It’s a complete breakfast readyContinue reading “Fresh Berry Yogurt Granola: #206 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments”

Apple Date Crumble Tatin: #187 of 1000 Sustainable Food Experiments

Megan and I came up with this fusion idea: apple crumble + date squares + tarte tatin. You caramelize the fruit in a pan just like the French delicacy tarte tatin, but then instead of covering it in puff pastry, you put oatmeal crumble on top and bake the whole thing.

The crumble topping in this recipe is my Grandma’s creation. We couldn’t decide whether to use it for apple crumble or date squares, so we whipped up a double batch of topping and made both desserts!
