Quick and easy crumble in a cup

I am so proud of this idea. I love crumble of any kind. It is possibly my favourite dessert.

Crumble in a Cup

Handful of oats

1 tbsp vegetable Oil

1 tbsp ground almonds

Cinnamon

1 tbsp brown sugar

Fruit (I used 1/4 cooking apple and some frozen mixed berries)

Honey

So I kind of eyeball this one whenever I do it. I am a big fan of the actual crumble bit so I tend to make that layer pretty big, depends on how you like it. So in a small bowl put in the oats, then the ground almonds, then some brown sugar. All depends on how big your cup is going to be. Sprinkle in some cinnamon. Pour in the oil and mix it up. You want enough oil so that the dry ingredients just start to stick together like bread crumbs.

In the actual cup put in your chopped apple and berries, drizzle some honey on top. I wouldn’t add the honey if you were using eating apples. Pour the crumble mixture on top and stick the cup in the microwave on medium heat for 2 minutes. Please make sure it is a microwave safe cup.

Serve with ice-cream or cream or it is also lovely on it’s own. Just be careful not to burn your tongue!

Overnight Oats inspired by “A. very special breakfast” (Check her out)

First of all, my apologies for doing a big bulk post over a week ago and being completely inactive since. My excuse is that we only just got internet in the house. Take it or leave it.

So breakfast is a big deal for me. I friggin love cereal and pancakes and toast and every other breakfast food. The above mentioned blog is written by a friend that I made this summer and I go there regularly for breakfast inspiration.

My very favorite idea that came from her is Overnight Oats. As the name suggests, you make this the night before and leave it in the fridge but I have also done it in the morning before training and it is ready when I finish up as a light lunch. My housemates have also gotten into this.

Get any kind of jar that is clean, preferably sterilized.

And. . .

Oats

Yoghurt

Milk

Fruit/ Seeds/ Nuts

Any other sweeteners or sauces you fancy.

Put the oats in first with the yoghurt. I use one pot of flavored Alpro Soya yoghurt and that way I don’t need a sweetener. Mix it up and then you can add a little milk (soya for me!). Then I like to layer the rest of my ingredients so I usually put a layer of mixed toasted seeds on the oats and then frozen berries on top. Leave in the fridge overnight or just for a few hours, grab a spoon and enjoy!
