Berry Crumble Slice.

Updated: Nov 6, 2023

I particulary love this slice for breakfast, heated slightly with a dollop of greek yoghurt and extra fresh berries. It makes a perfect snack or meal any time of the day!


I use frozen berries in this recipe as I always have them on hand in the freezer, the sugars in the frozen berries act differently as they defrost quickly whilst cooking, leaving a sticky jam like sweetness and texture. I also prefer to as they are definitely more affordable that way. You can definitely use fresh if you'd prefer, there are no rules to this one it just may alter the stability of the slice.

There are a few short cuts you can take to this recipe.

If you would like an easier base, you can use a good quality store bought whole food cookie, there are some great gluten free and natural sugar brands around. Check out the health food stores and isles of your local supermarkets.

If you would like an easier topping, you can also substitute for a whole food paleo style store bought granola. Again, check out your health food stores and isles of your local supermarkets.


This below is the way I generally make mine. I do change it up a little from time to time and add and substitute thing I have (or don't have) on hand.


Base

  • 2 1/2 cups whole almond meal

  • 1/2 cup wholemeal spelt flour

  • 1 cup coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Berry Layer

  • 500g frozen mixed berries

  • 1/4 cup of chia seeds


Crumble Topping

  • 1 cup Oats

  • 1/2 cup of raw nuts

  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds

  • 2 tb almond butter

  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes

  • 1 tb coconut oil

  • 1/4 maple syrup

  • pinch of salt



Directions

The three steps to this recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 180dg and line 20 cm slice tray with baking paper.

  2. Combine your Base ingredients and press firmly into lined tray.

  3. Bake the base in 180dg oven for 15 minutes.



  1. Remove and add frozen berries straight to the hot base

  2. Sprinkle evenly over your chia seeds.



  1. Combine your crumble mix and if a finer consistency is needed or desired, blitz in thermomix or blender for a couple of seconds. I use my thermomix turbo setting for 4 x 1 second intervals.

  2. Press to top your frozen berries and chia. I like to leave little window holes of berries peaking out for an appealing look to the end result.



  1. Bake for another 15-20 minutes or until your desired toasty topping appears, I like mine extra crunchy and brown. I like to cut this slice whilst still warm before cooling and setting in fridge for an hour or two.

  2. Cool and set in fridge for at least an hour.

  3. Cut and serve!

P.S the corner piece is always the best! Enjoy.
