Leading a healthy lifestyle is all about balance, and balance means enjoying life’s little luxuries such as this delicious Pear and Apple Crumble. It’s perfect for warming tummies on a cold day and – while the apple and pear combination is excellent – it can be made using several combinations of fruit such as mixed berries (strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and cherries). An easy dessert with ingredients you probably have on hand.
