Is there anything better than the smell of a hot apple crumble wafting through the house on a cold wintery night?!
We love baked fruit desserts as they are full of natural, real food ingredients are and one of the easiest desserts to turn into a clean and healthy addition to a family feast.
We've kept our apple crumble grain, gluten, dairy & refined sugar free, using our Primal Muesli instead of oats for an extra crunchy and crumbly topping - this won't last long once it's out of the oven!
- 5 medium granny smith apples - peeled, cored & diced 2cm cubes
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 2 tbs lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup Primal Muesli
- 1 cup almond meal or buckwheat flour (your preference)
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 3 tbs coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla paste
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- coconut yoghurt to serve
Combine diced apples, 1/3 cup coconut sugar, lemon juice & 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon in a saucepan.
Place over a low heat until apples start to release their juices. Stir and simmer for 20 minutes until the apples have softened. You should able to just get a fork through them.
Pour into an oven safe pie dish and set aside.
Preheat oven to 180C.
To make your crumble topping, add your Primal Muesli to a food processor and pulse to make a coarse crumb. This will give you a more traditional crumble topping texture - you can skip this part if you prefer a chunkier topping.
In a bowl, combine muesli crumb, almond meal or buckwheat flour, coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla paste and cinnamon and mix well. You should have a wet, crumbly mix.
Spread your crumble topping evenly over your apples and bake in the oven for 30 - 40minutes until your topping is golden brown and your apples are bubbly around the sides.
Leave to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Top with a dollop of coconut yoghurt your favourite ice cream if you're feeling like a real treat.
