Gluten Free Flaxseed Meal Crumble
Diet Info: DF GF F LF Na LS VG V Fa
Crumbles are rich and delicious toppings for fresh fruit desserts. I wanted to make crumble topping for my Mango Crumble recipe when I realized that few of my guests will need gluten free options. So I made this delicious nutty, crunchy and much healthy Flax meal Chickpea Flour crumble. Try this recipe and you will never make crumble traditional way again. It was The Treat for not only my friends on gluten free diet but others as well. I have used olive oil, chickpea flour and Jaggery (or palm sugar) to make this crumble.

    3. Now add ground jaggery and mix well. Add chopped nuts. Transfer the mixture to an oven safe container. Finish cooking by baking at 350 degree F for 10 minutes. Or you can directly add it as topping on your fruit crumble pie, top it with some chuncks of butter (for extra richness) and then bake as per time needed for your fruit pie.
Savita's Notes:
Flaxseed Meal is great way to add omega-3s to your diet. So make this crumble and even if you donot want to use it for fruit Pie, just store it in air tight container at room temprature and have 2-3 tbsp with milk for good health.
