Comforting Crumble... Low-Carb and High-Fibre Dessert Perfection

Is there any dessert in the world more comforting than crumble? Hot, sweet fruit buried under a layer of crunchy, buttery topping, usually served with hot custard, cold ice-cream or just a lick of cream. 

The problem is, as ever, white flour. When combined with butter and sugar you end up with the triple threat of refined carbs, fat and sugars. By switching the flour for Lo-Dough and the sugar for sweetener, you end up removing two of the main sources of calories. A little butter is still required to give you that familiar, comforting richness, but at this point, it's much more manageable. What's more, because it's Lo-Dough, you are upping the fibre content of the dish by 9.3g - so it actually has an additional health benefit over a bog standard crumble. We even have enough room carbs and calorie-wise to throw a small handful of oats in the mix for additional texture, as well as additional fibre. 

Fruit is another fantastic sauce of fibre, as well as a number of other vitamins and nutrients - and in this particular case, we have combined rhubarb, plums and blackberries. The result is nothing short of crumble heaven... sharp, sweet, soft, crunchy... everything you could ever want from a crumble!
