Apple and Feijoa Shortcake Crumble Slice

Apple & Feijoa Shortcake Crumble Slice:-

Makes: 12 slices
Prep: 20 mins
Bake: 35 mins
Ingredients:
Base:
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (or cashews would work as well)
1/2 cup of arrowroot or tapioca flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
4 Tblsp Sweetnz Premium or Classic Blend
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla powder (or essence)
100g butter or 1/2 cup of coconut oil (if dairy free)
3 eggs

Filling:
4 apples (green is best)
1 cup chopped feijoas
2 Tbsp water
6 - 8 Drops of Sweetnz stevia drops

Crumble:
1/4 cup desiccated coconut (use either shredded or sliced and blitz as desiccated coconut has most of the oil taken out)
1 Tbsp arrowroot or tapioca flour
1 Tbsp almond meal

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 180 degree and line a baking tray with baking paper. Around 250 x 250
2. Peel and core apples, then chop into 2cm chunks and add to a pot.
3. Scoop out the insides of the feijoas, until you have approx. a cup (around 10-12 medium sides feijoas). Dice the feijoas and add to pot with apple.
4. Add water to the pot and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for a couple of minutes, until the apple softens a little, but still has a bite to it.
5. Drain excess water from fruit and then add around 6 - 8 drops of Sweetnz Stevia drops (vanilla, lemon, pure, caramel would all work) and stir to combine.
6. Into the bowl of a food processor, place the dry base ingredients (almond meal, sunflower seeds, arrowroot/tapioca, coconut flour, Sweetnz blend, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and vanilla). Pulse until sunflower seeds have formed a flour. 
7. Add the melted butter (or coconut oil if dairy free), and eggs and pulse to combine.
8. Transfer 3/4 of the mixture into your lined tray and flatten with back of a spoon.
9. Spread the apple and feijoa mix over the top of the base. Set aside.
10. To form the crumble, add the desiccated coconut, extra arrowroot and almond flour to the remaining base mixture in the food processor. It should now be a consistency you're able to crumble over top. You can continue to add extra coconut flour if not crumbly enough.
11. Place in the oven for 35 minutes or until crumble is starting to brown.

Enjoy hot or cold, with a cup of tea or your favourite yoghurt or ice cream.
