Ground red quinoa and almonds topped gooseberry crumble with banana cashew ice-cream 🍨

β€’11 Replies

Hi everyone,

I made this nut crumble to have with some ice cream I wanted to test. I used my coffee grinder to make a coarse quinoa meal. Using 75g with 50g ground almonds 25g flaked almonds, 75g coconut oil and 30g coconut sugar all whizzed up and spread on top of 500g gooseberries and baked.

Here's a link for the ice cream recipe:

Ali has asked if you can make quinoa flour and the answer is yes...I love healthy treats...😊

Way to go, Jerry! :-) It looks fantastic and quinoa needs to be with the ice cream! Just my humble opinion! :-)

Would it be okay to use a substitute for the banana?

Jerry in reply to Activity2004

Hi Leah, peaches are a good substitute on their own or with blueberries or strawberries. I'm going to make some strawberry ice cream soon so watch this space...😊

Fantastic! Can’t wait!πŸ˜€πŸ‘

did you grind up uncooked quinoa? if so did you soak it?

looks yummy - I love a crumble

Thanks sunny369, I just put dry quinoa in my coffee grinder and whizzed it into a coarse meal.

I can buy quinoa flour but the shop doesn't always stock it so I grind my own and quinoa seed is 1/2 the price of the flour.

I love crumbles too as they're so easy to make and taste good...😊

that's interesting, for some reason I was under the impression it had to be cooked or sprouted, so good to know.


Brillant Jerry, that looks fantastic and healthy as well

Thanks Debs and I like healthy treats...😊
