Leftover Fruit bowl, crumble sugar free, with porridge oat base

 sugar free Leftover fuit bowl crumble with porridge oat base

 

Use up your leftover fruit that has been sitting in the bowl for ages. It’s so tempting to just get rid of slightly soft and shrivelled fruit; when no one in the house gives the soft kiwi or wrinkly plum another look, it’s time to convert these perfectly good fruits into a delicious crumble treat.

I don’t know why, but I keep buying kiwis and then they don’t get eaten. It’s probably because its not as convinient to eat as an apple, having to peal or scoop it to get to the flesh. Then there is the chance that it is very sour which also seems to put me off.

Last time I had to turn my Kiwis into something to get them eaten, I made the Kiwi Coconut Truffels, all refreshing and just right for summer season. Now that the days have started to get darker, my body calls for warmer and starchier desserts like crumble and pies.

 

Last sunday my craving for  a sweet treat needed dealing with quickly, so I became a bit inventive and made this sugar free Kiwi Plum crumble.

The base is formed by mixing oats and quark into a thick paste, sweetening it with a little natural stevia fluid extract and lining the bottom of the pie dish with it.

I cut up the shrivelled, unwanted Kiwi and Plums into rough chunks, mixed them and spread them out on top of the makeshift base.

 

For the crust, I hoped my Suma apple & pear fruit spread  would give enough sweetness and stickiness to  get a natural caramelised crust.

I mixed the Suma fruit spread concentrate with oat and barley flakes, added a piece of unsalted butter, some almond flakes and a dash of cinnamon, then melted it together in the microwave.

Topped the fruit off with the well mixed fruitspread flake crumble and baked it for  only 25min until golden brown.

My practical side was delighted not to have had to go out and get any ingredients to make this recipe, I never have any crackers at home so a cracker base would not have been an option.

sugar free Kiwi Plum crumble ingredients

For the base you need:

Note: getting the sweetness to the desired level is a matter of trial and error, the best thing is to start with a smaller amount of whatever Stevia you have on hand, it can be ready-use, liquid or tabs (need to be dissolved too), adding more is easier than diluting – you could end up with a huge amount of treat -Don’t have any Stevia yet? – you can always use normal sweetener products until you are set up.

 

Fruit filling:

approx. 300g or more tired looking fruit from the fruit bowl

The 1st time used:

  • 4 shrivelled Plums
  • 3 soft Kiwis

2nd time round:

Sugar free oat crumble ingredients overview

 

  • 30g porridge oats
  • 20g barley flakes
  • 2 tbs almond flakes
  • 2 tbs Suma Apple & Pear fruit spread ( made from fruit concentrate- no added sugar or other stabilisers)
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • sprinkle of cinnamon to taste
Note: the measures are approximates as this was made up on the spot.

 

Mix all ingredients for the base, sweeten with stevia-sweet powder or fluid, mix well once more. The oat quark mix should be very thick and pasty. If it isn’t, just add a few more oats, then line a buttered pie dish with the mixture.
Cut up the unwanted old fruit and place them on base as they are, they don’t need any treatment or sweetening.
Place all the ingredients for the crumble style topping in a microwave safe bowl and heat shortly until the butter has melted, combine well and spread generously on top of the fruit layer, careful don’t lick the spoon or you might be tempted to eat the toppin as it is, so delicious.
If you don’t have barley flakes, you can use only oats or another type of flake you have in your pantry.
Place into preheated oven for approx. 25min until the crumble topping is golden brown and a little bit hard.

Leave to cool, serve as it is or add ice cream, yoghurt or  whipped cream. I found it’s perfectly fine as is is hot and cold. It can keep in the fridge a couple of days if you can keep your spoon off it that is.
