Healthy Berry Crumble

This Healthy Berry Crumble is made using frozen berries which taste no different to fresh when baked in a crumble. I've made this a healthier crumble by keeping the calories down with a slightly thinner layer of crumble topping using a mixture of oats and flour.

Berry crumble is really quick and easy to make, but you can make the berry filling and the crumble separately in advance, then assemble just before baking. Baking takes just 12 minutes in a combi, or half an hour in an oven.
