This is how your Protein Crumble is going to be perfect
Crumb cookies can be translated as lazy cakes. You can make crumble in minutes. You just need your crumbled dough and almost any fruit, and then it can go to the oven.
Even as a beginner, you can not fail, because it is so simple that even a child can make it.
What Do You Need for Your Protein Crumble?
Look for a fireproof bowl or pie tin, or several small puffy tins or bowls. The crumbs require only some stevia (optional), protein powder and oats, almost any kind of fruit. You can even use frozen berries or canned fruits.
Why Is Crumble the Cheapest Cake?
First of all, you need to know that crumbles are British cookies. In the last century, the British people did not want to waste their flour, sugar, and butter during wartime. (as the original crumble recipes require) to make a traditional cake pasta. So, they invented crumble.
I have created a healthy version of the original crumble recipe.
This is an easy protein crumble recipe which is so good that you would never guess it is actually without any sugar and just a mixture of protein and carbs. It is perfect as a high protein, healthy, and gluten-free breakfast or a snack in the afternoon.
High Protein Berry Crumble Recipe:
This crumble tastes like you are eating a cake, but it is healthy for you!
It is perfect as a breakfast, dessert, or even a snack. It is delicious, it is worth it! It is pretty much the perfect crumble recipe.
I usually make my fitness protein crumble with berries like raspberries or blueberries, mixed berries, but almost any type of berries could work. I always have some bag of frozen berries in my fridge, so I can make this protein crumble whenever I would love to.
With just a few ingredients and easy steps, this recipe may just become your favorite.
How to make my high protein berry crumble: (Only 6 ingredients)
- Preheat the oven to 350F (180C).
- Place the berries in a small crumble oven dish.
(I always use this- Small Ceramic Bowl
(Chef’s Note: You can sprinkle the berries a little stevia on top.)
- Mix the Protein Powder, oats, and lemon juice. It will be pretty dry, but do not worry!
- Chop the almonds or any king of dried fruit into small pieces and mix them the the crumble.
(Chef’s Note: It is worth to use sugar-free protein powder!)
- Spread the crumble “dough” on the top the berries.
- Bake for 15 min, then set the oven to broil and bake them for another 1-2 minutes until the top gets golden color.
- Take out of the and let is cool slightly.

No more sugar, more protein!
My secret to making this healthy crumble is to avoid sugar and use protein powder instead. Maybe it sounds weird, but protein powder is great for baking. It has sweetness and flavor which is good for your lazy cake.
I use Met-rx Vanilla Protein Powder, because it keeps its consistency when heated.
If you will serve this high protein berry crumble for your guests or family, I am sure that no one will suspect up that it is a healthy version of a normal crumble. If you don’t care much about the macros, you can use oat flour instead of protein powder.
(Chef’s Note: In this case, you are better to use a little regular vanilla or vanilla extract to get the flavor and the sweetness.)
You are also free to use vegan protein powder to make the recipe vegan.
Watch out! Your Crumble Shouldn’t Be Too Big!
If you are planning to make protein crumble for your guests, rather than tripling the recipe to create one huge crumble, I recommend making multiple small ones. If you make a large crumble, the berries inside will be overcooked before the crumble is done.
How to Storage Your Protein Crumbles?
Crumbles are not getting along with keeping them for a long time. If you would like to store them, the top will be soggy and nothing will crunch in your mouth anymore.
But since this is such an easy recipe to make them, it is not a big thing to make more if you are in that.
