Life is Short, Eat Dessert First: Apple Blueberry Crumb

What's the saying... "Life is short, eat dessert first." I took it to heart. I whipped up a batch of these last night so I could start my day with one for breakfast.

Sweet and nutty crumble topping.
Juicy layer of apples and blueberries.
Ohhh yeah.
A sweet way to start the day.

Shelly's Apple Blueberry Crumb

1 1/2 Apples, chopped
2/3 cup Blueberries
1 Tablespoon Sugar-Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)
1 Tablespoon Sugar-Free Jello Vanilla Pudding Mix, dry
dash of Cinnamon

1/3 cup Raw Almonds
1/3 cup Steel Cut Oats
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Sugar-Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Caramel)
1 Tablespoon Almond Butter
1 Tablespoon Cold Butter

Chop apples. Toss with blueberries, SF syrup, pudding mix and cinnamon and spoon an equal amount in each of the 4-4 oz. ramekins. Set aside.

Whiz almonds in a mini food processor till fine. Add the rest of the ingredients and whiz again till thoroughly mixed.

Sprinkle clumps of the topping equally over each ramekin of fruit.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until golden. You can eat them warm but I prefer them chilled.

I love them chilled with a squirt of No Sugar Added, Homemade Whipped Cream, Warm Vanilla Custard or a scoop of Protein Ice Cream.

Mmmm an Apple Blueberry Crumb topped with Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Ice Cream or Apple Pie Protein Ice Cream.

I may have to give this one a try. Guess what? I found birds custard in albertsons here!! Haven't made any yet - soon.

Question - Obviously this dish would be higher in complex carbs from the fruit and oats. If you eat this in the morning do you watch your other complex carbs through the day? Or would you still have one of your muffins and such? I know you don't eat simple carbs, so do you stay super vigilant with your complex carbs or just not worry about it?

Yay. I hope you love it... my favorite is the toasted coconut version I post a few weeks ago.

Yes. If I have a carby meal I try and make sure my other 2 meals and snack are less carby... so on a day I have oatmeal or muffins I wouldn't have a tortilla pizza for lunch. I plan the night before so I can adjust. Now not saying it never happens but I try.
