Apple crumble


  • 2 large Bramley cooking apples
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp xylitol (or more if needed)
  • 100g (3.5 oz) full-fat natural Greek-style yoghurt (unsweetened)
  • 1 tbsp chopped or flaked nuts of your choice (e.g. walnuts, almonds, pecans)


  1. Core and slice the apples into thin slices (peel them first if they’re not organic).
  2. Place the apple slices in a pan with the water. Cover and set over a medium heat for 4–5 minutes or until the apples just start to break up.
  3. Add the xylitol, and stir the apples with a wooden spoon. Cover and heat for around another 6 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes, until the apples are at the consistency you want.
  4. Taste the apple and add a bit more xylitol for sweetness if needed.
  5. Divide into two bowls, top with the Greek yoghurt and the chopped nuts, and serve.
