My Healthy Apple Crumble with Greek Yoghurt
Do you LOVE apple crumble too?! It was one of my FAVORITE desserts growing up.
We recently had a dinner party at our house and I dug out the old apple crumble recipe that I used to make yeeeeears ago in high school. It was every bit as yummy as I remembered it to be BUT the recipe included tinned apples, a heap of white sugar, cake flour and margarine!
SOOOO of course I decided to create a new guilt free version and to be honest I much prefer the new version compared to the original. There is just something super rewarding in knowing that not only are you satisfying your sweet tooth but your are nourishing your precious body too… WIN-WIN!
Serves 4 – 6
- 6 medium apples of your choice, cored, skin left on and chopped.
- 1 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 cup oat flour, gluten free if possible
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 1/2 tbsp honey/maple syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 2 tablespoons filtered water
- Serve with Greek yoghurt, cream, nuts, cinnamon, honey, ginger… The options are endless!
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Pour two tablespoons of filtered water in a saucepan. Begin to slowly preheat the pan on a medium heat.
- Rinse, dry, core and chop your apples into bite-sized pieces. Place pieces into the pre-heated saucepan, cover with the lid and cook for about 10 minutes – until the apples have softened.
- Butter/grease the bottom of a tart/oven proof dish of your choice and add the softened apples. Sprinkle some extra cinnamon over the apples and set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the crumble ingredients together – melted coconut oil, honey, almond flour, oat flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix until well combined and crumb-like. The consistency will be fairly sticky BUT if it is too liquidy (and you cannot crumble the mixture with you hands) then add a little more almond/oat flour.
- Crumble the topping mixture over the apples and bake for 20 – 30 minutes (until golden). Take care to pay attention towards the end so that the crumble does not burn.
- Serve with a dollop of Greek yoghurt or other toppings of your choice.
