Rustic Plum and Apple Crumble

I’ve always looked at the beautiful, creative dishes that other bloggers share and thought that there is no way I could do that. I’m the type of person who always needs a recipe to cook a meal. Once I’ve used the recipe I can get creative, but I need that recipe as a starting point.

However, this blog seems to have given me some confidence and motivation to give this recipe creating thing a go. That and the ridiculous amount of plums our tree is giving us this season!

So, here goes! To fit with my clean living and I Quit Sugar, my recipes will be healthy (or healthier!) and low sugar. Whenever I can I use my Thermomix to cook, so all instructions will be for the Thermie. I’m sure every recipe can be made without the Thermomix but since I only have time to create and test when my little ones are asleep, I won’t be able to provide non-Thermomix cooking instructions.
