Ingredients

Topping

  • 1½ cups finely ground almonds
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 2-3 tablesp. liquid honey or 2 tablesp. honey and 1 tablesp. raw sugar
  • 1-2 teasp. cinnamon
  • 100g butter or coconut oil

 Fruit Filling

  • Stewed apples, or a mix of both feijoas and apples (*)
  • No sweetening needed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon is a nice option

(*) Just apples of course are fine. At this time of the year when feijoas are plentiful, they make a tasty addition to the apples – all unpeeled of course!

Method

  • Wash and core apples, and slice. Cook gently, with a small amount of water.
  • When almost tender add the unpeeled sliced feijoa and simmer a few minutes.
  • Cinnamon may be added (optional).
  • Prepare the topping:
    • Combine all dry ingredients in food processor or by hand.
    • Add butter or oil, and honey + sugar if desired.
    • Process until a nice lumpy topping is formed.
  • Spoon topping over hot fruit.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes 180˚C.

Tasty alternative: You can place the topping on top of the cold, cut-up, uncooked fruit if desired and cook for a longer period at a slightly lower temperature, until fruit is tender and topping lightly browned.

This dessert is delicious served with dairy-free Frozen Banana Ice-cream.
