This healthy dessert is perfect for a cozy night in or a weekend BBQ. Fill with your favorite fruits and TADA! You’ve made the Apple, Cherry, and Rosemary Crumble Recipe from SUPERFOODS.
Cherries are rich in vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants. While fresh is best, if they are out of season, you can use frozen pitted cherries in this recipe instead.
PREP + COOK TIME 1 HOUR
8 medium red apples
¼ cup water
3 cups cherries, pitted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¹⁄³ cup plus 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1½ cups almonds
1 cup whole-wheat self-rising flour
3 teaspoons fresh rosemary leaves, chopped finely
½ cup coconut oil, melted
1½ cups unsweetened vanilla-bean yogurt
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Peel and core apples; cut into 3⁄4-inch pieces. Place apples and the water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, covered, for 10 minutes or until apples are just tender.
3. Place apples and cooking liquid in a large bowl; stir in cherries, cinnamon, extract, and ¹⁄³ cup maple syrup until combined. Spoon into a 2-quart shallow ovenproof dish.
4. Process nuts, flour, and rosemary until nuts are chopped coarsely. With motor operating, add coconut oil and remaining maple syrup until well combined. Spoon crumble mixture over fruit (piling crumble high on top of fruit as it will sink down during cooking).
5. Bake for 40 minutes or until crumble topping is golden and fruit is soft. Serve with yogurt.
