Spiced Mango coconut whole wheat oat crumble

There were lots of mangoes in my fridge… courtesy my granny. I keep wondering how all grand moms can be so loving... and they all have warmth of a huge mug of hot chocolate … I wanted to bake with Mangoes and dint want to do a huge cake... So it was time to put my beautiful ramekins to use, out came the ramekins and an hour later, some warm mango crumble. Here is how I made it.
For the crumble

1 cup of whole wheat flour
½ cup butter chilled and cubed
½ cup damerara sugar
½ cup oats
Mix all the above crumble ingredients and rub with the finger tips to resemble coarse bread crumbs and chill while you prepare the fruit.
For the fruit base
2 medium mangoes peeled and diced to bite sized pieces
Large pinch of cinnamon
Large pinch of nutmeg
6 table spoons of freshly scraped coconut
3 tablespoons of brown/ damerara sugar (Avoid if your mango is very sweet... like mine was)
Mix the spices and coconut with the fruit , place about 2 tablespoons of mixture in a lightly buttered each ramekin, then add 2 tablespoons of the crumble on the top and bake in 108 degree preheated oven for about 25 minutes/ till the crumble is golden brown. This mix will make 8 ramekins of mango crumble... Serve warm with whipped cream/ice cream.
