  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (or butter if you prefer)

Recipe's preparation

  1. For the filling:

    Put the dates, roughly chopped rhubarb, peeled and roughly chopped green apple into the mixing bowl.  Put the dial to lid closed position and chop turbo 3 or 4 times.

    Add the cinnamon, vanilla and 2 tablespoons coconut oil (about 50/60g) and cook REVERSE speed 1 at 90 degrees for 5 minutes.

    Pour into baking dish.

    For the topping:

    Add 1/2 cup (65g) brown rice flour, 1/2 teaspoon aluminium free baking powder, 1 up (50g ) quinoa flakes, 1/2 cup (50g) almonds,  1/2 cup shredded coconut, 1/2 cup (70g) coconut sugar and 3 tablespoons coconut oil (about 75/80 g).  Mix closed lid position turbo a few times - until desired crumb-like consistency is achieved.

    Pour topping over filling and bake in a moderate oven for about 30 minutes until brown and bubbling.




You can use butter (organic grass fed if possible) instead of coconut oil (50 grams for the filling and 100 grams for the toping)

You can use rolled oats instead of quinoa flakes (1/2 cup)

  • Tried and tested. Not too bad

    Tried and tested.

    Not too bad but I think if I used oats I think it would have been perfect for me.  Quinoa flakes had a prominant smell and taste to them which I did not like too much but other than that. Absolutely delicious
