Filly's Favourite Apple Crumble

Jun 24, 2020

We have three scrumptious apple trees in our garden, all with different varieties. They all bloom and ripen in stages, which means we have six glorious months of organic, homegrown apples. This makes me smile. A lot.

Needless to say we have been eating apple-everything. Apple crumble has been our #1. I've experimented with lots of topping varieties, and this is by far my fav!

Filly's Favourite Apple Crumble


  • 1 kg of apples, peeled and cored
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • ½ cup rolled gluten-free oats
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • ¼ cup cacao nibs
  • ⅓ cup flaked almonds
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 100g coconut oil


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  • Thinly slice apples and place in an ovenproof dish.
  • In another bowl, place all other ingredients and mix until the consistency of bread crumbs. You may need to soften the coconut oil, and/or mix everything together with your hands.
  • Sprinkle the topping over the apples and bake for 30min, or until apples are soft enough to pierce with a fork, but still slightly crunchy. Yummo!
