the crumble by using different flakes/oats and different flours, nuts, dry fruit, marmalade or jam. Just use your imagination!

For the apple filling I used 2 tart apples (Boskoop) and 1 tbsp of browntop millet flour.
For the base of the crumble topping I used 1/3 cup quinoa flakes, 1/4 cup browntop millet flour, 1 tbsp coconut blossom sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 2 tbsp butter.

Before we start with the cooking, turn on the oven to 180° C/ 375° F and get four ramekins.

Peel and cut the apples into small pieces and mix them with 1 tbsp of the flour.
Rinse the quinoa flakes and mix them with the flour, melted butter and coconut blossom sugar. The mixture should not be dry, if so then melt and add more butter.
Divide the apple filling into the ramekins, then divide the topping too. I also added an extra topping – 2 tbsp of plum marmalade (a little bit for each of the ramekins).

Bake for 30′ in the middle of the oven.
Then leave it for 10′ to cool down and enjoy while warm.
If you are having it as a dessert you could serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This is definitely a dessert I am always looking forward to!!
