Healthier Apple Crumble

AppleCrumble

So, my husband became a Citizen of the United States last week, YAY! It’s been a long process since his arrival from South Africa, so we are extremely happy to have this chapter behind us! Since America and Apple desserts seem to go hand in hand, I was in the kitchen on Sunday experimenting with healthier ways to create a delicious Apple Crumble, and I think I succeeded! It’s not too sweet, is full of fiber and fills the house with the most incredible aroma!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Filling

  • 5 Medium Sized Apples – Cut into chunks (I left the peel on.) (All I had on hand was Red Delicious, but any apple would do.)
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • Juice of 1 Orange
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1/8 Cup Honey, Pure Maple Syrup or Agave
  • 3 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. Nutmeg
  • 1 T. Cornstarch

Topping

  • ½ Cup Oats
  • ½ Cup Nuts (I used mixed which included pecans, almonds, cashews, brazil nuts & pistachios.)
  • ¾ Cup Ezekial 4:9 Almond Cereal
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/8 Cup Chopped Pecans

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Grease 9x9in. baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium sized bowl, toss all of the filling ingredients together and add to baking dish.
  • In a food processor, pulse the oats, nuts and coconut sugar, just until it’s a course mixture.
  • Add the Ezekial Cereal to a bowl, then mix in your oat/nut mixture and the coconut oil.
  • Add additional coconut oil by teaspoonful if needed, until the topping clumps together.
  • Sprinkle the topping over the apple filling.
  • Top with the chopped pecans.
  • Bake for 30 minutes while covered with foil.
  • Bake another 30-40 minutes after removing the foil, or until the apples are soft.
  • Enjoy!
