Vegan Autumn Apple Crumble
- 9–10 medium apples
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- Juice squeezed from 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoons almond butter
- 7 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 ½ cups oats
- 1 ¼ cup oat flour
- 1 scoop Sunwarrior Thermo Greens, green apple flavor
- ¾ cup pecans
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- a pinch of Sunwarrior Sea Salt
- Preheat the oven to 350
- Wash the apples, core them and cut into ½ inch pieces leaving the skin on. Alternatively, peel the apples before cutting them if you prefer softer texture.
- Put the apples in a big saucepan. Add 2 tsp. cinnamon, 2 tbsp. maple syrup and lemon juice and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally for 8-10 min or until soft.
- While the apples are cooking start making the crumble. Mix oat flakes with oat flour (if you don’t have oat flour you can simply make it by blending oat flakes in a food processor or high-speed blender), add scoop Thermo Greens, 5 tbsp. maple syrup, melted coconut oil and almond butter then mix thoroughly. Coarsely chop the pecans and add them and the dried cranberries to the crumble mix.
- Place the apples in a baking dish and put the crumble mix on top. Drizzle with maple syrup and put in the oven. Bake for 20 min or until golden-brown. Serve hot with plant-based custard or a scoop of vegan ice cream or enjoy on its own.
