ATTENTION BOYS, this works better than flowers.

Flowers are so last year! (Shush! I know you see right through me; I’m actually dying for a fu***ing bouquet.) BUT, a fancy blueberry, peach and basil crumble?! Now, that’s next level romantic shit. If the way to a man’s heart is via his stomach… than the way to a womans’ is through her sweet-tooth? Let’s all just pretend that made sense… Anywho…this crumble is so freakin’ easy to prepare that I dare say, even a male specimen can make it. Let’s break it down to three simple steps (no multitasking required, promise).

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
2-3 ripe peaches (stoned and sliced)
handful of basil leaves (washed – don’t be disgusting)
juice of one lemon

1 cup almond meal (a fancy name for ground almonds)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used almond but if you’re looking for that extra sumthin’ sumthin’ I’d use hazelnut or even better; macadamia)
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 heaped tbsp honey (don’t be stinge)

1. combine all of the filling ingredients in a medium sized bowl then toss to combine. fruity deliciousness in an OVENPROOF dish… unless you’ve prepared a firefighter’s outfit… in which case, use a piece of paper.

3.Using a fork, combine the crumble ingredients in a small bowl then assemble on top of fruit mixture.

Bake for 30ish minutes or until nice and golden.

Serve with plain yoghurt, ice-cream or whipped cream (oh yeah!).
