Healthy Breakfast Apple Crumble Baby Led Feeding with Oscar.

It dawned on me yesterday while I munched away my apple crumble dessert that this could also serve as a super, healthy and delicious breakfast. So here it is folks – i’m waking you up to apple crumble and nice cream on this rainy Sunday Irish morning. I can think of worse things to be eating right now. I genuinely love this dish and the smells that fill my kitchen just bring me back to my childhood days in my own Mommas kitchen.

It will only take you 15 minutes to prepare and it is so worth every minute. If your little one isn’t quite used to using a spoon yet make the pastry base and use either small pie tins or the mini muffin tin. It makes it much easier for little hands to feed themselves.

Feel free to play around with the recipe. I used coconut oil but you could use butter instead, you can also swap apple for berries or rhubarb which is also really good, although make sure to add a little maple syrup as it can be quite tart. I used a mixture of sweet and cooking apples because we like that sweet/sour taste in our house but you can use just sweet if you prefer.
