Breakfast Nutty Apple Crumble

Crumble for breakfast?! Well yes!

This is not your average crumble – though to be fair.  It’s a super healthy version, which is just so good, and it is so tasty you wouldn’t believe that it is so healthy!


  • ¾ cup of low fat unsweetened yoghurt
  • 1 apple washed and grated (skin on)
  • 1 tbsp of rolled oats
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp of ground flax seed or LSA
  • 2-3 walnuts or almonds – chopped

Optional: 1 tsp of runny honey


Spoon the yoghurt into a bowl and place the grated apple on top

Sprinkle the oats, ground flax seed (or LSA) and cinnamon over the yoghurt and apple

Add the chopped nuts and optional drizzle of honey

Stir it all together or eat as it is – however you prefer!

Adapt it

  • You can use grated pear instead of grated apple
  • Try stewed apple or pear instead of grated
  • Swap the oats for a tbsp. of pumpkin seeds

Top tip

  • LSA is ground linseed (flax seed), sunflower seed and almonds mixed together! You can find it in most supermarkets and health stores. Best to store it in the fridge

FABULOUS things about this recipe

It is made with unsweetened yoghurt which means you get all the goodness of protein without the added sugar. Make sure you look for a yoghurt with less than 0.5g fat/100g. There are some seriously high fat thick and creamy yoghurts on the market which are not an ideal everyday breakfast choice

Rolled oats – perfect to add to your breakfast and no cooking required. Packed with fibre which is great to keep things moving through, they make the breakfast more filling and also are helpful for those managing high cholesterol

Cinnamon – spices are all round winners to add flavour the healthy way

Walnuts and LSA – packed full of healthy fats, great for your heart as well as helpful for healthy skin, hair and nails.
