Would you be able to use ready brek as your oats?
HollyMonday 3rd October 2022
Hey Emily, We haven’t tested this recipe using Ready Brek style oats, it could work but the finished crumble would be much finer in texture so oats are probably better. Hope that helps!
CharlieSaturday 20th February 2021
I have a bag of frozen apple pieces and frozen blackberries. Can I use these and how would I adjust cooking time, will it just go very watery?
HollyThursday 25th February 2021
Hey Charlie, frozen apple and blackberries will work fine in this crumble, hope that helps!
GeorgiaSunday 24th May 2020
Hi! Going to try this recipe today as it looks amazing!
I did have a quick question though, I don’t have a microwave so what’s the best way/amount of time/temp to re-heat in the often?
Holly LevellTuesday 26th May 2020
Hi Georgia, cover the Apple and Blackberry Crumble with foil and heat in a 180º oven until piping hot. Hope that helps!

This is the nicest crumble I have ever made – my daughter demolished two portions. The blackberries make it so tasty! It doesn’t feel like I’m eating diet food.

2 tea spoons of spread? It looks a lot more than that in your picture. Am I reading the recipe correctly? ????
Alison SmithSaturday 11th August 2018
I use Stevia. Surely 3 tbsp eould be too much?.
AlexWednesday 8th August 2018
what kind of oats do you use?
SimonMonday 6th August 2018
Love a crumble so definitely going to have to try this recipe. I generally don’t use sweetener or low fat spread, so can I ask are there brands you’d recommend work well?
