A very British dessert turned raw! - Raw Berry Crumble

It's the Royal Wedding day and I am sooooo excited about it, and so are the girls, they cannot wait to watch a Prince and soon to be Princess get married! Though Fia is a little upset that we didn't get invited, especially as we were at a Prince and Princesses Wedding (well she thought they were at least) only a couple of weeks ago (my lovely cousins). 

I was thinking what to make in honour of this day, something British, but with a healthy twist. Then I remembered a dessert I came up with about a month back that was a raw take on a well known dish, it was absolutely mouth watering and better than the real thing (In my opinion anyway), not to mention the fact that you don't get the crusty burnt dish to have to scrub after- brilliant.  And it went down very well. So here is my very British dessert, turned raw for you, Raw Berry Crumble!

5-6 cups mixed frozen berries (you can use fresh too, though you get more yummy juices with frozen!)
5-6  Nakd 'Oatie' Bars- I really like the 'Berry Cheeky' one for this recipe, though I think 'Apple Pie' would work too!
Juice and zest of half a lemon
Drizzle of maple syrup- or more if you like it sweeter
small handful of fresh mint, chopped fine

Mix the berries in a dish with the lemon juice, zest and mint. Leave to macerate at room temperature for a couple of hours.

Add the drizzle of maple syrup (or to taste) to the berries and mix.
Blitz up the Nakd Bars in a blender till you have a crumb resembling the traditional crumble mix!
Sprinkle the crumble mix over the berries and voila! You have a delicious healthy dessert!

Congratulations William and Kate!

  1. Forgot to mention, if you have trouble finding Nakd Bars then blitz up your own topping with a mixture of rolled oats, pitted dates and cashew and almonds, delish!
