Coeliac Awareness Week Recipe: Gluten Free Apple and Rhubarb Oaty Crumble

We’ve sadly come to the end of Coeliac Awareness Week (sob!).

But what better way to round things off than with the ULTIMATE British pudding?

This is a dessert that has stood the test of time. A family favourite throughout the years, it will always leave you with a full belly and a warm heart!

This recipe serves 4 and utilises our very own Gluten Free Oats.

Info: If rhubarb isn’t in season, add a couple of extra apples to the filling and skip steps 1 and 2 (you don’t need to heat up the apples before baking as they’re much sweeter than rhubarb).
