Banana Crumble

This is a very simple recipe, a great go-to when you need dessert (or breakfast) in a pinch. You can use any type of fruit. I chose bananas as I was bringing this to a friend’s house that has a one year old and I wanted to bring something all of us could eat.

This is what you’ll need;

2 large over ripe bananas, sliced in rounds

1/2 cup flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

4 tbsp butter

1 cup oats

1/8 tea salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp cardamom

1/4 tsp nutmeg

This is a very child-friendly recipe (as evidenced by the amount of variations there are on my blog!) cheap and easy to throw together at the last minute.

Preheat oven to 350 F

First spray a pie pan or oven safe dish with cooking spray. I used coconut oil from Trader Joe’s. Next, have your child place the sliced bananas into the dish. I had Zara make a spiral shape which she then filled in.

In a medium sized bowl add all other ingredients except butter. You or your child can mix these ingredients (with newly cleaned hands of course!) until they are all combined. Next, pinch small pieces of butter off until all butter is in pieces, in your bowl. Using your hands, pinch butter and dry ingredients together until combined. Butter should look like pea-sized coated balls. I found Z does not like to do this step as she has recently formed an aversion to touching butter. Weird, I know, especially as she loves to eat butter in all forms. Oh we’ll, moving on.

Place pie dish in oven for 12 minutes. The top of the crumble should be just browning and the bananas should be bubbling through. Serve with ice cream or a liberal handful of chocolate chips.
