Whether you are happy about it or not the weather is getting colder. The time for thick knit jumpers and heavily spiced, warming desserts is upon us. It’s not quite the time for chestnuts, mulled wine and carols but, stews, wintery soups, crumbles and pumpkin pies? Yes it most certainly is! Now we all know I like to make something a little different and be experimental with my flavours, but hopefully you will all love my healthy Plum and Blueberry Crumble recipe. Yes of course this is a healthy crumble (relatively speaking). It has no flour and the sugar has been replaced by maple syrup. It takes just 5 minutes prep and then it is in the oven and ready to go before you know it!
