Apple Rhubarb Crumble

img_7648  Gorgeous.

This Apple Rhubarb crumble recipe was born out of being inspired by some fresh rhubarb at the organic markets. I had no idea how to use rhubarb or what it tasted like until I made this. After being keto for 6 months without fruit (except berries) I was ready to introduce fruit again in a spectacular way.

Coming into the winter months in Australia, (although we are blessed with weather and can barely call it a grizzly winter) – I’ve accepted the fact that I’m a traditional Aussie gal built for the summer sun.

While I’m waiting for summer playtime, Winter is an opportunity to deeply nourish nutritionally and I spend hours in the kitchen playing around with ingredients.

This apple Crumble would probably suit a 15- 17cm cake dish, but you can customise the ingredients depending on the size of your oven proof dish.




1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

2 Fresh rhubarb sticks – chopped

4 red delicious apples – chopped

2 tablespoons of Butter

2 teaspoons of Xylitol


6 heaped tablespoons of Almond Meal

2 tablespoons of Coconut flour

1/2 – 1 teaspoon of honey for flavour

3/4 teaspoon of Cinnamon

3 tablespoons of melted butter

Garnish – Optional – Coconut yoghurt plain and/or toasted coconut flakes.



Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius

Step 1 : To make the base, begin by melting 2 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan on medium heat.

Step2: Once the butter is melted on medium heat, add the chopped apples, rhubarb, cinnamon, vanilla and xylitol. Stir occasionally until the apple softens.

Step 3: Pour the base ingredients into your oven proof dish to form an even base

Step 4: Make the crust by mixing 6 heaped tablespoons of almond meal, 2 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1 teaspoon of honey, 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, 3 tablespoons of melted butter – mix with clean hands to really combine the ingredients and put some love in there. 😉

Step 5: Sprinkle the crust on the top of the base, layer evenly.

Step 6: Place in the oven. You’ll know it’s done once the top has a light golden brown crust.

Enjoy with coconut yoghurt plain or toasted coconut flakes.. but it’s so yummy on it’s own it needs neither!
