Easy-as ABC Crumble (slow cooker)

We like our abbreviations in this house. And we like things that are easy to make and delicious to eat, especially with still not much of a kitchen. Hence “EASY-AS ABC CRUMBLE” was born. You can have crumble without an oven…..YAY!!! Of course you could cook this in the oven if you like…..but the fruit was so delicious done in the slow cooker I am not sure that I would!

Fruit layer:

  • 6 apples (I used 5 large granny smiths and 1 medium fuji), chopped in chunks
  • 6 medium bananas, sliced
  • About 1/2 cup custard powder (I used up what I had left) – could use vanilla essence and a bit of tapioca flour instead
  • tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  • Almond pulp from 2 cups almonds (made into almond milk) – about 3 cups of pulp
  • about 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup dates covered in boiling water to soak for 15 minutes (and the soaking water)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil.


  1. Combine fruit, custard power (or flour and vanilla), cinnamon and lemon zest in slow cooker making sure the custard powder or flour is absorbed into the fruit.
  2. Make the crumble but blitzing the dates to a purée, adding water as needed, add spices zest oats and almond pulp and combine. Add melted coconut oil to mix in. Add the rest of the soaking water as needed to form a damp crumbly mixture.
  3. Spread mix over fruit and pat down gently.
  4. Put tea towel over slow cooker pot and put lid on over the top.
  5. Cook on high for 2 – 2.5 hours.
