Apple pie and apple crumble are my favourite apple recipes, but with the all the sugar and butter in a traditional recipe, they are definitely quite indulgent (still delicious though!). This recipe is a healthier twist on a traditional apple crumble. It's lighter, still satisfying, and healthy enough that you could probably have it for breakfast as well!
Ingredients (4-6 servings):
For the apple base:
-5 medium apples, peeled and chopped into bite sized pieces
-2 tbsp of sugar (You may want to use an extra tbsp for tart apples)
-1 tsp of cinnamon
-1 1/2 tbsp of cornstarch
For the oat topping:
-3/4 cup of rolled oats
-1/4 cup almond flour
-1/4 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts
-2 tbsp of maple syrup
-2 tbsp of coconut oil (not melted)
-1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, combine everything in the "apple base" and set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together all the ingredients in the "oat topping". It should be crumbly- do not over-mix!
In a baking dish, spray a little bit of a neutral oil to coat. Add your apple mixture to the dish and spread it out in an even layer.
Take the oat mixture and sprinkle it in an even layer, over the apples.
Bake fore 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the apples are tender.
Once it is out of the oven, allow it to cool for about 10 minutes.
This is best enjoyed warm, and with some vanilla bean ice cream!
