Apple and Cranberry Crumble in the ActiFry

Eating healthy and maintaining a healthy diet is very important in our lives, that does not mean that we give up eating all the foods that we enjoy eating. It is rather about cooking the foods we love in a healthier way and eating more fresh vegetables, incorporating fibres into our diet and reducing the amount of processed and junk food we eat.You can enjoy a really healthy meal that is low in fat and cooked to perfection using Tefal ActiFry. All you need is one spoon of oil and the ActiFry to cook chips, curries, stews, stir fries and desserts.
The ActiFry works on a patented hot air pulse system and consists of a stirring paddle which rotates the food to assist in cooking. The fryer is easy to clean as the centre cooking pan and paddle are removable and are dishwasher safe. The ActiFry has a digital timer which is easy to set and use.

The ActiFry is versatile and you can cook simple chips, potato wedges, curries, risotto to jams and desserts. It is available in various sizes so it can be useful for a couple or for a family too. 

The ActiFry I have is the 1 kg capacity and it’s perfect for a family of four .For more details of dimensions and product details click here.
I am really enjoying cooking and experimenting in my Actifry and I will share some of my recipes here each week.

I tried this simple Apple crumble recipe in my ActiFry and it was delicious and healthy too.

  1. I have a few friends who loves cooking I bet he knows The ActiFry. Amazing product!

    1. Its agreat gadget for those wanting to eat and cook healthy.

  2. I needed to read you blog today, simply to find this quote: "Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to motivate.”

    That being said, the apple cranberry crumble recipe looks to die for..... I am sure it can be prepared using conventional methods, yes? YUM!

    1. @Kandas Yes the apple filling can be made on the stove top or microwave too.

  3. My boyfriend has wanted an ActiFry for ages! They do look and sound really good! Your recipe sounds perfect for this time of year :) xo

    1. Megan, its a good investment and you won't be disappointed and its safer than a deep fat fryer and healthier too.

  4. That's a handy piece of kitchen equipment, Nayna:) And love the crumble topping, with coconut and almond flakes...Delicious!

    1. I am loving my actifry now I can eat foods that would normally be fried and not feel guilty like chips.

  5. Oh yummy! These Actifry's look great x

  6. The apple and cranberry crumble looks heavenly!! And making it in the ActiFry means that you don't have to full guilty about the calories.

  7. Hello Nayna,

    The fryer looks like a good way to cook food fast, and the apple crumble looks yummy! A full meal deal, here :-)

    In peace and passion,

    1. Laurie its great for cooking recipes as you use very little oil, its great for stirfies , ships and cooked breakfast like sausages etc

  8. I dont have an actifry and dont think I need one but Im definitely going to be making crumble this weekend now and for that m'lady.... I thank you ;)

    1. Ryan, you can make the apple filling on stove top or microwave. only advantage of actifry is that it uses very little fat , you will see from recipe I used 1 teaspoon of butter only.

  9. I hadn't heard of the Actifry but it looks great!

    1. Beth, something that makes lovely chips with 1 tablespoon oil must be a great gadget don't you think???

  10. Interesting product. The recipe looks delish, though I'd have to find a replacement for the wheat, since I only eat gluten-free. Any suggestions? Also, I'm not sure what the plus is on using the ActiFry. Quicker?

    1. Beth you can replace the shredded wheat with organic oats, just toast them slightly in a dry pan and follow recipe.

  11. I've never put anything sweet in mine...time to start I think! :)

  12. I have only ever considered a fryer for chips!

  13. The actifry sounds really great! And the crumple is just crummylicious :)

  14. The Actifry sounds amazing, so many people seem to have them x

  15. haven't heard of the actifry but it sounds good! SO does the crumble...

  16. I hadnt realised they were such a versatile bit of kit! Recipe sounds yummy!

  17. Sounds like a much healthier and cleaner alternative to doing it on the stove-top. Btw, I love the way your crumble is presented. Here in Canada apple crumble is known as apple crisp, while crisps are called chips, chips are fries... *throws up hands in exasperation*

  18. Wow, fried crumble - sounds divine! This looks like a healthier way to cook some of the more indulgent foods.

  19. I've wanted one of these for so long. I'm doing slimming world and so many people use the actifry for slimming world recipes, but mainly for slimming world chips! I must add one to my 'must have soon' list!

  20. I can't wait to get an Actifry now, I think I might start pestering my husband more now!

  21. I have been looking at these but just wonder if it will end up in a cupboard after a few goes!

  22. Will try this once I get an actifry.

  23. Sounds great, I really want an actifry and this would be perfect to try in it!

  24. I've wanted an actifry for healthier fry ups but now I want it even more as you can do so much more!!!

  25. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who has been conducting a little research on this.
    And he in fact ordered me lunch simply because I found it for
    him... lol. So allow me to reword this....
