No-Bake, Oaty Apple Crumble - Izy Hossack - Top With Cinnamon
Doing the giveaway post with E.ON a few day ago (which you should totally go enter if you haven’t already!) got me thinking about no-bake recipes. Sometimes it’s just so much more convenient and economical to not have to turn on the oven. The problem with no-bake desserts is that they’re usually not only ‘no-bake’ but completely the opposite of baked. They’re cold. In Leeds it’s regularly staying below the 10ºC mark so cold desserts are not what I want right now. I’m all for eating pancakes/French toast as dessert but I wanted to come up with something different. Lord knows I already have enough pancake recipes on here! I started thinking about my stove-top granola recipe from my book and how it’s kind of like crumble topping. Pairing that with some softly spiced & sautéed apples sounded like the perfect wintery dessert. So I tweaked my granola recipe to make it more like a crumble topping, tossing in some mixed seeds for extra crunch. I was rewarded with this glowy bowl of comfort.
