Yesterday I got a big bag of apples from my parents’ garden. More than we would probably be able to eat before they go bad. So why not use some of them to make a tasty dessert? (Besides, desserts are usually my go-to move). I ended up making an absolutely delicious apple crumble today to bring to my sister’s place. And it came out great! Everyone loved it!
It’s really not hard to make a quick crumble without all the sugar, wheat and fat. And you won’t even know the difference. The key is to use a sweet type of apples so you won’t need to sweeten them at all. Try this with other types of fruit too, like pears, plums etc. It’s so quick to throw together and doesn’t even take long in the oven. Not to mention affordable. A serious win-win!
Ingredients: (serves about 8)
2 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tbsp coconut sugar (optional)
1 cup / 2 deciliters of old-fashioned oats
1 cup / 2 deciliters of hazelnuts
10 pitted dates
1/2 cup / 1 deciliter of water
1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder
1/2 tsp salt
Grease a pie tray with a neutral flavor oil, like coconut oil. Peel the apples and finely dice them. Transfer to the tray and add the cinnamon and coconut sugar (if using). Mix it all well with your hands.
Put the dates in a blender with the water and blend until smooth. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients and stir in the date mix. Then spread it out evenly on the apples. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 F / 175 C.
Serve with vegan vanilla ice cream, vegan whipped cream or whatever you prefer!
