Recipe - Coconut Gooseberry Crumble (gluten and dairy free)

Ingredients

500g Gooseberries
90g Raw Cane Sugar
2 tbsp water

100g dessicated coconut
75g brown rice flour
85g coconut oil
75g coconut sugar 

Top and tail the gooseberries.  Put them into a good sized oven-proof dish, sprinkle over the raw can sugar, and add the water. 





Put the other ingredients into a food processor and whizz until the texture of breadcrumbs. Alternatively you can mix together in a bowl using a knife to 'cut' the fat into the other ingredients. Sprinkle the crumble topping on and cook at 180 degrees C (170 for a fan oven), gas mark 4 for 45-50 minutes.

  9. We have a small gooseberry bush outside bearing fruit but all the leaves have gone, think some bug has invaded :( Do love them in a crumble, never used brown rice flour before will have to look next time I am out!

    1. Might be aphids, slugs, snails, or gooseberry sawfly. We had quite a few leaves attacked - going to get some organic insecticide. Did use soapnut liquid which helped a bit.

  10. I'm actually not sure if I've ever had gooseberries, but this looks lovely - and pretty simple to make! Simple recipes are my favourite kind of recipes.
