Mmmm Mmmmm is all I have to say about this recipe! I had a craving for a good apple crumble minus the sugary syrup versions I have eaten in the past. Apples, cinnamon and a good oat topping is what I was looking for. I also didn't want to have a pool of butter hanging out at the bottom of my bowl when I was done eating. Clean, simple and bursting with sweet apples is what I set out to create!
The oat topping adds natural sweetness from the coconut flakes and pecans. Adding in the nuts helps give this apple crumble a nice texture and a natural buttery flavor.
This recipe came together extremely quickly and hit my sweet tooth! I can't wait to sub the apples for cherries or peaches the next time I make this!!
Makes 4 small servings
- 2 apples ( 1 Granny Smith, 1 Gala), diced
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon almond flour
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 tablespoon pecans, chopped
- 1 tablespoon coconut flakes
- 2 cups of your favorite dairy-free ice cream ( I like vanilla bean coconut ice cream!)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together apples, cinnamon and honey. Pour into an ungreased 8x8 baking dish. In another bowl, combine oats, flour, honey, oil, pecans and coconut flakes.
Pour over the top of the apples and bake for 25 minutes or until apples are soft. If you find that your apples are still hard, cover with foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve with ice cream and enjoy!
