Healthy Apple Crumble



Healthy Apple Crumble serves 6-8


10 small apples (7ish larger ones)

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract


1 cup oats (quinoa flakes can be used if gluten free option needed)

1 cup puffed millet or quinoa

1 cup almond meal

1 cup LSA

3tblsp butter (3 tblsp coconut oil can be used if dairy free option needed)

1/3 cup olive oil

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

2tblsp raw sugar (can be replaced with xylitol or stevia to taste)

The key to this dish really is the apples. Try to find the best quality apples you can. Ideally they are fresh off the farm and organic. You will be blown away by how delicious they are!


Wash, chop and core the apples into even, chunky slices. I prefer to keep the skin on the apples, but if this is a family dish for young toddlers, you will need to peel them too. Place onto a pot and almost fill with boiling water. Cook for around 10 minutes until apples are soft but not ‘mooshy’.

While the apples cook, make the crumble. In a large bowl, put all the dry ingredients; oats, puffed millet or quinoa, almond meal, LSA, sugar (or alternative) and cinnamon. Melt the butter (or coconut oil) and combine with vanilla and olive oil. Make a well in the dry mixture and fill with the butter/oil. Using your clean hands, mix the dry ingredients with the wet and rub them together in your fingers. The mix should clump together in your hands and forms ‘crumbles’. 

When apples are cooked strain them and then mix in cinnamon and vanilla. Pour the apples into a medium sized baking dish. Cover them in the crumble.  Bake on 160C for 40 minutes, or until golden on top. Enjoy while still warm with a dollop of yogurt. This dish makes winter worthwhile and makes the whole house smell tasty!! YUM!
