3 apples, cored and chopped
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp honey
150g porridge oats
50g ground almonds
35g unsalted butter, diced
400g frozen berries


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C.

2. Place the apples in a medium-sized crumble dish, sprinkle with the cinnamon and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the honey. Add 2 tablespoons of water and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

3 Meanwhile, put the oats, ground almonds and remaining honey into a bowl. Add the butter and rub well with your fingertips until you have a crumbly mixture. You could do this step in a food processor.

4. Add the frozen berries to the dish with the apples and scatter the crumble topping over the fruit. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes, until the top is golden and the fruit is bubbling below.

5. Serve with Greek yoghurt, if your calorie allowance permits.
