I don’t know about you but a hot, sweet, fruity crumble paired with smooth banana ice cream will do me any night of the week … or breakfast for the matter if you’re following the Livias Kitchen trend! Jack, weirdly, is not a fan of crumbles but that just makes it an even better dessert for me to cook because I get to enjoy all the results!

If you’re looking for a healthy dessert to make that’s easy, ‘fancy’ and absolutely delicious at the same time – these crumbles are exactly that!

The healthy crumble topping is a crunchy sweet mixture of toasted oats, almonds and coconut and is better than any other sugar-filled pre-packaged crumble mix!

The banana ice-cream is the simplest of simple when it comes to the recipe; “blend frozen bananas” (winner).

And the crumble isn’t too far behind! The plums and pears go really well together here, giving sweetness and texture at the same time.

We’re off to see X-men tonight … one of these is totally coming with me. #Don’tJudge

Enjoy! LLG X
