Sometimes I crave something comforting and warm in the mornings. This is the perfect healthy, comforting and fruit-filled breakfast. And this is what you’ll need:
(makes about 4 helpings)
1 small cup of muesli
1 dollop of vegan butter / margarine
1 tsp of sugar if you’re feeling crazy
Start off by setting the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5 then start chopping up the fruit into small chunks. Add to a frying pan with some lemon juice and a sprinkle of brown sugar. When I have a spare minute, I pick the raisins out of the muesli and add them in too. While the fruit is softening in the pan throw the walnuts into a food processor or crunch them up yourself in a pestle and mortar.
Once you have fairly small walnut pieces / powder, you can mix them in with the muesli and a small amount of butter, just enough to bind it. By this time the fruit should be soft, sweet and slightly caramelized. Place the warm fruit in ramekins or any other small or large oven-proof pots you have. Fill to the top, then start adding the muesli mixture until all fruit is covered. Place in the oven for 35 – 45 minutes et voilà! You have yourself wonderful sweet and warm apple and pear crumble. Great for a luxurious breakfast or for brunch with friends. Enjoy!
