Pear, Blueberry, Ginger & Barley Crumble…

Fancy making this Pear, Blueberry, Ginger & Barley Crumble?

A simple, seasonal crumble using barley flakes instead of oats. The barley adds a crunchy, nutty flavour and is the star of the whole grain, seeded topping.

Get creative with your fruit filling, depending on the season, and/or make the crumble gluten-free by substituting with oat flour.
