Cooking With The Kids
My daughter inspired this post having yesterday picked some plums from our plum tree in the garden and asking if she could cook something by herself! She decided that she wanted to make a healthy plum crumble which sounded delicious to me so I thought why not. What amazed me was she really did want to make it herself, deciding what she wanted to put into her healthy crumble topping. It tasted so good that I thought I would share it with you and hope to inspire you to get cooking with the kids using seasonal fruit.
Enough chopped plums (can also add apples) to fill a baking dish (we used 20+)
1 cup oats
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
1/4 cup of chopped almonds
1/2 cup of shredded coconut
2 tablespoons of raw honey
2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of coconut sugar (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Chop the plums and apples and place in a baking dish. Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowel and stir. Heat the coconut oil in a pan and once melted pour into the dry ingredients along with the honey. Mix well, you may need to use your hands. pour the mixture over the plums and cover with an oven proof lid or foil. Bake for around 30
minutes until bubbling at the bottom. For the last 5 minutes remove the cover to allow the top to brown slightly - keep and eye on it so it doesn't burn. Serve with a heaped spoonful of natural yoghurt. ENJOY.
