Quick Fruit Crumble

I'm having a bit of a cookbook cull, sorting through the books I rarely use and treasuring the ones which I use all the time. Weight Watchers Cook Smart Family Food is one of the oldest cookbooks I  own and one of the bookmarked diet cookbooks that I use. A few lazy Sundays ago, I fancied a warming crumble, but without the calories. It would be impossible to make a pudding with 0 calories, but this crumble is actually very fruity and only contains 240 calories per serving. This crumble is incredibly quick as it uses tinned peaches as the main fruit, but you can swap this for tinned fruit cocktail if you wish. From start to finish this crumble will be ready in around 30 minutes and as it's lighter on the waistline, you could treat yourself to a second helping. 

1 x 420g can peaches in natural juice drained
1 ripe banana, sliced thinly
50g low fat polyunsaturated margarine
100g plain white flour
1 tablespoon light brown soft sugar
2 tablespoons porridge oats
freshly grated nutmeg

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/ 190C/ Fan Oven 170C
Tip the canned fruit into a medium size baking dish - chop the fruit if necessary. Mix in the banana sliced.
Place the margarine, flour and sugar in a food processor and whizz until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the porridge oats. Spoon this topping over the fruit and sprinkle over nutmeg.
Place the dish on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the topping is lightly browned.
