Step 1

Preheat oven to 180C
Peel and core the apples and chop into chunks. Peel and grate the parsnip and place it, along with the apple, into a small ovenproof dish. Combine the tablespoon of flour, sugar, cinnamon and ginger and sprinkle it over the apples and parsnips, mixing until coated. Sprinkle a tablespoon of water over it all.

Step 2

In a large bowl mix together the porridge oats, flour and sugar. Add the butter and rub it into the flour mixture with your fingertips until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

Step 3

Pour the crumble mixture over the filling and bake in the oven for approximately 40 minutes or until the crumble is golden and the filling is soft.
