Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 200 grams dried figs, quartered
  • 150 grams dried apricots
  • 100 grams sultanas
  • 100 grams pitted dates, roughly chopped (approx 5 dates)
  • 100 ml Barker’s of Geraldine Lite Blackcurrant Syrup
  • 400 ml water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100 grams plain flour
  • 50 grams rolled oats
  • 100 grams brown sugar
  • 100 grams butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 50 grams hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 50 grams silvered almonds

  5. Place crumble over the top of the fruit mix and baked in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until brown.
  6. Carefully remove the breakfast crumble from the oven, and set aside to cool slightly whilst you make the blackcurrant yoghurt.
  7. Mix 1 Tbsp Barker’s of Geraldine Lite Blackcurrant Syrup to 300 grams of yoghurt until fully incorporated.
  8. Evenly dish out the blackcurrant breakfast crumble into 4 bowls and serve with blackcurrant yoghurt.

  • Sounds delicious!


  • Sounds very healthy though I’ve never heard of the “Barker’s of Geraldine” brand


  • Sounds so healthy and delicious. The thing I like about making my own breakfast cereal is that you know exactly what is in it. In a perfect world I would like to always make my own but when time is poor I reach for the pre-bought variety but if you purchase from the health food shop it is not that bad for you.


  • Crumbles are a much loved breakfast and desert in our house. I never use syrup over the already sweet fruits and prefer to make the crumble topping sugar free. I would also be careful with so many dried fruits as the sugar content is very high, making it a less healthy breakfast choice.


  • Looks and sounds like a fab way to start off the day.


  • This sounds like a lovely idea!


  • Looks and sounds delicious but I’m happy enough with my Coles-brand Toasted Muesli that I add yoghurt and fresh blueberries to.


  • Lovely recipe, thank you so much


  • What a delicious breakkie/brunch idea. Love all the flavours and textures in it.


  • This sure packs a punch with nutrition and flavour, thanks!


  • Sounds tasty Thankyou


  • Looks lovely, I’ll be putting in an order for Mother’s Day!


  • I’m keeping the crumble topping for further use.


  • Quite a lot of ingredients indeed. But it looks very simple to prepare. :-)


  • My first thought is that this looks and sounds amazing, but then I get to thinking there are so many ingredients. I’ll happy just buy it!
