4 dessert apples
200g blueberries (fresh or frozen) – defrosted if frozen
4 tbsp fresh apple juice
1 tbsp light muscovado sugar (light brown soft sugar)

75g plain while flour
75g wholemeal flour
75g unsalted butter (cut into small pieces)
75g light muscovado sugar
3 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp sesame seeds
3 tbsp rolled oats


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Put the plain white flour and wholemeal flour into a large mixing bowl and stir together with a spoon.
  2. Add the butter. Rub the butter and flour together with your fingertips (or pastry cutter) until they look like coarse crumbs. Stir in the sugar, seeds and oats.
  3. Remove the skin from the apple and cut them into quarters. Then careful remove the core and slice the fruits into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Put the pieces of apple into an ovenproof dish (900ml/ 2 pint). Add the blueberries and pour over the apple juice. Sprinkle some sugar evenly over the top.
  5. Spoon over the topping in an even layer then put the dish in the oven. Cook for 35 minutes until the top is crisp and beginning to brown.
  6. It can be served warm or cold. Best to eat with ice-cream.


  1. You can make this oaty crumble using ramekins instead of ovenproof dish.
  2. Try different variety of seasonal fruit such as strawberries, nectarines, peaches, plums, blackberries or pears.

    Hi there,

    I really like your website. Just wanted to let you know that I linked this post in Parenting Works’ Mid-Week Links this week.

  17. […] out there like oaty fruit crumble? I haven’t tried making this one myself but the blueberries, the oats, the […]

  18. beachlover says:

    so rich with fruit and bet it’s must taste nutty wt plenty of nuts..lovely!

  19. Pei-Lin says:

    Agreed! When us dessert fans looking for our better half, he/she should be a soul mate who also shares a love for anything sweet, too! That’s what pulls us together, right? I still am amazed at how some people can change their eating habit just for their partners!? Omnivores become herbivores!!?? Hahaha!

    The fruit crumble looks perfectly good on its own. With oats, its nutrition value increases! More fiber!

  20. This looks so beautiful! Love it! Will make it soon… (I just made your lemon cheesecake again a few weeks ago and it was heavenly)
    I love anything crumble =) Love. Jamie Oliver’s apple crumble is another terrific one and super easy to make…
