Ingredients for oatmeal crumble pie with apple and quince
25 g of cane sugar
1 cup of oatmeal
3/4 cup wholewheat flour
100 g butter
100 g of walnuts
5-6 tablespoons of honey
Clean the quince from seeds and chop in a blender. Then transfer in a pot with a little water, nutmeg and cane sugar and cook over low heat for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally and add water as needed to prevent it from getting burnt. During that time, wash, clean and cut the apples.
In a separate bowl, mix the oatmeal, flour, cinnamon, honey, a pinch of salt and diced butter. In a baking tray lined with baking paper, pour apples sprinkled with cinnamon, boiled quince, the oatmeal mixture and crumble walnuts on top.
Bake at 200 oC for 40-50 minutes.
If you use gluten free flour the pie is as well gluten free.
