Berry, Buckwheat & Hazelnut Crumble with Fresh Mint

September 4 2014


I've made many crumbles in my time, but never with buckwheat flour. It was a success and I'm excited to share the recipe with you.

I've paired this buckwheat crumble topping with fresh strawberries, blackberries, and a sprinkling of fresh mint. The tartness of the berries and the freshness of the mint play nicely with the nutty earthiness of the buckwheat and hazelnuts. The combination is delightful!

I like to serve it warm with fresh organic cream, but you could also serve it with yoghurt or a dairy-free alternative like coconut yoghurt.
