2 tablespoons maple syrup
110g coconut flour
1 egg, beaten
50ml unsweetened almond milk
1. Preheat the grill to its highest setting.
2. Place the blackberries and raspberries in a saucepan with 30ml water and add the maple syrup. Bring to the boil and cook for 2–3 minutes, then turn down the heat and simmer for 4–5 minutes (so the berries keep their shape).
3. Meanwhile, mix the coconut flour with the egg and almond milk and break the mixture up so it resembles a crumble.
4. Divide the cooked berries, reserving the juices, between four ovenproof serving bowls and top with the crumble mix. Drizzle over a little more maple syrup and place under a hot grill for 3–4 minutes or so, being careful not to burn. Serve warm with a drizzle of the reserved berry juice.
