Enjoy this sweet, textural, melt-in-your-mouth dessert, bursting with seasonal fruit flavours.
4 beurre bosc pears, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 bunch rhubarb
1 cup cranberry-and-pomegranate juice + 2 tbs extra
1 tbs low-GI (glycaemic-index) sugar or sugar substitute
1 tsp vanilla-bean paste
115 g packet Sanitarium Light ‘n’ Tasty Macadamia & Honey with Oat Clusters cereal
1⁄4 cup rolled oats
Low-fat vanilla yoghurt to serve (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
2. Place pears, rhubarb, 1 cup juice, sugar and vanilla paste in a deep pan over medium heat. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until pears are just tender and rhubarb has collapsed (about 8 minutes). Transfer to a baking dish.
3. Put cereal in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin until a finer crumb forms. Place in a bowl and add oats and extra juice. Stir well to coat evenly, then spread over top of fruit in pan. Bake until crunchy and golden (about 12 to 15 minutes).
4. Serve warm crumble with yoghurt, if desired.
