Apple Crumble... that’s a delicacy our hearts would crumble at the sight of. The fruity aroma of stewed apples together with the intense aroma of cinnamon makes one feel giddy with delight. If this indulgence has been banned from your menu, as it is laden with refined flour, butter, sugar and other must-avoid items, we have good news for you. This heart-friendly, high-fibre version features stewed apples baked with a topping of high-fibre muesli, loaded with oats and nuts. Walnuts, though a bit fatty, do more good than harm as they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which keep the arteries healthy and elastic, strengthening the heart as well.
