The humble apple crumble. One of those amazing desserts that everyone needs to enjoy! Having family and friends who are gluten or dairy free (or both!), there have been times when I’ve seeked out dessert recipes that please everyone. I am happy to report this vegan apple crumble, which is also gluten free, is high on my go-to list!
With no butter or flour, this has a beautiful subtle flavour from ground almonds and a bit more chunky substance from the oats. A hint of coconut flavour from the oil and the wonderful warmth of the cinnamon sings through. Cinnamon is exactly what makes apple crumble one of my favourite puddings ever! This is utterly scrumptious served with ice cream, custard, pouring cream or just on it’s own. It is comfort food at it’s best and honestly, I think it’s hard to beat!
Of course, if you’re looking for something more indulgent, go ahead and add some extra nuts to the apples. Or even some caramel is gorgeous! If you’re a purist though, just don’t mess with perfection. Don’t forget you can enjoy the caramel as part of my banoffee crumble as well.
I couldn’t do this post without mentioning the current time we’re living through. As an avid baker, finding my local grocery store had run out of basic ingredients like flour and eggs, was heartbreaking at first. However, I was determined to find alternative ways of allowing my family (and now yours!) to continue to enjoy baking and baked goodies. And so here we are! 🙂
So, back to my vegan and gluten free apple crumble: if you fancy yourself a little change, or indeed if you find yourself without flour or butter to hand, worry not! Delicious apple crumble can still be yours!
Happy baking, friends. And as always, thanks for dropping by!
