Pear and Apple Maple Crumble

Pear and Apple Maple Crumble

Apples and pears are in season, and what better way to use up leftovers of these low GI, high fibre fruits than preparing a warming fruit crumble as the weather gets cooler. This is not your usual crumble full of butter, flour and sugar either – it uses untoasted muesli, a little butter or low fat spread and maple syrup for a bit of sweetness. Serve with low fat plain yoghurt if desired.
