Pear and Peach Breakfast Crumble
Why I Love This Recipe
I like healthy, fruity meals for breakfast with a bit of a sugar hit. My mother suggested stewing fruit, and so a searched online and combined a few recipes to come up with this. It is healthy, hearty and absolutely delicious.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 tsp Lemon juice (at most)
4 peaches / 400 g sliced peaches in juice (I use Weight Watchers)
Cinnamon / Nutmeg / your preferred flavour (optional) – how much you use depends on you
Granola or muesli – how much of this you use depends on you (see below). I use homemade granola (recipe to come later) or Lowan Whole Foods Fruit and Nut Muesli.
200g Low fat greek yoghurt (I use this much because I really love yoghurt, but again how much you use is up to you)
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Core and cut pears into eighths. Place them in saucepan with approx half cup of water and lemon juice. Bring water to boil. The simmer pears for five minutes, or until pears are soft.
- Drain most of the water from the saucepan, though keep a little juice leftover. If you are making this breakfast for one, keep a fair amount of juice as you will refrigerate the pears with the juice for future mornings.
- Place pears with peaches in a small ramekin (size depends on you and how much you want to eat) / divide the pears and peaches among four ramekins. Ensure the peaches are cored and sliced thinly if using fresh peaches – if using tinned simply place as many peaches are you like in the ramekin.
- If you are making this breakfast for one, you can simply use as many pear slices as you want today and keep the rest with some juice in the fridge for following breakfasts.
- Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over the mixture – how much you use depends on your taste. I usually place about half a teaspoon of cinnamon over each ramekin.
- Now cover the mixture with granola or muesli – again this depends on how much you want to eat. It is a good idea to completely cover the fruit with the muesli or granola.
- Bake in the oven until muesli or granola is a golden brown and the peaches are easy to cut into. This is approximately 20 minutes (as often my granola is already a golden brown and it is difficult to tell). Note that while you can eat it straightaway, the fruit will be very hot.
- Serve with yoghurt.
