Pippa says:

“Incredibly comforting, but healthier than traditional crumble. Adding wholegrain oats to the topping makes this higher in fibre.

“Serve hot or cold with a dollop of thick, low-fat yoghurt or a little frozen yoghurt on the side and chopped mint on top.

“Add some extra crunch to the crumble topping with a handful of chopped nuts, such as walnuts or almonds.”
