This is my go to summer crumble. I make it all the time and it is one of the quickest dessert recipes to make. I found this recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow’s Cookbook called My Father’s Daughter.


4 cups of fruit – fresh or frozen ( I use  a mixed berry bag)

1/4 cup spelt light flour plus 1 tbsp to mix with fruit

1 cup of whole oats

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp cinnamon

pinch of sea salt

4 tbsp organic unsalted butter at room temperature


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a round pie shaped pan. Mix fruit with 1 tbsp white spelt flour and place into pie pan. In a separate bowl using your hands mix spelt light flour, whole oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, sea salt and organic butter. Make sure the butter is mixed into the other ingredients to create a crumble. Sprinkle mixture on top of fruit. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Let cool and enjoy! Top with sorbet or ice cream.

Since i had sooo many apples this week from my apple picking outing, i decided to make apple muffins. This recipe was inspired by Gwyneth Paltrows cookbook, my father’s daughter.


1 cup spelt flour light

1 cup whole wheat flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup milk of choice – organic, almond, soy

2-3 apples of choice chopped into small cubes


1/4 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup spelt light flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp milk

2 tbsp organic butter or earth balance margarine

1/8 tsp sea salt


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup baking tray or use silicone cups. In a bowl sift flours, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and cinnamon. In another bowl mix oil, maple syrup and milk. Chop apples and place to the side. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients and then fold in apples. Scoop batter into muffin cups.


Combine flours, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, butter and milk. Use you fingers to mix until the topping becomes crumbly. Place topping onto each muffin and then bake for 25-30 minutes. Take out of oven and cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
