Hayley was so excited to make and snap this one – she called seventy eleven times to tell me so! I don’t blame her really…

Cleansers will welcome this one as it comes as a sweet treat for your weekend. Apples are starting to make their way into the grocers – they are delicious and are the all round wonder food being full of antioxidents, canter fighting properties, good for your heart and assist in weight loss. What are you waiting for? Just beware – Hayley will be over in an instant if you do whip it up tonight!

Cleansers Apple Crumble

4 apples
2 peaches
1 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of craisins (or sultanas)
1/2 cup of walnuts/almonds (or nuts of your choice)
1/4 sunflower seeds

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.
Peel apples and cut into chunks.
Place in a saucepan with 1 cup of water and bring to the boil.
Once boiling, gently simmer for approx 15 – 20 minutes or until the apples are soft.
Remove from heat and set aside. Strain liquid but keep for later use.
In a bowl combine dry ingredients.
In a baking dish, place apples in the bottom to cover the dish. Sprinkle dry ingredients on top. Once done, pour 1/2 cup of the left over juice over the top of the dry ingredients and place in the oven – cook for 15-20 minutes, checking regularly or until the top is golden brown.

    Hi Nat, can we eat this in the evening during the cleanse? I thought we were not allowed to eat fruit after midday.

    Also, are oats allowed on the cleanse?

    I was also wondering the same thing as Danielle. I have been struggling with having a sweet tooth at night, but haven’t caved. This sounds like it may do the trick if we are allowed to eat fruit after mid-day.

      Indeed you can – especially when the fruit is cooked it is far gentler on the gut.
