Blueberry and Apple Crumble with Pecan topping

We have been so excited to use our new Pecan Flour in a number of dishes both sweet and savoury. Knowing that its nutty caramel flavour would pair beautifully with blueberry and apple we thought this would be a delicious recipe. Adding pecan oil to the crumble topping also enhanced the indulgent buttery crumb. Perfect for a cold winters evening! You can also substitute the dairy ingredients for dairy-free options if you want to make this dish vegan.

This Crumble is:

  • Gluten Free (if you use gluten free oats)
  • Rich in protein, fibre, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals
