    I guess (never tried it thou) that you would just substitute the flour and use butter and sugar substitute. I can't help with quantities, I just guess!

    Apple and plum crumble I love making it in summer and winter....

    I use stevia half and half or xylitiol .....as my sugar

    A touch or stick of cinnamon

    I use organic flour , but I am going to try using half almond flour next time I make a crumble .....

    I only make a few a year ......and they freeze well....that way the crumble goes further and I use less...

    Hi Rosemary I found this on Low carb recipes. Hope you find it useful:)

    Plum/Apple/Rhubarb Crumble Cake Plum cake Ingredients:
    100 g almond flour + 3 tablespoons ground almonds
    1 tsp baking powder
    3 eggs
    coconut milk / cream as needed
    pinch of salt
    sweetener
    good pound plums/apples/rhubarb
    for the crumb topping:
    2 tbsp ghee
    almond flour
    sweetener
    ground cinnamon
    Preheat oven to 160 degrees (fan assisted)
    Beat 3 eggs until foamy - Mix in the almond flour and baking powder, stir in enough coconut milk or cream to give the dough a soft but still firm consistency; add a pinch of salt - sweeten to taste -
    Line and grease the base of a springform pan (26cm) with baking parchment, grease the sides of the tin.
    Press pastry into the tin.
    Wash plums, remove stones and cut in halves, place plums on top of the dough and sprinkle with cinnamon.
    Topping:
    Mix 2 tbsp ghee + almond flour + sweetener to resemble bread crumbs, sprinkle over the cake and bake for 30 - 40 minutes.
    Cover with aluminum foil half way through baking time to prevent the crumble from burning.

    Eat with cream/home made low carb custard/mascarpone custard
    Makes 12 slices = 4,7g carbs per portion (with plums, will be lower if made with rhubarb)

    Hi I'm pretty sure it's the rich butter used in Asian( Indian) cooking, but if you don't want to use this, there is probably another alternative. Good luck with your baking:)

    The Indian version of clarified butter (ie a butter that has had its milk solids removed, making it clear), melt butter in a pan over gentle heat skim off any solids from the top

    I rubbed butter into ground almond, no sweetener, put it on unsweetened apple with a little cinnemon, baked it till it bubbled a bit, and served it with double cream. I wasn't sure, but in fact my family didn't even notice the difference from the flour, oats and sugar version I used to make. I can't manage apple, but I had some of the crumble with as much apple juice as it had soaked up, and it was delicious.

    All these recipes sound delicious, and will have to try them out, but my carer helper may have a moan if he does not like it, just buy him a packet of crumble mix for the easiest, well I have missed having a nice legal hot dessert, so now it's back on the treat board, thank you to everybody for the info, ttfn
