Banana and Blueberry Crumble

This is one of those recipes that I made up on the spot. On Sunday we had organised to have a nut roast, but what’s a roast without a crumble for dessert? The only fruit we had in was Banana and Blueberries. This crumble is moist and sweet – and went down well with my partner and friend! I hope you enjoy it too!
