For the fruit:

  • 6 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 10 feijoas, flesh scooped and roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice

For the crumble topping:

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, chilled and solid (or substitute dairy free spread)


  • Preheat oven to 180C fanbake.
  • Put fruit, maple syrup and mixed spice in a medium sized saucepan. Add a splash of water to get it started, then cook over a medium heat for 15-20 minutes, or until fruit is soft but still holds its form. Pour into a baking dish.
  • Mix dry crumble topping ingredients together in a bowl, then rub in the coconut oil with your fingers. The crumble should have a clumpy, sand like texture. 
  • Tip the crumble mixture over the fruit in a roughly even layer and use your fingers to dimple the surface.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown and slightly crisp. Keep an eye on it in the last five minutes, as the macadamias will burn if left for too long.
  • Serve with a spoonful of coconut cream, yoghurt or ice cream, if you like.
