Favourite Bakes Thursdays – Fruit Crumble

Good afternoon!

I’ve just figured out that I posted my yesterday’s Mofo post as a page rather than a post.  Doh.  I’ll save it for next week’s WIAW.


Back to today, I have a great crumble recipe to share.  Everyone needs a good crumble recipe in their collection, and even though I have 2 other ones, this one is my new favourite one.  The coconut oil and light brown sugar give the crumble topping a richness that reminds me of flapjacks.

Plum and Pear Coconut Crumble


5 plums, roughly chopped
3 large pears, roughly chopped
100g coconut oil
175g oats
50g plain flour (or your chosen gluten-free flour)
50g light brown sugar
40g golden caster sugar


Preheat oven to 180C.

Put the chopped fruit into your chosen ovenproof dish.  The fruits are quite tart so you may want to stir in a couple of tablespoons of sugar to the fruit.  Place in the preheated oven whilst you prepare the crumble topping.


Now for the crumble topping.  Place the ingredients in a large bowl and mix together whilst rubbing the ingredients between your fingers until all combined.

Take the fruit out of the oven.  Carefully pour the crumble ingredients evenly over the fruit mix and place in the oven for approx. 30 mins, until the fruit is bubbling around the edges and the crumble is golden.

Serve up!

  1. I love the idea of coconut flavour in crumble! One of the only good things about winter coming is winter desserts!


  2. Sounds amazing!! I’m definitely going to make this in October 🙂
