Apple-cranberry crumble

Only sweetened with maple syrup
Gluten free
This easy vegan apple crumble is one to keep well. Deliciously sweet, but without butter and without granulated sugar. We use maple syrup as an alternative to white sugar in this recipe. The nice thing about a healthy apple crumble is that you can also eat it for breakfast and give it to your children for dessert without any worries. That's extra fun! Pro tip: the secret to a good vegan crumble pie is that the topping is nice and crumbly. So make sure you don't knead the ingredients into a dough, but mix the ingredients very loosely with your fingers.

This is how you make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 180° C.
  2. Cut the apple into tiny pieces and put in a large bowl. Add all the ingredients for the base and mix.
  3. Put the apple layer in fire-proof dishes.
  4. Combine all the ingredients for the topping in a bowl. Loosely mix, so that it does not become a smooth dough but more of a crumbly mixture.
  5. Cover the apple layer with this mixture. Garnish with 1 tablespoon of extra sliced almonds and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
