Tropical Fruit Crumble Recipe

Healthy group dessert

Tropical Fruit Crumble is essentially a fancy and more elaborate version of oatmeal that is easy to share and great for feeding a big group.  All you have to do to make this dessert is:

  1. Boil Water
  2. Soak dried tropical fruit
  3. Add oats and dry seasoning
  4. Cook on low for 5 minutes
  5. Top with granola and serve to hungry friends

The best gear for cooking

We used a Sea to Summit X-Pot on a JetBoil Base Camp Half Gen Stove.  The X-Pot folds small to fit in a pack, but expands to a large sturdy bowl that works perfect for executing this recipe.  The lid on the X-Pot brings the water to a boil faster so you’re not wasting precious fuel.  The Half Gen’s temperature control allowed us to boil and simmer, plus it is durable enough to support the weight of the full X-Pot.
