Apple Crumble

It is finally autumn and all the fun autumn recipes are back on the table. I hope you love autumn as much as I do because then you can look forward to many delicious recipes. At the moment I’m in an apple fever. It really starts in the beginning/middle of September and then comes the pumpkin fever. Since last year I really appreciate the seasons especially now that I’m creating recipes. Every season is very unique and special. I love about autumn the decoration, the changing colors of leaves and simply experiencing nature in a completely different way. Isn’t it nice when the leaves turn into beautiful autumn colors or when you cuddle up at home with a cup of tea and of course enjoy this with a delicious autumn dessert or dinner! I think this Apple Crumble recipe would go perfectly with it. What could be better than combining apples and cinnamon? Baked, the whole thing gets a super delicious consistency and is not heavy in the stomach.

What do you need for a vegan Apple Crumble recipe?

You only need 6 ingredients for this Apple Crumble recipe. That’s why it’s super quick to make. All you have to do is prepare the crumbles and cut the apples into small pieces. But that’s it. That’ s why I can only recommend to try this delicious dessert. You need the following ingredients:

  • Apples
  • Cinnamon
  • Vegan butter
  • Oats
  • Flour (I prefer spelt or whole-grain)
  • Brown Sugar or Agave Syrup
  • EXTRA: ground Walnuts

By the way, you can use other fruits for your crumble. The dish also works well with blueberries, plums, rhubarb or a berry mix.

I love working with oats because it’s healthy and I like the consistency of oats that comes from baking, such as my healthy vegan chocolate oatmeal cookies or vegan baked oatmeal with strawberries.

For a gluten-free alternative simply use a gluten-free flour substitute and gluten-free oats.

Apple Crumble Recipe with Oats – Easy And Delicious

For this Apple Crumble, you need a small casserole dish and a peeler because the most effort is to peel and cut the apples. You’ll also need a mortar or food processor to grind the nuts.

Now just melt the butter and mix it with flour, oats, cinnamon, walnuts, and sugar or agave syrup. Knead the mixture well and form crumbles with your hands. It’s a little bit of a mess but that’s part of the baking process :-))

For an extra kick, add some cinnamon and brown sugar or agave syrup to your apples. Mix the apple pieces well again and add your crumbles. Put it in the oven and your Apple Crumble recipe is ready 🙂 It’s actually quite quick, isn’t it?!

How to store Apple Crumble?

Cover up the Apple Crumble and keep it in the fridge. You can store it in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just heat your Apple Crumble in the microwave and still enjoy it warm.

You can also prepare your Apple Crumble in advance. Just fry the cinnamon apples in a pan and make the crumble. Then keep them separately in the fridge. All you have to do is build it together and heat it up.

Apple Crumble – Serve and enjoy

I love this combination with crumbles, baked apples, and cinnamon so much and I find it goes perfectly with a delicious cup of coffee. You can also serve this recipe with whipped cream. There are already some vegan whipped cream alternatives and they taste very good! A slightly healthier alternative would be to use coconut whipped cream. Unfortunately, I haven’t tried this yet but it’s definitely on my to-do list 🙂 Otherwise, the warm Apple Crumble goes well with a delicious vanilla ice cream and with an extra chocolate drizzle it´s heavenly. Perfect for all chocolate lovers (like me :-D).
