Christmas Crumble!

Guest recipe by Happy Skin Kitchen.

Serves 4 | Prep time: 10 mins | Cook time: 40 mins | Difficulty: Easy | Suitability: Vegan

If you’re going to leave a special treat out for Santa this year (you should!), then make it this Christmas Crumble! Tangy and sweet, this festive treat requires only a few ingredients and tastes best when warmed through and served with custard, cream or if you’re feeling especially naughty… ice cream!




For the filling:

300g fresh or frozen cranberries

4 apples - peeled, core removed and chopped into small pieces

200ml water

Juice and zest of 1 large orange

4 heaped tbsp Tropical Sun Organic Coconut Sugar

1/2 tsp Tropical Sun Ground Cinnamon

A generous grating of Tropical Sun Whole Nutmeg

For the crumble topping:

150g jumbo oats

75g mixed nuts - roughly chopped - I used pecans and hazelnuts, but almonds and walnuts will work too

4 tbsp maple syrup

3 tbsp melted Tropical Sun Coconut Oil

1 tsp Tropical Sun Ground Cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

  • Add the cranberries and chopped apples to large pan together with the water, orange juice and zest. Cook on a medium heat for 10-15 minutes until the cranberries start to burst and the apples have softened.

  • Add in the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir everything to combine and cook for another 5 minutes. If at any point the fruit mixture starts to stick to the pan, add small amounts of water and stir.

  • To make the crumble topping, add all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix until well combined.

  • Transfer the stewed fruits to a baking tin. Add the crumble mixture on top and spread it evenly across the tin.

  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the crumble is slightly golden.

  • Serve while warm with custard, cream, or, if it's a 'heavy-eating' kinda day, ice cream!
