grilled banana crumble
A crumble that is simple and delightful. Packed with nutritious, hearty ingredients (nuts, seeds, coconut, honey, bananas) and void of refined sugar, dairy and grains, this makes for an indulgent afternoon pick-me-up, a healthful dessert or, heck, even breakfast.
I spent most of this week in Dunedin (south New Zealand) with my best-friend-since-childhood Phoebe, exploring, hiking, cafe-ing and baking. Two foodie highlight were this banana crumble, served to us by her lovely friend (who brilliantly elected to add chocolate to the original recipe) and a miracle bread baked by Phoebe herself – more a birdseed loaf than your typical baked bread. I’ve been dying to try the miracle bread out myself, so now that I am back at my parents home, you can expect to see it pretty soon.
