For the crumble topping:

  • 1 tsp light brown sugar
  • 15g porridge oats (if you have a gluten intolerance ensure they are from a gluten free production source)
  • 50g canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained

For the Fruit mix:

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • zest and juice of one lime
  • 1 large fresh fig
  • 1 large ripe pear


Peel the pear, remove any core if there is any and dice into 1cm cubes and add to a small sauce pan with the lime juice and zest and 1 tablespoon of water. Roughly chop the fresh fig, discarding the stalk and add to the saucepan. Gently cook for 5-10 minutes until tender but not mushy and remove from the heat.

Preheat the oven to 190C, 375F, gas mark 5.

Stir the vanilla extract into the fruit mix and then divide the mixture between two ovenproof ramekin dishes.

Add the porridge oats, brown sugar and chickpeas to a bowl and mash using a fork until the mixture resembles a crumble. Divide the crumble topping between the two ramekins and place in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot or cold.
