It is my first time posting here, but I thought I would offer a apple crumble recipe that I used to make in high school (with assistance, due to the fact I am half blind) and now make every christmas for my family.



3-4 Bramley Apples (cored, peeled and sliced)
5-6 plain digestive biscuits or chocolate (plain works best)
brown or white sugar
maple syrup (optional)

Equipment Needed

A peeling knife
A apple corer
A rolling pin
A plastic bag
A bowl or square tin suitable for the oven


1) peel and slice the apples, and put into a bowl or tin.

2) Put the 5 or 6 digestive biscuits into a plastic bag, and hit them with a rolling pin till it makes them into crumbs.

3) Sprinkle the sugar and biscuits over the apples. Add maple syrup if you choose too (only a few drops).

4) cook for 30 mins in a gas mark four oven.

Con: requires use of a food-processor or blender, which can be hard for those of us with noise sensitivity.

Pro: minimal prep, lasts indefinitely in the freezer, takes only a few minutes to make, no cooking required, compatible with a very wide range of special dietary requirements, is mysterious food alchemy.

Taken from Instructables: 1-Ingredient Ice Cream:

Take a banana or bananas, peel, chop into chunks, then put in a bag in the freezer.

When desired, take out your frozen banana chunks, put them in a food processor, and blend them.

The result is amazingly creamy in texture, and way sweeter than regular banana, for reasons I cannot fathom.

I don't eat a lot of sugar, and I actually find the result too sweet; I'm going to be experimenting with blending in extra ingredients, including other fruits or cocoa powder.

ETA: If you need/want to take a supplement that's in powder form, blending it in seems to work very well (I tried this with a scoop of whey protein).

ETA2: If you are okay with dairy, blending in some Greek yoghurt is amazingly delicious.
