Gluten Free & Refined Sugar Free Apple Crumble

Apple crumble has to be one of my all-time favourite desserts. It brings back memories of Christmas with my grandparents in England, following an amazing dinner cooked by my grandmother where my grandfather and I would fight over who would get the skin of the custard. Because of my recent health choices I hadn’t had anything that resembled apple crumble for quite some time – that is, until I came across http://www.realfoodwholelife.c…

Robyn’s recipe for what she calls an apple crisp has minimal ingredients and is easy to make. It is also DELICIOUS! I decided not to make the salted caramel as it already seemed to have more than enough sugar.


For Apples:

6 cups 1-inch chopped apples (skin on is fine)

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

¼ cup coconut sugar

½ teaspoon cinnamon

For Crisp:

⅓ cup melted coconut oil

2 cups almond flour

½ cup coconut sugar

½ cup pecans, chopped

¼ teaspoon kosher or sea salt

To make the base, just mix the apples, lemon juice, sugared cinnamon in a cooking dish.

Separately, mix the other ingredientes and then sprinkle them over the apples, patting it all down gently.

Cover the dish in aluminum foil and place in the oven (at about 190 degrees celsius) for 45 minutes and then remove the foil and leave for another 15 minutes or until the crumble turns brown. Then allow to cool down a bit and serve with some dairy free ice cream. Enjoy!
