Blackberry Quark Crumble
It´s blackberry time. It does not mean the mobile phone ;-), I tell about the fruit. I harvested 3,5 lb blackberry in the garden. I have frozen one part, eaten some and I baked a crumble. Now there is a little problem. In germany you get quark in every supermarket. It´s a cheap product with 75% protein in it and is almost fat free. It contains 80% casein and 20% milkprotein. I think you have to look for meadow churn quark, curd, white cream or soft cheese. Serves: 12 That you´ll need: 9 oz quark 1 tablespoon protein powder (you can use whey protein or pea protein) 1 half vanilla pod 2 tablespoons xylitol 9 oz blackberry 2 tablespoon shredded coconut 1 teaspoon xylitol ½ teaspoon ceylon cinnamon 9 oz virgin coconut oil protein powder Scrape the core out of the vanilla pod. Mix it well with Quark, xylitol and protein powder. Fill it into a small round baking form. Sprinkle the berries over it. Heat the virgin coconut oil. Mix into shredded coconut, Ceylon cinnamon and xylitol. Let it cool for 15 minutes. It´s allright if you can pluck the dough into crumble. Isn´t it, knead a little bit protein powder under it. Pluck little crumble and spread them all over the berries. Bake them at 356°F for 35 minutes. Serve it hot. You can exchange the fruits. Try blueberries, cherries, strawberries, apple or gooseberries.
