This crumble is the perfect recipe for any fall dinner party, or even as a great end to your day as you cuddle up with your family or loved ones. It’s even healthy enough to eat for breakfast, so you can start your day with this treat guilt free.

 

We’ve revamped the classic apple crumble to include berries, and to be both dairy free and low in refined sugar. It can easily be made gluten free as well. Naturally sweetened from the fruit, full of filling-fiber from the oats and heart-healthy fatsfrom almond flour, this recipe is something that both your body AND your tastebuds will thank you for.

Here’s what you’ll need:

For the filling:

  • 4 medium apples, peeled and cored, and sliced into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar (if you don’t have coconut sugar, use brown sugar)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger

For the crumble topping:

  • 1 cup rolled oats (gluten free if needed)
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ⅓ cup crushed pecans
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

What you need to do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F. In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the fruit filling. Spread them into a 9×9 pan, and set it aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, almond flour, pecans, and cinnamon. Pour in the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla, and mix until all the dry ingredients are covered with the wet mixture.
  3. Sprinkle the crumble topping over the top of the fruit in the pan.
  4. Bake for 35–40 minutes until the crumble is golden brown.
  5. After taking the crumble out of the oven, let it sit for 5–10 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired, or with a dollop of Greek yogurt.
  6. And most importantly, enjoy! 🙂
