Burger and chips – surely one of the ultimate cheat meals? Well definitely pretty sinful with the oil, mayo, cheese, sauces….. so how can we give this classic indulgence a healthy makeover? Well I tried – and these are the results – so let me know what you think!
One of the biggest grumbles I hear from clients is their concern that healthy eating will mean they miss out on the “treats” they love and will be forced to eat things that taste and look like cardboard. Not so! In fact eating as cleanly as possible often means you can really start to taste and appreciate the true flavours of food. This is a great weekend dessert, or a treat to make for friends to show them too that fit food doesn’t mean boring food!
The beauty of this recipe is the ability to customise it to your own taste. I used apples for this particular version but it works just as well with rhubarb, plums, apricots, pears – as well as various additions such as blueberries, sultanas, ginger etc. Play with flavours until your find your favourite! Same with the crumble topping – I used coconut flour and coconut sugar because I love the taste of coconut, but you could easily also use almond flour and stevia, or ground almonds and oats if you didn’t want to use flour at all.
