Apple & blackberry crumble

Vegan, wheat-free, gluten-free, low sugar

What do you think of when you hear the word autumn/fall?
I think warm, hearty foods with spicy undertones, fresh berries and apples!
Apple crumble is a classic Christmasy dessert. It consists of an apple base topped off with a crumble.

This recipe is very simple to make and tastes utterly divine!
The apple base is moist with spicy tones, along with sweetness from the maple syrup. The crumble is yummy with a hint of cinnamon and nuts for added protein and texture!

Preparation- 5 minutes
Baking- 40-50 minutes
Serves- 4-6

Ingredients for the filling
-6 medium apples (sliced)
-1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
-1/2 a lemon (juice)
-2 teaspoons of corn starch
-Pinch of salt
-1/4 cup of maple syrup

Ingredients for the crumble
-130g of gluten-free oats
-35g of dairy-free margarine/butter
-12g of pecan nuts (ground)
-12g of walnuts (ground)
-1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
-1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
-1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
-2 tablespoons of coconut sugar
-1 cup of blackberries

To serve
-Dairy-free ice-cream or custard
-Pecans & walnuts
-Fresh berries

Step 1- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and wash 6 apples.

Step 2- In a mixing bowl, combine the apple, cinnamon, lemon juice, corn starch, salt & maple syrup.
Toss until fully coated.
Step 3- Place the apple mixture into a pie dish and set aside whilst you make the crumble topping.
Step 4- Place all of the crumble ingredients into a mixing bowl.
Step 5- With clean hands, rub the mixture between your fingers to create a crumble.

Step 6- Scatter some blackberries over the apples, then sprinkle the crumble over the top!
Step 7- Carefully pop the dish into the oven and allow to bake for 40-60 minutes or until the top begins to turn golden brown.

Step 8- Serve warm with dairy-free ice-cream or custard!
You can even enjoy this crumble with some fresh berries, for extra flavour & added colour.
