Preheat oven to 180C/350F Gas 4 or 170C Fan Oven.
1 Cut the apple into bitesize chunks and place in a non stick saucepan along with the blackberries. Add some boiling water and the tablespoon of caster sugar and heat until the apples are soft but have some bite.
2 While thats cooking, mix the flour and cooking margarine in a mixing bowl and sift it through your fingers until it resembles a breadcrumb consistency.
3 Add the 2 tablespoons of demarara sugar to the pasty mix and stir in well.
4 Place the warmed fruit into the greased oven proof dish and cover with the pastry mix.
5 Level the pastry mix with a fork and add a tablespoon of demarara sugar to the topping.
6 Finally add some oats over the top of the dish. Most coeliacs are not allergic to oats if they are not eaten everyday (Source: Coeliacs Society).
